    American school students may not measure up with all of the other students in other countries...but it is nice to know that our parents do.

    Love, love love it! Has anyone ever watched Summer Heights High on HBO? Let me tell ya - the Australian education system is just as bizarre and ridiculous as our American system. That show is hilarious.

    Schools here need to start having similar messages on their answering machines! Can you imagine the fires that would be lit under some students' you-know-whats to kick it into high gear?

    Proves the point that Kids are kids the world over... and parents are parents the world over. It's bound to happen that all the nations of the "Anglosphere" will seem incredibly familiar.

    But as Catherine Tate would say dressed up as a young chav...

    "Am I bovvered?"
