One of my absolute favourite routines ever; I think I linked to it on another recent thread. The timing and language and delivery are perfect.

Just remind Johnny Foreigner that until 1776 - a mere clock-tick for English chaps some of whose families have lived in the same places since the Dark Ages – we owned their country.
And we want our wet tea back.

You have reminded me of the days when I used to eat at the "Cheers" bar in Detroit Airport, rather than take the meal that Northwest offered en route to Gatwick. I used to have one of their "Norm size" glasses of beer (usually Sam Adams) but can't recall how big they were. I suspect 32ozs.
