Cards Against Humanity has different country editions, like UK, US, and AU.

Are there differences between these editions other than grammar? What are those differences?

Yes, I have both the US and the UK version. There are different cards in both editions. And there are cards with slightly different texts (for example Dear Abby in the US version and Dear Agony Aunt in the UK version).

And some names are different (Margaret Thatcher only appears in the UK version). The UK version also contains Scottish warriors lifting their kilts and pronouncing the names of Welsh towns.

Yes. Further to Toon Krijthe's answer, there are a number of cards that have been adjusted for cultural resonance, particularly with local stereotypes and common words..

The base games are freely available as PDFs to print an play (indeed, this is how the game gained popularity) on their website. You can compare the US edition, UK edition and Australian edition.

Below are the differences I've found, up to and including page 11. Probably some of these will show up later in the document in the other side, and some are just spelling changes, but they serve to illustrate the changes between the editions.
