When I was young, my english teacher (he was scottish) when someone asked him the difference between english and american, simply said laughing

"Oh not much you have to care for - simply imagine me with a potato in the mouth while speaking, that's american"

I cannot figure out at the time, but after meeting many americans and british people in my life and watching some UK/USA films with the original soundtrack, I can say the statement fits pretty well to my perception...
I always panic when I have to phone an american for job-related stuff
