There are no true chavs here -- the ones who'll glass a stranger, tear off their wing mirrors, and beat and mug their own grandmothers.

The only difference I see is that people have a lot more kids here, and at a younger age. In my group of friends at home, no-one had kids til age 30, and then only 1, max 2. Here, everyone seems to have 3 or 4 by the time they are 30.

Ten good things about Americans :

1. Living amongst them means I don't have to live near Wales and France.
2. They give you massive portions of food in restaurants and free refills.
3. They prefer rock music to pop music.
4. They are friendlier to kids than English people who prefer dogs.
5. American women seem to have better breasts. Not necessarily bigger
but just better maintained.
6. American women have better tans.
7. American women have nicer smiles
8. I get along better with American women than English women
9. Americans like to start wars with scum bag countries rather than form
"unions" or "communities" with them.
10. Americans have all watched every episode of "Are you being served"
on PBS which was my favourite show as a kid.

Since this forum also has a sizeable 'septic' audience, you might want to add a disclaimer making it clear that you are taking the pi$$...

You're thinking of "Men in Black" where they got velcro from the aliens.
