    In France it's called "Click & Collect".
    Obvious cultural difference.

    Yep, it has led to some, err.....amazing inventions like "handy" - and just don't get started with the meaning of "bodybag" in Germany. Thank you, advertisers!

    That's nothing. In the middle east one guy wrote down ten sentences 2000 years ago and I get several of them repeated to me with mind numbing regularity.

    Farty Owls? As the series progressed, each episode's opening shot of the Fawlty Towers hotel sign shows rearranged and misplaced letters. Variations include: Watery Fowls (with a kid seen adjusting it), Farty Tower, Flay Otters, Fatty Owls, Warty Towels, Flowery Twats and Farty Towels.

    And his (at the time soon to be ex) wife Connie Booth who co-wrote it. The casting throughout was brilliant as well.
