Dear Mr. Cleese,

Might I have the temerity to suggest that your list of no less than -sixteen- highly detailed and lengthy points is considerably too long for the comprehension of the average colonial, given the collapse of the educational system?

And there were no pictures.

Herewith three points:

1. We only do -seven- points in all of our self-help and educational materials (e.g. the seven habits of highly successful bartenders, seven rules for orgasm, and so on.)

1.1. Your writing style is excessively wordy for we illiterates. Might I suggest that you seem to be inebriated by the exuberance of your own verbosity?

2. Moreover and henceforth, your points must be described in words which do not average more than two syllables.

3. And there should be an audio version for playing in our crappy American cars by the vast majority of us who cannot read and must learn in soundbites in between episodes of road rage.

As always your humble servant,

--Philip Aloysius Throckmorton Coates, Esquire and Plenipotentiary Flatulentious, son of the Duke of Earl

I couldn't stop laughing. Brilliant joke. I almost wish it were true. I'm a Brit, but I live in the US, and the grammar drives me absolutely bonkers. I also wish people would stop saying "trash cans" and start saying "rubbish bins," and a "rubber" is NOT a condom, but it IS an ERASER. Think of all the poor British kids who just moved and need an eraser so ask for a "rubber" in class, before they realize the difference. It is NOT one of my fondest memories of my first day in Junior High... OH... And a Jumper is a sweater, not some kind of dress. LOL
