And our cars don't have wings either! British cars don't even fly worth a damn anyway.

And the head is part of the engine instead of being the roof, though we screw it up by referring to the material on the inside of the car under the roof as being the headliner.

And we shorten "gasoline" to "gas", though it's not a gas, and in UK they call it "petrol", even though it's not petroleum, just made from it, which is like calling a pork chop, "pig".

Well, enough of this. I'm getting tyred.
