#BBCtrending: What baffles the world about the British?
What baffles you about the British?
Rather a lot, it seems, if the thousands of comments on a reddit thread are anything to go by.
Tired of all the discussion threads poking fun at his compatriots, an American user said he wanted to turn the tables for once: "Non-British people of Reddit, what about Britain is stupid/baffles you?" he asked. The question drew more than 25,000 comments in less than a week - from people of many different nationalities, not least the British themselves.
