    Very amusing Udet. Surely, George Bush must go down as the most lampooned President in living memory?

    While on the subject of American delicacies, what exactly is a "peanut butter and JELLY" sandwich? Over here, jelly is a product of boiling water, flavour and gelatine (alum?) which produces a 'ballistic jelly' like substance that is added to ice cream, fruit salad, etc, to make a desert. It's also an ingredient in an alchohol based dessert called 'trifle'. I can't imagine it on a sandwich.

    Or, does 'jelly' equate to 'jam' in the U.S.?

    Jelly very similar to jam. Jam has bits of the fruit in it - such as strawberry or marmalade. Jelly is the same but without the fruit bits and more like a Jello consistancy.

    I love Rhubarb jam / jelly.

    Thanks for the condiment update Chris! They tried to market a peanut butter/'jelly' spread, contained in one jar, in a sort of 'swirl' pattern, many years ago - didn't last long in the land of Vegemite!

    Try a bit of Fluff ?!...:D

    "Fluff" is aussie slang for a woman. To be precise, (Macquarie Dictionary)...

    "...a girl, especially one who is superficially attractive." ​
