The Germans call it the Nordsee, the British call it the German Sea and the Americans call it the North Sea. The British and Americans call it the English Channel, the French all it La Manche, "The Sleeve".

This is what happens when a female liberal blond eats a box of Stupid the morning of her big show. This girl should be shown at the begining of every single blond joke as justification for the humor.

Even the UK Admiralty sells North Sea Approaches charts.
