25 Clever Similarities Between Whales And Wales To Make You Think

If you’re not British, you might have a hard time understanding this list, but pretty much all you need to know is that the English love to poke fun at the their Welsh neighbors. To give you an analogy that might make this more clear, they are jokingly seen as something along the lines of “British rednecks” (broadly speaking). For the purposes of this list, however, we are going to take this a step further. We are going to compare Wales to whales. It sounds crazy right? And it is. But as nuts as this sounds, you’ll soon see that these two have a lot more in common than you would think. Okay, we’re going to clarify that. Certain items on this list are pretty serious, if not even sad. For example, both Wales and whales being hunted by the English. But others are definitely just exposing the wacky and sometimes hard to understand humor of the British. For example, both having bad teeth, or both being really difficult to understand. Either way, hopefully you’ll realize that this list is partially a joke, partially a history lesson, and partially an attempt to give you some insight into British humor. These are 25 Clever Similarities between Whales And Wales To Make You Think!
