Americanese is such a different language from English (well SA English anyway). Have you ever asked an American what a "rubber" is?

 

I was also thinking of the other "rubbers":whistling:

We say chips and you say fries, I had problems ordering at Burger King in Fort Lauderdale with this one.

 

The one that gets me is "biscuits".

What we call "buns".

We ordered lunch here at the airport and ordered a burger and chips and we got a burger and "crisps". When in Miami we went to Fridays and ordered a burger and chips and got a burger and "crisps". What the hell is it with the "crisps", if I wanted "crisps" I could have bought a packet of cheap nik naks to go with my burger.

I wanna know by Ruthie what Peanut Butter & Jelly is, I eat peanut butter and jam and peanut butter and golden syrup but JELLY????

 

I recently received a jar of Cheese Marmite and as I have never in my life tasted it I was a wee bit scared BUT was pleasantly surprised to find it tastes like Melrose cheese spread. Today I made slap chips (fries for Ruthie) and put them on my bread with Cheese Marmite and "BY JOVE!!!!!", it was most delightful.

I'll gladly give sweet potato chips a miss thanks. Sweet potato chips sounds as bad as Carrot cake.

When George Bush got hacked off with the French for not supporting America against

Iraq he said they were no longer "French Fries" - just fries.

Marvelous! You are ideally suited to work for our government. Perhaps you can

start a call for Tax Freedom.
