Have I mentioned how much I love British English?

Bad Science editor (and now author) Ben Goldacre comments at the end of an extract from his new book:
You can also buy [my book] from Amazon for £6.49, and I recommend doing so, because the price might go up later, and then you’d feel a right charlie.
Edit: Another post contains this lovely description:
What I particularly enjoy is the spectacle of fat people – ideally drinking beer – watching television, while somewhere on the other side of the world citizens of all nations are getting some nice exercise in the Olympics (throwing javelins, jumping over metal bars, climbing lamp posts with banners, and running away from the water cannon).
