I like this particularly because I just finished reading Eric Weiner's "The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for Happiest Places in the World." Not the greatest book I've ever read but entertaining and occasionally thought provoking.
I was finishing the chapter on Great Britain as I waited for Dave at the airport and a few minutes before he arrived I read,
Watching Brits shed their inhibitions is like watching elephants mate. You know it happens, it must, but it's noisy as hell, and you can't help but wonder: is this something I really need to see?
I laughed hard. It's not "SO true!"... but as a generalization it's a little bit true :)
