  1. Penny:
    Why do a large number of Americans call the one-cent coin a penny? We’re dealing with dollars and cents, not pounds and pence, people! How about we call it a “cenny”, instead? Then we can all spend a cenny – perfect.
  2. The five-second rule:
    This week I learnt about the five-second rule.  Really, America?! You mucky pups!
  3. A hoedown:
    A hoedown in no way involves getting down with hoes – turned out my Pimp Daddy costume was terribly inappropriate. In fact, a hoedown is just a Céilidh with less skipping and fewer Gay Gordons.
