They aren’t real, they’re people in costumes (okay, occasionally they are actual animals).

Did you think it was made up by Hollywood?

Honestly I never knew that coriander was another name for cilantro. Though growing up in Hawaii (where we had lots of Asian foods but not that much Mexican), we always called it Chinese parsley.

I love this one. What we call a “biscuit” and what the “gravy” we put on it actually is is so far from his comprehension that he should probably go back to Fortnite.

By the way kid, I know what a fortnight is and I went to the effort to learn enough British English to understand Monty Python jokes, so meet me half way.

He should probably avoid Canada where they put gravy on prime rib.

Well this Canadian sure doesn't do that, ick! But we do have that poutine shit (again, ick!), so many Canadians sure like their gravy.

I thought every country's bathrooms had outlets. Seriously? Every one that I've been to has.

I thought so too and yes, every foreign country I've been to has one. They might be differences in the outlets themselves, but I've always seen one in a bathroom. Just goes to show how stupid these things are. Welcome to the internet, I suppose.

No shit. I am starting to think that the real reason MAD magazine is ceasing publication is that their writers can't compete with reality.
