I seem to like Americans.
Canadians are pretty nice people too, but there is one thing about Americans that I really love.
On the 4th of July...
...they go frickin nuts, celebrating the day they got rid of the British.
Yep, couldn't wait to get shot of the nutty King and his lackeys.
They fought, lost, fought again, lost again, but kept on fighting until we were out of there.
But this doesn't stop a lot of them getting totally over excited about our Royal family - weddings, births, etc seem to get a lot of Yankies far more excited than I get! And countless thousands trek over here every year to see our palaces, watch the changing of the guard and buy a mug with a photo of The Queen on it.
Am I the only one who sees this as a bit odd?
I guess it would be a bit like the English banning Cricket and then getting all excited about games the Australians and Indians are playing.
Certainly odd to my mind, but I still love it.
