Only in America, or not?

A freind just sent me some Only In America jokes, and I started wondering if those sorts of things really happen Only In America, meaning The US and Canada. I really have my doubts, but then every country probably does have some interesting things that maybe don't happen everywhere or anywhere else. For example, I read that the favorite pizza topping in Aussey land is scrambled eggs, while here it is pepperoni. So how about posting about the things that you think are Only In Wherever You Are From. And now the jokes.

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.
