But... You used British as a noun in that sentence, so of course it's "proper"... I fear I might be missing a joke :P
Brits are so "I tell a joke but I sound 100% serious" sometimes, it can be hard to tell. Plus it's the Internet.
Well, I reckon we should toss this conversation in the bin, and, er... bloody something.
(I think I have exhausted all of my British vocabulary, sadly).
