A quick geography lesson

It’s quite confusing to people to understand what the difference is between the United Kingdom, Great Britain and the British Isles…

Also: there are the British Islands (UK, Isle of Man, Gurnsey, Jersey) and the British Isles also include the Channel islands & Shetland islands

Reblogging on account of last night, when I very very super sleepily called Simon after my work dinner with my company’s VP and laughed as I explained to Simon that my VP kept referring to him as my “fiancé from Great Britain” and I realized I never used the term “Great Britain” before and in my exhaustion I started to wonder if I had ever even heard  of Great Britain.  Then Simon and I decided that Great Britain is probably just the United Kingdom barring “South Ireland”.
You know how hard things are when you’re tired, right?
