The following are real things that have been said to me since I arrived here in the States from the UK. I thought they were funny and worth posting...it's quite strange the concepts or is that misconceptions some people have about us foreignors :blink:

Have you ever had a Mcdonalds cheeseburger?

Have you ever eaten barbecue food before?

Have you ever seen snow before!!?? (England right!!!lol)

Do you have malls in England? I quite enjoyed responding that where I lived (Newcastle) there is the largest shopping mall in Europe ;)

Do you get the Rolling Stones in England?

Do you have New Years Eve in England!!!!!!????

And my personal favourite>>>>>>>

Do you celebrate the 4th July in England!!!!!!!?????

:blink::blink::unsure:

Our Second Anniversary

I want to succeed in America where, unlike Britain, they do not regard ambition as being the same as eating babies.

The National Rifle Association says that, "Guns don't kill people, people do," but I think the gun helps, you know? I just think just standing there going, "Bang!" That's not going to kill too many people, is it? You'd have to have a really dodgy heart to have that happen.

There's a huge hole in the whole Flood drama, because anything that could float or swim got away scot-free, and it was the idea to wipe out everything, He didn't say, "I will kill everything, except the floating ones and the swimming ones, who will get out due to a loophole."

:lol: About 3 months after Mohammed came to America, we went to my company's holiday dinner. A lady at our table was just amazed that he came from another country. She was asking him questions all night! She wanted to know if they had roads. :huh:

When the dinner was served, she asked him 'What do you eat in Jordan?' He calmly looked up and said 'food'. :D

hey.... when I lived in Japan I was asked "do you have Rainbows in Canada?"... I thought that one was pretty special.

Only real weird questions I've had here were to explain the constitional monarchy system of government (?!) and "so how come you're not a citizen if you're married to one?"... if only it were that easy!

I used to work in a call center and this one poor young lady from the US said "until a week ago I didn't know Canada was a country"

I asked her what she thought it was?? It was hilarious!

I grew up in South Africa and when I went to visit my best friend in Texas I was asked:

Do you live in a mud hut?

How come you are white? I thought only black people lived in Africa. :whistle:

Do you have roads?

Do you travel to school by zebra? (I replied "no, by Ostrich") :wacko:

Do you have television?

I have now lived in the UK for 10 years so I sort of call myself British. Moving to the good old South I am sure I will get some interesting questions. A lot of Americans seem to think the rest of the world lives in the dark ages...it's quite sad an worrying really that some of our kids are gonna be educated with the same people who ask these sorts of questions :unsure:

OMG!!! :lol::lol: That is too funny! Especially the last one. Are we Brits really from another planet or something? :lol:

I've visited my friends in San Diego, CA, many many times and on one occaision I volunteered to help out at a summer school that my friend was the head of. I basically just assisted this group of teenagers in a class of 3rd or 4th graders. It was great fun. During morning break, these 2nd Graders(might have been younger, I can't remember)came up to me in the playground and started asking me loads of silly questions 'cos they had heard I was British(have to remember that a lot of kids at that age probably haven't left the US for a holiday yet). One kid asked me "Do you drink tea with the Queen?". It was so cute I just laughed and said "no". The things kids say these days is so sweet!

A friend of mine drove to California a few years back. When someone noticed the cord coming out of the hood of her car they asked what it was for. She said we plug our cars in during winter months so they don't freeze. The lady said 'Don't the cords get all tangled up on the roads?". She thought we kept them plugged in while we drove!

I have been asked if I live in an igloo.

It really amazes me how small some peoples worlds are.

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

My friend went over to the US some years ago as an exchange student and got asked if we have toilet paper and cars here in germany. She answered "well, what do u think mercedes comes from?"

One guy asked her if Hitler is still in charge, seriously :lol:

The world around you gets hazy and the only thing you focus on is you and that person. And for that one moment you've been given this amazing gift and you want to laugh and you want to cry at the same time because you're so lucky you've found it and so scared that it will go away.
