Here are some more I found on the net:

In the UK "cigarettes" are called "faggs!" That has the potential to become an interesting situation when looking to feed your habit here in the US. Another one; in the UK an "eraser" is called a "rubber" so you could see the dilemma of a kid from the UK asking his US teacher for an eraser. There are tons more you can have some fun with..."chips" in the UK are "French Fries" here in the US. "Crisps" in the UK are our version of "chips." Here's another one..."Knickers" are "Underwear," and a "Tosser" is their version of a "Fool or Idiot," Here's a quote I found that kinda sums things up nicely... "The keynote of American civilization is a sort of warmhearted vulgarity. The Americans have none of the irony of the English, none of their cool poise, none of their manner. But they do have a friendliness. Where an Englishman would give you his card, an American would very likely give you his shirt."

DUDE. I am coming back to ATL in May for like a week... doing a Braves / Reds game and shizzle.

Hope you are around.



Glad to see you have a sense of humor. :) Good top ten lists are harder to put together than it seems sometimes. :)

I love #5. LOL

And my reaction to #6 was:
"What, no refills?!!" LOL

Emily aka EmmoGomer

Very funny Mark!
You have to know we English folks wouldn't ordinarily use the term that something 'rocks' unless we are refering to Third Day!!
Third Day most definately ROCK!!


Ha ha!!! Had a good laugh at both of those lists. I love #10 - cos all intelligent Brits know that Georgia is part of Russia... right??!

#5 and #10 are funny. Nice job, Mark!


lol! I love the last one!

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
