    They didn’t mention “people of walmart”. 2 skinny UK kids astonished at the sheer size of the average walmart shopper.

    #30–andy==good review of the cultural exchange. Greg is very well world traveled, I’m surprised he posted as he did. Must be tired and his good christian helmet slipped off a bit.

    Greg, is everything going ok for your right now? No kiddies in hospital as the Brits would say? I hope so.

    My own travels are just as andy says: humor at the small differences, appreciation for the best of what both cultures provide: I want it all. Have to travel to get it though.

    # 21 McCullough said, “His Blood pressure was 123 over 72 or pre hypertensive.”

    Yes, it IS pre-hypertensive. VERY pre-hypertensive. Some might even say it was -egad- normal.

    Never too young to be normal…

    I thought aviator-goggle kid was cute. He looked like he was up for a game of Quiddich.

    #26 – I noticed the goggles too.

    If you wear goggles you are either a Japanese cartoon character, or less than 8 years old, or an idiot.

    I think Liam fits the “idiot” category.

    andycatus and Bobbo,

    I have a lot of personal baggage on this issue, having been condescended to by I don’t know how many non-Americans.

    One thing they do is go to America’s WORST places to prove their point — and then they tell ME about it!

    I NEVER EVER do that to other people’s countries. It’s just rude.

    I’ve been to some pretty hell-holish places but I can always find something good to say about their culture.

    I’m not saying all foreigners are like that — but it’s quite a few and the British are some of the worst.

    # 36 GregAllen “…the British are some of the worst.”

    Oh, Greg. So true. So True. And I was MARRIED to a Brit!

    Such a silly pair of Brits but so many amusing comments on here.. =)

    I will mention one thing.. Does anyone else hate the one-billion gigawatts of unnatural florescent lighting in these stores.. and the throngs of zombies in most Wal-Mart stores?

    Maybe I’m just allergic to florescent lighting AND zombies. Could be.

  9. Dexton7 says:

    #3 bobbo,

    I haven’t been on here in a while… and now you are starting to sound like me with my rantings..

    Did you join the Sons of Liberty while I was gone?
