Don't blame you one bit. It's too Unamerican for me. The current Vice President is Michael Pence, the former governor of Indiana.

Which reminds me of my favourite New Zealand joke (we make New Zealand jokes in Oz like Americans make Mexican jokes).

An Aussie sees some graffiti on the wall in the Gents loo at Auckland Airport that says "Australia sucks". Offended by it, the Aussie pulls out a permanent marker from his briefcase and underneath it, he writes "New Zealand five!"

It is no longer politically correct to do Mexican jokes, according to my Wetback Humor Guodebook.

It seems to me we're repeating ourselves. Time for another game! Perhaps an "un" or a "re" game?

BTW, DISSUADE, to me, is knocking fuzzy leather.

This reminds me of a recent incident: I was repairing my decrepit lawn mower in the lean-to section of our old barn. I began to smell skunk, so stopped to see why. I looked to my left and found a skunk just an arm's length away, patiently waiting for me to remove my left foot from the entrance to its den. I am very glad we have courteous skunks around here!

This one reminds me of all the things I hate about American English pronunciation - I just don't get them??

AUNT - My mother's sister is not an insect (ANT), she should be my AWNT by the spelling, but in Australia and probably England (where the language oddly enough actually comes from) she is our ARNT

ALUMINIUM - Why do Americans think the 2nd "I" is silent - IT ISN'T

NUCLEAR - How the F... do Americans turn this into NUCULAR - it defies comprehension

OFF OF - You don't jump, or break OFF OF something, you simply jump or break OFF it. How did this even creep into American English and eventually become accepted as the norm, it makes zero sense grammatically??

There are many more but they're the 4 that really make my blood boil. Please excuse my rant, but I really would love to know how these came to be accepted as not only the norm, but accepted as "CORRECT"??

Ditto.
What about "Where are you at?" Isn't "Where are you?" sufficient?

Before my cataract surgery, I was blind without my glasses. Everything more than arm's length was a blur. I went outside to move the garbage cans to the sidewak. It had snowed and the driveway was the only cleared avenue to the street.
For some reason I left my glasses inside, so when I saw the neighbor's black cat it was as a blur coming toward me. I bent to give it a pat and saw the white strip when I was two feet away from touching a skunk. I froze and the critter ambled by just inches from my leg and disappeared down the road.
