I'd agree with almost all of those.

Do you have any specific reasons for your entries? For instance, why the Rhode Island clam chowder, rather than the more generic New England clam chowder? Is there a difference worth noting?

Happy 4th to you and yours, Tillerman!

New England clam chowder is creamy. Rhode Island clam chowder is clear.

Happy 4th to you and yours, Mitch.

??? Seriously? Rhode Island clam chowder is clear? I didn't know that!

I don't even remember that from when we lived in north-eastern Connecticut back in the early 1970s. I just recall the cream-based version from New England, and the tomato-based version from further south.

Most Aussies would also have Barrack Obama in that list. Maybe leave out the pancakes :)

As a UK resident I recognise No. 26 as the best traffic regulation worldwide - I think it need aits own unique Photograph!

Some American habits might not work well in other countries. You probably don't want bison roaming free in the Cotswolds either.

Really the current President should be on the list but I decided to steer away from politicians so as not to stir up any heavy feedback. This is meant to be a bit of fun.
