    With a nod to CHL Chris for the idea. ;)

    Let's have it out here. Screw the rest of the world. Everyone else ( other than Davy's home country, our friends down in Australia, Argentina and Venezuela ) are a bunch of wannabe-also-rans. :D

    So, what are your choices for the most American of Everything?! Soap, burger, car, suit, shoe, pistol, long gun, toothpaste - let's hash it out here and hand out some official FTF Choice Awards!

    Lava. Now THERE is an American soap. It doesn't take any stink or stain from ANYTHING and will remove the top two layers of epidermis in the event of a surface burn. :eek:

    Brilliant.

    The HAMBURGER is an AMERICAN invention, no matter what those Krauts say (and I AM one, so I can say that).

    Most American Aircraft:

    This was a tough one. My mind first went to the P-51 Mustang. An icon of American ingenuity. But then it's been flown by dozens of other countries as well, so I ruled it out.

    Then I thought of the Piper Cub. The ubiquitous symbol of American general aviation. But although it has been used outside the US for years, I doubt there are too many who really recognize the importance of this little airplane.

    So I had to settle on an airframe that is uniquely American, something only America has, something that is the symbol of American power, the longest serving aircraft in the American arsenal, and one hell of a warrior...

    The B-52 Stratofortress

    I apologize Reinhard, you have not been here long enough for me to learn enough about you to avoid foot in mouth excluding you.

    Sincerest Apologies and you are welcome here in my US State anytime you can make it. :cool:
