hmmmmm I like this topic!

For now I'll just add:

the plethora of fast-food

I ate McDonalds and Popeyes today and am feeling very American.

I'm going to go sleep it off now.

It's gonna have to be more than one for me -- and I'm a native.

The typical US sports -- ugh. Can't stand 'em. Can't stand the slavish devotion so many have to them either.

SUVs -- hate 'em. And hate the people who think they "need" them. For the vast majority of these folks a mini van or a frickin' car would meet their needs just as well. Want is different than need. And when the owners of the very largest SUVs bitch about gas prices... Morons.

Commercial radio. Most TV. Hell, most of the entertainment industry sucks.

I'm sure I'll come up with more, I'm a cranky old bitch.

I just like peanut butter. And not great globs of it either.

Now they even have both peanut butter and jam in the same jar.

yes I don't know why they must package them together like this. I've seen peanut butter and jam squares... you unwrap it like a slice of cheese and lay it on the bread

I can't stand jams or jellies. I only like peanut butter on my white bread (Yes...I'll only eat white bread....can't stand wheat or the kinds of bread with the bits of stuff in it....life fruit, herbs or nuts).

I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches - with Fritos....AND football, basketball, baseball and love apple pie (when mom makes them)

Hate SUVs though - why do people need those big gas hogs??? Most of American TV does suck - except CSI

Oh there's a good few alright!

I can't follow American football AT ALL ( Proper football is much more entertaining, even tho' i'm not a huge footie fan!)

American spellings

Some American versions of words like dypers(sp?) instead of nappies

Obsession with eating lots of steak

Paying for having your life saved wtf? (We are so lucky in Britain to have the NHS even if it's not nearly perfect )

Root beer

But i do love apple pie!
