Only in North America.......do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.
Only in North America.......do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
Only in North America.......do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
Only in North America.......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
Only in North America ......do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.

EVER WONDER ...
Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Why don't you ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?
Why is it that doctors and lawyers call what they do "practice"?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dish washing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Salem, the cat, would really like an answer to this one.
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
