Stupid Americans. Favourite is British. Favorite is American.

Favorite is not misspelled, it depends on where you live. Some countries people are taught to use the letter U in some words. Such as favourite, colour, honour.

#41 OP didn't spell Favorite wrong. There's a difference between American and British English. In American English, it's "Favorite" and in British English it's "Favourite"

CAN WE PLEASE, for the love of all that is good in the world; 1) Acknowledge that people in different parts of the world spell things differently. 2) Realise that people also make typos. 3) Read previous post before saying the same thing as dozens of other people. 4) Google first, then post. 5) Accept that there are stupid people everywhere, not just in America and that you can't judge an entire country by Internet user comments anyway. I have a friend who named her kid Jack Daniel. I died a little on the inside when I found out.

56, you are stereotyping all Americans as being stupid which shows that you have no class. I could stoop to your level and say that your people all have fucked up teeth, but I don't, do I?

137- his use of elusive is right. if British people elude a conversation, they escape notice in a conversation. about the argument: it's all because of Nancy. OP- FYL hard buddy. who names their kid after a drink??

41 you are a closed minded bigot who fucked up and is now trying to cover for it by exposing your racist tendancies, and is now looking even stupider - not all Americans are stupid, but it's people like you who perpetuate the stereotype, and it's unfair on the rest of the fine American people here (especially Jessie :)) oh, and your photo makes you look like a tryhard faggot oh, and Australians also spell it colour :) have a nice day, douche

192- calling someone a bigot AND a faggot in the same comment is a bit counterproductive. Also, "stupider" is not a word. Anywho OP, what exactly is in an "Anonymous?" PS, how do people in the UK pronounce lieutenant?

people shut the fuck up we get it's how fucking Brits, Aussies, and Canadians spell. and proper yea right. every country has a right and wrong way of spelling. at certain places in America it is considered wrong to spell words like realize as realise and color as colour. now fucking end it. also not all Americans are dumb but we are smart enough to go to the dentist when our teeth look messed up...

Wow 350, you claim not all Americans are dumb and then go on to insult the entire UK. Most Americans are smart, so I'm guessing you're the exception that proves the rule? The teeth comment is a little reductive. Maybe you can defend your country without insulting another one? Also I feel obligated to point out that due to the free dental and orthodontic care which is provided to low income individuals, most people have completely healthy teeth.

okay idiots who don't know this, the first dictionary written in the united states (a Webster) had many of it's words' spellings change intentionally because back then (and for some ppl still now) Americans hate British teabag scumbags.

Actually OP was named after the drink (Used Condom)... Coincidently that is also how OP came to be in this world as well.

I would hate to be named after a wrestler but dusty isnt a horrible name especially for a girl. I on the other hand was named after a guy with the surname of Banger. Yea.. I'm serious
