Other surprising news

The English national anthem (not to be confused with the British national anthem, "God Save the Queen") is a song called "Land of Hope and Glory." Statesiders will recognize it as "Pomp and Circumstance."

I hear it periodically through the day as English winners at the Commonwealth Games are given their gold medals.

The first time I heard it, I thought, "Oh good, they're graduating, too, unlike some athletes I could name," but it turns out it's just a song.

Do you mean, "God Save the Queen, her fascist regime, they made you a moron, a potential h bomb." I think that's a really good national anthem.

I'm picking "Anarchy for the UK."

You're right, that would be a good one, too.
