Which makes the use of the phrase all that more interesting.. in a
very off-topic sort of way.  Does US consumer culture have a
...monopoly... on widely adopted popular culture?  It makes me a
little sad to think that it might. I was hoping interacting with a
global community, even if we are doing it in Englishese, I'd get a
chance to vacuum up some useful, badly translated and out-of-context
colloquial phrases from other cultures.
