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

    Only in America - are there handicap parking places in front of a
    skating rink.

    Only in America - do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to
    the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy
    people can buy cigarettes at the front.

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

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

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

    Only in America - do we use answering machines to screen calls
    and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone
    we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

    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.'

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

    Only in America - the budgets for advertising non-essential
    items, like soft drinks, exceed the budgets of many third-world
    nations.

    Only in America - do people buy domestic brand tires, because
    they want to "buy American," and install them on their imported
    cars.

    Only in America - are the least useful professions (professional
    athletes, movie actors & entertainers) paid so disproportionally
    much compared to people with normal jobs.
