If anyone needs me, I’ll be outside standing in the rain, scrubbing myself vigorously with a toilet brush and singing Land of Hope and Glory until my skin bleeds steak and kidney pudding and I end up the right shade of pasty-white bovine spongiform British to actually be able to participate in the discussion. Cheerio.

spEak You're bRanes ("A collection of ignorance, narcissism, stupidity, hypocrisy and bad grammar") was a blog dedicated to chronicling the dumbest and most reactionary of reader contributions to British news websites—topics usually range from racism & nationalism to blind obsessions with the death penalty. It started with the BBC's Have Your Say comment sections but has since spread out. Think of it as a British media equivalent of Fundies Say the Darndest Things. The page has since disappeared, but the archived version is thankfully preserved for those who want to while away a few entertaining hours.

Its last article was published on February 2012, and the site closed in November 2015.[2]
