in "the sniffing accountant" when J, G, K & E are discussing the trip of their accountantant to SouthAmerica, they "impune" a continent...

mmh you americans may not know it because you're so egocentrical, but SouthAmerica it's not a continent, not even a country, it's just the southern part of America (the continent, not USA)

Some countries that are in southamerica are argentina, brazil, uruguay, ecuador, chile, etc.

i just hope you already knew that, because the seinfeld writers didn't.

South America is a continent. A continent doesn't have to be surrounded by water. You are misinformed.

Africa, South America, North America, Europe, Antarctica, Asia, and Australia are the seven continents.

HAHA! It is so a continent, idiot. Funny how he's trying to show Americans as being ignorant and then blatantly makes a fool of himself with such an obvious mistake...Just kinda ironic is all.

Here's more homework Jay -

When you get through looking up "continent" in the dictionary, flip forward a few pages and you'll find a magical little word spelled I-M-P-U-G-N.

Unless you were referring to something from a medical dictionary?

... and "egocentrical" is not a word. Egocentric would've done just fine.

Isn't ironic bad? Maybe something is ironic, then you de-ironic it?

I would have set you up for it, Jimmy, but someone had to change the line.
You see? That's why I hate writing with a large group of people. Because everyone puts in their ideas and it all gets homogenized. "Ironic" is the line. Ironic!!!

ok, you need to know 2 things:

1.- im mexican so my english writing won't be perfect

2.- I made a little research and i found out that the difference between our cultures (mexican and american) have completly different concepts about the number and names of continents, i don't exaclty know the reason but here in Mexico we classify as continent America (from Canada to Argentina), Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania (the Australia zone) and Antartica.. so there 6 continents

would anyone tell me why do you separate America into 2 continents (North and South) and which countries conform each continent?

this continent thing can be seen in the 2 ways we're arguing:

Continent: one of the six or sevengreat divisions of land on the globe

Moses smell the Roses...

Isn't there some running rule about not completeing lines one for the next on your precious site?

Did you really want to do the whole bit?

God forbid someone writes something original.

Here you go guys, so I don't detract from your fun...

You know, that we've come so far as a people, that we have unity as a continent, but we miss the little things, like self-identity, the niceties...

(okay, here's your big opening, let's see how funny it is when you write it...)

Crespi- This whole continent thing is getting a little out of hand. All I know is that Mr. Stoops (my 5th grade teacher) taught us about the seven (7) continents and if he said it, it's got to be true! By the way, are there by any chance any houses to rent in Mexico?

Smuckers- That's a nasty cough you got there, you should get that checked out...

Gendison- What does ironic mean?

Jimmy- What's a 'holic'?

Me- Ahhh, a nice bowl of mulligatawny! Razz

Hmmm, there's like a thousand ways to go here... Rolling Eyes


Possible answers to Jay's question:

1) City? I thought Mexico is a city.
2) Where? Tuscana!
3) Same street where the Maestro stays.
4) Department? Sure I'll take 1 Mexican department!

Just pick one...
