"Trash" instead of "rubbish".
Even the pronounciation of letters.

“LOL! I was going to make the point that Halloween is European in origin (as in All Hallow's 'Eve, which is a Catholic observance) but that's poinyless. We're the ones spreading it, along with everything else so we might as well get the credit along with the blame! Woohoo, I love being an American. I just hope everyone else will, too.”

“I shouldnt really stand too high on my soap box.
We've given you
*Russell Crowe (I know he's a Kiwi but if your from NZ and famous, we'll claim you.)”

“I saw him speaking at the National Press Club. He can't be as bad as Daddy... or can he? LOL
'Peas in a pod', or no?”
“Glad you all like my pick. The new Afghan leader talks like a American and looks like one. He'll do everything I want him to do... including put through the pipeline. Kiss my ass, Omar !”
