@German,
Ooh, I have a question about Germany.

Would it be cheaper to buy good (new) Lederhosen from a reputable Ye Olde Hosen sboppe, or should I purchase it from Walter's Lithuanian friend, as he suggests?

At every intersection, there is a McDonalds on one corner, a Burger King on the opposite corner, a Taco Bell on the corner in between and a Chic-fil-A opposite that. They all have many security cameras, and if you walk past the corner on more than two occasions without visiting any of those restaurants, the security control center alerts a special team of Jehovah's Witnesses who will then follow you around trying to get you to talk about Jesus, and pressing copies of Watchtower magazine on you. The streets in between are usually littered with crack houses and the tenements of those who turn adolescent girls into prostitutes, manufacture methamphetamine or sell illegal firearms. These houses are usually guarded by savage bulldogs or black gangsters. That is why most of us drive everywhere we go. Thankfully, all of those restaurants have drive-throughs.

@Setanta,
Set, isn't it also true that all the police cars have their sirens switched on when the engine is running, and that donut shops are always filled with cops?

Yes . . . this was first revealed to the rest of the world by the musical group The Bangles, in 1986 . . .

If you want to find all the cops
They're hanging out in the donut shop
They sing and dance (Oh whey oh)
They spin the clubs and cruise down the block.

@Setanta,
Love that song. Also Manic Monday.

They (Bangles) are the US equivalent of our Bananarama.

@Setanta,
Except Chicago. Firearms are almost completely outlawed, but visitors are expect to show up with their own submachine guns. Thompson is the brand of choice.

@roger,
They have a big submachine gun party every February 14th, too.

Here are Unit 4 plus 2, trying to recreate the typical New York backdrop for their 60's hit, Concrete and Clay.

Good job, boys. No sirens though. It's also incredible how your drummer can make his tambourine sound like a full drum set. Most impressive.

@Setanta,
uhm well in germany we don't have these sort of partys. On german partys teenager meet together like me and my friend (16) and the we drink alkohol like vodka beer rum till the morning. Well in german u can drink beer with 16 jears and hard things 50% with 18. But when u carry a gun with you you'll be under arrest in 5 seconds. So every country have their advantages and disadvantages i think. No cop in germany cares when u walk down the street while drinking some vodka.

And, like Henning Vehn says, get to be mean to Muslims because there aren't any Jews left.

Yes, America is completely animated, the change normally occurs mid Atlantic, so make sure you employ a reputable cartoonist.

Sound advice . . . what with the "partying" all night on beer and vodka, he'll need to keep his wits about him . . .

Well, first of all, those aren't movies. They're TV shows. And no, nothing in America is like Family Guy or American Dad. That's the joke.

The streets in American cities are, on the whole, much straighter than streets in German cities. That's why we won the war.

Yes.

No. On every corner there's a Walgreen's or CVS or Duane Reade pharmacy.

I think all of the business references in the GTA series are fake. In general, you shouldn't judge the US by the depictions found in violent video games. The US is only about half as violent in real life as it is in GTA.

Maybe. It's not easy to see the US when the view is blocked by all those fat guys in electronic wheelchairs.
