    I'll answer straight (for once): movers or moving company.

    Americans will give you the confused dog look if you say anything remotely like "removals company."

    If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

      Weird thing is, plenty psychoschwango brain de-weeviler types build their copy stories around precisely this kinda language.

      "Feel your stresses melt away with the revolutionary Squirrel Blitz happiness program. Here's confidence backed by science ... the smiling face you always knew was yours."

      Course, in the small print we discover alla the unappealin' details don't make this offah sound too sweet -- like the lawyer-speak zillion page contract says (in layman's terms) "if'n you don't bend to our will 24/7, we reserve the right to sell your boobies to unspecified pig farms in unspecified countries as FEED." But who reads the frickin' small print evah?

        I was hoping that the blue was a cloaked bitly link going to a site with dancing, happy squirrels, but when l tried to click, nada.

        But l got a much needed laugh from the fine print.

    That is a bit like saying when you drive into a US Gas station, and are ready to pay, they ask you for the number and what you got and you say, l filled up with the gas and they ask, was that gas or gas sir, and you say Gas!

    Then walk out to your car, and make the mistake that the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car again.
