When trending hashtags appear on Twitter, it's usually in the wake of a big event or recognising something major. But then there are other times when people from a particular community come together and share mini-stories via a simple hashtag.
Today's hashtag is #AwfullyBritishFakeFacts and while many of them are obviously fake, it does ring true to an element of UK culture.
Some of the comments pay homage to the classic British way of apologising at virtually any moment. While some might see it as being over-polite, at least the UK doesn't have a reputation for being rude and obnoxious.
#awfullybritishfakefacts It's mandatory to learn how to queue other wise you fail your GCSEs in the UK.

Other Twitter users highlight the lack of a proper 'summer' season, the adoration of tea, and of course the naming of bread. Of course, it didn't take too long for it to get serious, with a few tweets mentioning Brexit and politicians.
But luckily, the majority of the comments were in jest. You're all a bunch of profusely apologising, tea drinkers who don't like talking on public transport, apparently.
