Bernard Shaw said that America and England were two great nations sepa¬rated by the same language.
"I speak four languages," proudly boasted the door man of a hotel in Rome to an American guest. "Yes, four — Italian, French, English, and American."
"But English and American are the same," pro¬tested the guest. "Not at all," replied the man. "If an English¬man should come up now, 1 should talk like this: 'Oh, I say, what extraordinarily shocking weather we're having! I dare say there'll be a bit of it ahead.' But when you came up I was just getting ready to say: 'For the love o' Mike! Some day, ain't it? Guess this is the second flood, al! right.'"
