Perhaps there should also be an English-Australian Dictionary - referring to the main page reference the unpleasant consequences of misunderstanding Durex.
- They do sell Durex condoms in Australia now ;-) What I want is an Australian-American dictionary, so I can put "Ey dingeau eyt my beybie". - David Gerard 15:23, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)

- See this page for more information. And you probably should check Wikipedia for this info, anyway. --stillwaters/Talk 00:14, 22 Oct 2005 (UTC)
what to do with a US gal???
This article misses one of the more important differences, that "a billion gallons" doesn't mean the same to speakers of American as it does to English speakers. A proper gallon is 4.5 litres, not 3.8 liters, and it's a bloody pity that America has yet to grasp the concept. Rather confusing when converting petrol pump prices! --Carlb 05:22, 6 Jan 2006 (UTC)
- Also note the differences between a proper billion and an american billion :-) --The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and bars UGM [email protected] (Petition) 11:25, 6 Jan 2006 (UTC)
It ought to be changed to British-American
I was thinking British-English... Then it matches the format of American-English. There's some back asswards stuff that needs fixed too... I'll take a serious look at it and see what can be done to clean it up. Anyone else watching this page? – Mahroww a.k.a. 04:12, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
- The joke is that American is not proper English. To change it would ruin the joke. Ral315 17:30, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

- Besdies, that's the joke of this article's counterpart. In this article, it's the other way around. Pehaps instead of British-American and American-British, how about English-American and English-British? That one is decidedly more pointed, and has both articles claiming one version is proper and the other is silly foreign junk. --Nintendorulez | talk 23:01, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
- The other article IS silly junk. It's whore-ible, it don't make fun of American spellin', it just insults American n'telligence. Fixit, Gaddamitt. 220.127.116.11 17:42, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
