I have been much entertained by the comments (and thousands of hits) inspired by my On American Football post. This, I now realise, is how to blog - you insult Americans. I feel slightly guilty as I do have something of a pro-American record. On the other hand, it's fun and easy traffic. So:
1)How can so many of you be stupid enough to vote for Hillary? There you are trying to spread democracy around the world while - Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton- back home you resort to dynastic rule.
2)How come you're all so fat?
3)Don't get me started on baseball. Over here it's called rounders and played by very young schoolgirls.
4)Are you ever going to build a decent car?
5)Shepherd, Mitt and Dakota are not viable first names.
6)It is not necessary always to lie and say 'Great' when asked 'How are you doing?' A much better answer is the traditional English 'Mustn't grumble.'
7)Budweiser is the vilest drink ever created by man and is not beer.
8)Nobody anywhere at any time looks good in a baseball cap.
I could go on but I might jeopardise my I-Visa.
