Diet Coke with your fries?

Since my computer is “unhooked” and I can’t post pictures of all the exciting things that are happening in our lives (and there actually is a lot going on right now!), I thought I’d post this cute e-mail that I received: (..hope you haven't read this one too many times before)

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.
…do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke.
…do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
…do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
…do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight
…do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
…do we have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

EVER WONDER...
Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Why you never see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
Why "abbreviated" is such a long word?
Why doctors call what they do "practice"?
Why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why the man who invests all your money is called a broker?
Why the time of day with the slowest traffic is called rush hour?
Why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes?
Why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Also,
…You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Finally,
…If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

only in America do you e-mail your co-woker who is sitting next to you to see if they want to go out to lunch instead of just verbally asking them...
we're so lazy!
