Who puts baked beans all over chips/fries???

Heck, I grew up with one foot in the US and the other in Canada, with relatives straight off the boat from England and Ireland. I've had chips that were crisps, frittes that were chips, bangers, fags, tobac, soda and pop. In the Great White North, the chips are fries, or frittes, but then again usually they're poutine... but that has cheese curd and gravy... and sometimes peas. And the dread Quarter Pounder... no, Vincent Vegas was wrong, it's not a "Royale with Cheese"... it's the Quart de Livre: 113g precooked weight.

Why is your loo one floor above you? That seems less-than-convenient.

In Lateralus' defence, humour him, CF. When you try to centre your post around differing dialogue from across the pond, logic is sometimes kicked to the kerb. He might have used some better judgement in arranging the words, but I think you're analysing his manoeuvre too critically.

One thing not to get confused in the Anglo-American lexical crossover is a "twink" and a "twinkie".

I hate to say this but I don't know what a twink is! it sounds raunchy but I'm not sure if I have ever had one or not?!

Up until 2002, we had a Mars Bar, too, but it wasn't the same as yours. It is now called a Snickers Almond Bar.

And, here in the USA, we deep-fry everything.

Oreos:

Actually, the American version of the Mars bar is called...

a Mars bar. M&M Mars Company is one of the 2 major American Candy companies we have... that and Hershey. I'm guessing, though, like just about everything else in the Empire, your Mars bar is made by Nestlé?

Our snickers bars were originally marathon bars.

Oh and aluminum is pronounced al-you-mini-um where US pronounces it a-lumi-num. Wow there are loads of differences aint there!

Have you US guys/gals ever sampled the London speciality of pie mash and liquor? It seriously rocks.

Deep-Fried Bacon Someartzey! for some reason, it seems even more outrageous than the Oreos! That must be some deep munch!

CF, I ate one of them there Hershey bars someone brought me back from New york, and it was a totally different taste buzz altogether, what does a Twinky taste like or what is it's equivalent? can someone send me one?! also I always see that eggs benedict in the films, is it as nice as it sounds?


SBP:

I concur! tell you what though, eat enough of that with a few pints of Guinness and it's pebble-dash city in the bog! (I never did get the hang of the quotation marks but I know I'm not the only one so that makes me feel better!)

Latters:
I thought a lorry was a taxi. Or am i way wrong there?

Taxi drivers don't eat Yorkies (which SBP is NOT for girls as you know!)...(that's bound to stir up the translatlantic lexiconography (made up word)) but you got it straightaway! now you stick to flake's and we'll get on famously! Very Happy

P.S. all what miniscule knowledge i have of British culture comes from Monty Python and Gordon Ramsey

They both rock!

lol Lat, a lorry is just....a lorry? You may be confused as we call a taxi (aswell as just.....a taxi) a cab...which a lorry also has. Lorry.....big vehicle, sometimes articulated, with about a million wheels and often found transporting goods. What do you guys call it then?

Oh, thats the toy trucks we let the little girls play with. Neutral

Maybe a van in other places.

Yeah, "truck" is a pretty generic term that fits "lorry" pretty well, regardless of size. And SBP, most of us say "bathroom", or some more clever euphamism... I haven't spoken the word lavatory since the 3rd grade, and even then it got shortened to "lav".
