Whenever a white Brit goes on holiday, they will embark upon a search for the cheapest, tackiest souvenir they can find. Snowglobes of the Eiffel Tower are considered humorous, as are keyrings of the Coliseum, comedy vintage coasters, and awful postcards. If the object has some sort of unintended comedy value, all the better. White Brits display their Pope-themed lollies, or ‘Lollipopes’, around the house as a badge of honour.
The ability to find such objects amusing does denote a certain snobbishness and condescension, but, crucially, also signifies an advanced sense of irony. This is something white Brits never tire of.
Comedy mugs, in particular, deserve a special mention. A white Brit’s mug is their pride and joy, and, like puns, the worse it is, the better. Although white Brits are noted for their fervent anti-royalist sentiment, ironic purchases of Royal Wedding mugs by them will account for roughly 90% of the total sales. Although the coalition is universally hated, Con-dem-nation tankards are a must-have item, and mugs with non-celebrities on them are always a winner, too. Novelty items such as moustache mugs or nose mugs are especially prized, and will enable a white Brit to display their easy-going, fun-loving nature every time they enjoy a cup of tea.
