Only in America...

  • 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 to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
  • 4. Only in America......do people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet Coke.
  • 5. Only in America......do banks leave both doors to the vault 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 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
  • 10. Only in America......do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.
