English comedian John Cleese, of Monty Python fame, was asked to describe
the difference between British and American people. In reply Cleese said
that there were three basic differences from the British viewpoint:
1. "We speak English and you don't."
2. "When we hold a World Championship for a particular sport, we invite
teams from other countries to play, as well."
3. "When you meet the head of state in Great Britain, you only have to go
down on one knee."
