    Virtually all hip-hop, rappy crappy music today. It all seems to be about the person singing the song and generally involves stating how great they are with the ladies and how big their bank balance is.

    Absolutely, its another rubbish Americanism that's sneaked into everyday so called English.

    I also can't stand people who scatter Gallicisms about, when there are perfectly good English words that say the same thing.

    And, how about our youngsters (and older thickos) saying 'innit' all the time?

    What about the fuckers who hog the outside lane, when the inside lane is perfectly clear, and won't shift to let you overtake? Do we shoot those mutant cock-jockeys too, or simply just torture them in the most sadistic way imaginable?

    In a Volvo? I bet he was wearing 'driving gloves' (and a somewhat 'pained' expression), too!

    I've also noticed in the past few years that the Americanism 'can I get' has replaced 'may I have' amongst the under thirty's.
