The basic difference

between the Americans (320 million)
and the British (70 million) -
according to the raconteur David Sedaris -
is that if the next-door neighbour acquires a big posh car,
an American will want to get one at least as big,
while a British person will want the neighbour to crash it,
or at the very least have it repossessed by the bank.

And what about the Irish?

I think we now tend towards the American attitude, but up to the Time of the Stuffed Tiger (stuffed with credit cards and debt) we would probably not have reacted beyond asking "I wonder where they got their money from ? Probably an uncle or a cousin who died in America."
