It almost sounds like the setup to a joke, but it's true. Recently, a British grandmother asked Google a question so politely that half the Internet downright lost it. We shouldn't be too surprised — even when they're angry, British people are polite. So, a British grandmother (or "nan," to use their word) doing something extra-politely is just further proof that the British Isles are more or less a parody of themselves.
Yep, British gentleman Ben Eckersley (a name that sounds like it belongs to a polo captain) tweeted out a pic of ol' nan's computer screen that read: "please translate these roman numerals mcmxcviii thank you." Ever hear of screenshots, Ben? Ah, whatever, we can't be too mad at you. After all, you're sharing joy with the world.
