maybe we found a reason to improve on some of these things...

maybe others were originally out of 200-year old revolutionary spite. :-D

Ahhh our funny colonial cousins and their curious colloquialisms.

We are happy for you to use our language, buy why do you insist on abusing it ?

Tis your own fault you know, if you had just kept drinking tea for a few more years we could have taught you to spell correctly, we may have even had time to teach you the real rules to sports so you wouldn't have to make up silly ones :smt019

English is English in America because in the UK they separate it into dialect, whereas we don't. And honestly, most people don't think about Australia (people as a whole are stupid, sorry Aussies :? ).
Cell is short for cellular phone, whereas a mobile is that dangly piece of junk that hangs above a crib.
Scones are a type of (American) biscuit, therefore it would be idiotic to call all biscuits scones.
Jam and jelly are completely different.
Mum means to keep silent (ie: "Mum's the word"). Mom only has one meaning. America wins again. [-(

It's not our fault you guys have a hard-on for the U, and you like to flop "er" into "re" when, phonetically speaking, we're doing it right.

We made up our own sports as a form of protest. Baseball > Cricket and American Football > Soccer. At least we made them less boring.
