Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha...ahem...not my opinion, of course...

From the new Rough Guide travel guide for England:

"The writers confess to bafflement over the quirky English, concluding that of the 200 countries the guide reviews there is none 'so fascinating, beautiful and culturally diverse yet as insular, self-important and irritating as England'."

"The combination of a shoot-from-the-hip mentality with laissez-faire capitalism and religious fervor can make the USA maddening at times, even to its own residents."

Maddening...irritating... we're the same! (although I think the English are a teeny bit more important).
