What Americans Really Think of the British

  Was brought home to me startlingly this morning.
  The story about the deadly Sainsbury's banana spiders has hit the American news (that's globalisation) in a flurry of shrieks and "yeeeugh!!!"s.
  The comments spawned a lurid cauldron of debate, with people sharing their spider/centipede/lizard/snake horror stories and much discussion on the wisdom of biting into a banana which had mold (sic) on the peel. Then someone pointed out: "In Socialist England you consume whatever you can get".
