The Talking With Americans Game

To win, all you need to do is engage some Americans in polite conversation, then ask them which part of Canada they're from before they ask you if you're from Australia.

Sounds dead simple, but I'm 3–0 down at the moment.

  1. My favourite is to comment to an Australian that you didn't realise he wasn't English!! oh what fun we have!

  2. You make the assumption that it is possible to have a polite conversation with an American.

  3. Oh, no, the latest Americans were very polite: they started off by quoting from The Blues Brothers, so we hit it off immediately.

  4. I'm off to New Orleans & up to Chicago for the blues festival in May, so I will let you know. I hear that in some of the southern states they still have strange fruit in the trees!

  5. I was once quite impressed by an American waitress who, in an effort to boost her tip, engaged us in coversation and said shortly "Hey, you guys are from Europe. Right?". We were both surprised and impressed until she rather spoiled the effect with "Is that Europe England or Europe Australia"?
