Wow.

You had possibly.

The MOST clichéd birthday dinner ever.
I am so so so jealous it sounds fun and delicious and iconic and not at all like my retarded smarties-themed birthday when I had smarties ice cream and smarties D: I forgot I didn't even like smarties. M&ms are far superior and anyway the ice cream made them stupidly hard and inedible, and was also bland as milk-flavoured ice cream. Which is what it was.
for US and most people: smarties in the UK and UK-related nations are not even close to what they are in the US. Not even a little bit.

So jealous T!!

Wait, hold on, aren't M&Ms smarties? Like, M&Ms is the name and smarties is what they are? Like, Haribo Goldbären are still gummybears, right?

No, M&M's are different from Smarties. These are M&M's.

These are Smarties.

Yeah, in Germany we call M&Ms smarties, I've never seen that other thing

EDIT: To be more clear, technically, they are two different brands though. Here, have the German wiki page on Smarties

Yeah man, it's a cliche for a reason, because it works! also I have never seen those smarties before in my life. Like OJ, the only smarties I've seen look similar to M&Ms, but kinda thinner. Are those smarties even chocolate filled?

And Spark, this is what you get when you try to crossbreed pokemon but aren't very good at it. ...or are too good at it

I don't know why y'all think Smarties have chocolate in them. That's just wrong.

Wiki says those are NOT filled with chocolate and are called Rockets outside of the USA

EDIT: By which wikipedia apparently only means Canada, since they are the only ones besides the USA who have these

Haha guys I DID warn you. I told you in no unclear terms that they weren't the same. What, did you think that M&Ms have a monopoly on sugar-coated chocolates? Talk about Ameri-centric guys :B

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smarties see told you, your ones barely even qualify as interesting!

Anyway, OJ, I think what you've got there is a case of brand confusion. It happens a lot. For example, the majority of my neighbours insist on calling Vacuum cleaners Hoovers. Or, (and this one is interesting) the Spanish for Tissues is Kleenex. I wish I was joking, I really do. It's kinda different though. BOTH M&Ms and Smarties are rival brands. They're both sugar-shelled chocolate candies. THAT'S the generic term.

Don't call Pepsi coke guys! Don't call photoediting photoshopping! And don't call potato chips/crisps (both are allowed, get over it) Taytos! But it's probably just Ireland that does that last one. It's a very popular brand AND it invented the technique of flavouring potato chips/crisps so it's kinda warranted.

Another common brand name that people assume is generic: Velcro. I think the generic name is actually "hook-and-loop tape". And while I've heard people use "coke" as a generic term for soda (if you call it "pop", you're wrong), and Photoshopping is what everyone calls photoediting now, I think your "Taytos" example is indeed Ireland-specific, because I've never heard it before. I have heard "tater chips", though.

Calling a product by the name of it's most popular brand is a common thing as far as I know. Noone in Germany asks for a paper tissue, I mean seriously "Papiertaschentuch"? Who says that? No, you ask for a tempo and who the fuck cares if it's actually a tempo or not, all paper tissues are tempo.

What I'm getting from this is German words for things are too long to be worth saying. We just say "get tissue". If we said " get Kleenex", we'd specifically mean that brand. What's the German for milk?

Also lmao happy birthday you tempo sneezing looney Very Happy

The German word for milk is Milch.

And yeah, I guess we mainly use brand names instead of the product name if the other name is either weird to say (like M&Ms) or long (Papiertaschentuch)

And thank you  Very Happy

I knew that. Did anyone else knew that? Because I did. Drega's birthday is totally on the 31st of this month. I know basically everything.

(wait shit what's his name again?)

It is also your HOP BURN DAY. Go burn an entire field of hops. Don't leave a single one untouched.
except for like three, which you will use to make beer and drink all of it.
HOP BURN DAY DREGA!

A young Drega stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 31st of May, is this young man's birthday. Though it was eighteen years ago he was given life, it is only today he will be considered an adult!
