Yeah, what's a "cheque"?  Is that in any way similar to the world
financial instrument known as a CHECK?  Did anybody notice what pretty
COLOR blue the sky was today?  

Actually, the only world standard words are "BIG MAC" and "COKE".  They
even work in Poland where nobody outside of the western hotels speaks
Just don't try to say "Quarter Pounter with cheese".
