I just want to chip in here with a little snippet of British intelligence seen on last night's Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model. Elle McPherson was talking to the models and told them that a clue would be coming up about where they would be travelling to next. Seconds later a Canadian Mountie on a horse turned up, and none of the six girls had any idea what he was. One of them confessed that she thought he was "Mexican, because of the hat". I just thought I'd bring it to the thread to show that idiots aren't just from the USA - they are bred everywhere.
My favourite overheard conversation of the week (stalking excepted, obviously)

As a poet mate of mine wrote of supermodels, 'so thin ... and yet, so thick.'
Gerry, don't knock the Micra, it uses almost no fuel and you don't so much park it as pick it up and put it in the space. I had one for several years as a 2nd car to get to work and back, a real junker, and there is nothing more terrifying than driving one at over 50mph on a motorway. My ex father in law (a motor racer) picked it up cheap at auction and told me via email that he'd bought me something small and red, hence after that it was called "the sports car". For years my son would see a Micra and shout "Sports car!". I also once had a Civic Coupe, I quite miss that.
Many years ago; American girl in hotel in northern Cyprus (where she was a dancer at a new mafia owned casino) to the Oxford-educated, Turkish waitress. "Hey, Get me a cheese sandwich. And I want proper Cheddar not your local shit."
Just so wrong on so many different levels
Kim, I believe it. Education is truly secondary now.
BJ, laughed out loud when I read that. I kinda doubt that any American said "proper cheddar" though.
