Only In America...

I got this in an e-mail and think it cute enough to pass on!

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 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!

Why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

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

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
