I was shocked, shocked I tell you when I found out one of my American girlfriends rooted for the local baseball team.

I simply had not imagined that of her.

And then there was the discussion we had in some small Texan town when we discovered that the restaurant where we were having lunch had hush puppies on the menu. We had no idea what these could be. I was pretty sure that they were some kind of seafood. Right.

Then there was that whole "Outback Steakhouse" thing, full of food supposedly eaten in Oz. A "Bloomin' Onion"?????
