1. Only in America can a pizza get to your house faster than an
ambulance.

2. Only in America are there handicap parking places in front of a
skating rink.

3. Only In America do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the
back of the store for their prescriptions while healthy people can buy
cigarettes at the front.

4. Only in America do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries
and a DIET coke.

5. Only in America do banks leave both doors open and then chain the
pens to the counters.

6. Only in America do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the
driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

7. Only in America do we use answering machines to screen calls and
then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to
talk to in the first place.

8. Only in America do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in
packages of eight.

9. Only in America do we use the word 'politics' to describe the
process so well: 'poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tic' meaning
'bloodsucking creatures'.

10. Only In America do we have drive up ATM machines with Braille
lettering.

Totally!!!

When I was a teenager, i worked at Round Table Pizza. All the fat people would come in and order a large combo with extra cheese and a diet coke! (you know, because they were on a diet)

Silly People...

I prefer the TASTE of diet coke as opposed to "real" coke. So, yes, I'm guilty of ordering a calorie-loaded meal and then a diet coke. :)

So true..here's another one...
If you're not supposed to drink and drive, why do bars have parking lots?

William H Macy is the cake taker in that movie, though...

I know what you mean - my husband and I can't even go into the garden tool section of Home Depot without pretending to be the shoveler;)
