Angol nyelvterületen a szleng és az ironikus kritizálás már-már művészeti ág, aminek igen nagy mestere Simon Cowell, az amerikai X-faktor atyja. Cowell híres és hírhedt modoráról, ám az biztos, hogy ha sértegetésről van szó, nincsen párja. Persze, az angolok is könnyedén felveszik a kesztyűt, ha vicces visszavágásokról van szó, legyen akár szóban vagy SMS-en keresztül. Szeretnél néhány vicces fordulatot tanulni a szigetlakóktól? A most következő Celebangol bejegyzésünkben mesterfokra emelheted angol kritizálási képességedet!
