    Only in America......do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke. !

    Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

    Only in America......do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' ! and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
