America, the Ironic

This is a fun list and if you can think of any feel free post them in your comments.

  • Only in America can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

  • Only in America will you find handicap parking in front of a skating rink

  • Only in America do drugstores make the sick walk to the back of the store to get their prescriptions and cigarettes are at the front

  • Only in America do people order a double cheeseburger, large fries and a diet coke.

  • Only in America do banks leave both doors open and then chain pens to the counters.

  • Only in America do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put useless junk in our garage.

  • Only in America do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call.

  • 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 mean “many” and tics mean “bloodsucking creatures.”

  • Only in America do they have drive up ATM machines with Braille.
