Is that the whole North American continent, or just the USA? I have a friend who's gone to Canada for the summer - I'd better warn him just in case . . .

And as I am sure you realise, I was purely highlighting a difference between accents in general on our different sides of the pond. Like we say "brotha", you guys say "brotherrrrr". No slight intended

Honestly - I was purely illustrating the difference between British and American accents! Maybe I went overboard with the r's at the end, but I had to put a few down to establish the difference! And you know it!

Nah - the tube is in London. It's the Supertram up here in Sheffield - but I am planning on visiting the chippie for dinner tonight; however I don't like fish, so instead of fish, it'll either be pie or sausage for me

The fish 'n' chip shop does sell more than just fish to have with your chips - which, like I said, is fortunate for me, as I don't like fish. I usually have a pie, or a couple of sausages, instead. As for "by the links", I haven't the foggiest notion what you're on about man!

OK. Pies as in savoury tarts - you know what tarts are, right? (Uh-oh)
