PostSubject: Tweet Commemorating The Burning Of The White House   Tue Aug 26, 2014 12:06 pm

Quote :
British humor and politeness battled for supremacy online this Sunday, the 200th anniversary of one of the signature events of the War of 1812. But in this social media battle, unlike the War of 1812 itself, there was a clear loser: The funny side blinked.

It's been exactly 200 years since the British burned down the White House. It has now been less than 24 hours since the British Embassy in Washington tweeted a joke about it.

Tweeting an image of a cake adorned with British and American flags, the Embassy staff joked yesterday that it was "commemorating" the destruction of the White House two centuries ago — but it was “only sparklers this time!”

It doesn't really bother me, so I don't see it being inappropriate. I can see some people getting their panties bunched about it though. People joke all the time about things that are touchy. Is this really that touchy?
