18 British Shower Thoughts That Are Pretty Deep, Innit?

British shower thoughts hit differently than American ones. That’s because they say them in a nice accent. And they spell stuff with a “u” where a “u” doesn’t belong. Other than that, they’re pretty similar to other shower thoughts. However, the subjects of all these thoughts from the ol’ water closet are patently English.

As an American who went to London for exactly one week in 2005, I can honestly say I’m an expert in British culture. That’s the American way. I know everything about a country after a quick Wikipedia search and going there once. Good for me. Honestly, though, these random deep thoughts from England really opened my eyes. They’re just as deep as we are. I had no idea.

Here are the funniest and weirdest British shower thoughts from across the pond:
