These are funny but true: Only in America does a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance. Only in America do we use the word politics to describe the process so well, poli meaning many and tics meaning blood sucking creatures. Only in America do we buy hot dogs in packages of 8 and buns in packages of 10. Only in America do they have escalators that go down.

Well... in Australia the ambulances are faster. It takes between 30 and 45 minutes to have a pizza delivered. Actually it take that time to have any takeaway food delivered. We have many poli in Australia... and they are all blood sucking creatures. Don't know about the hot dogs... but buns come in four, six or eight. And for every excalator which goes up... we have one going down. I guess they did not want to add an extra word to the dictionary. I also believe that escalators going down... can go up as well at the flick of a switch. Maybe that is why. lol

Very good point. Espically the one about pizza and a ambulance or a firetruck. The day that we were waiting on a firetruck if my house had been burning we wouldn't of had a house by the time they got here.

LOL that is so true, hehe...I'm not an American but I couldn't agree more ;o) And the hot dogs and buns, just imagine how strategically planned that is, less dogs so buy another pack of 8..cool na?! No wonder the people here are being looted.
