    You really ignored N_LaRUE's post which stated exactly the same as I did, and he's a native English speaker. Just for your information, your German is worse than your English ;-)
    All praises to my Master who taught me and inspired me to post here, Sir Chregu (PhD holder of English Communication, awarded by Sir Martin of England, who dresses up like a mutant and plays random guitars) :p

    I picked up a candy bar at a British import store here called 'Yorkie'. It said on the wrapper, "Do not feed the birds."
    Yeah, it's a bad advertising campaign at the moment. It's a claim that Yorkie's are a 'mans' chocolate bar. It's meant as 'togue in cheek' but it's got some people rilled up about it.

    It's not really offensive in US. I'm not aware of any women who have any issues with the term 'chick flick'.
    Same here, i haven't heard anybody who was offended when somebody heard the term 'Chick flick'

    I have a Windows Phone app called Ask Ziggy. It was a personal assistant, but I don't think it's available anymore in the Store.

    It is from an Australian developer.

    The voice options are: 'Sheila' or 'Bloke'.

    I'm not saying all people find it offensive but there are those who do and personally I never liked the term. It is usually said in a deragtory manner, including term 'chick flick'.

    That would cause quite a scare.
    That reminds me of Pet Semetery by Stephen King.

    Australia doesn't use 'chick', it's North American. Though with the increase of loving everything American in Oz I wouldn't be surprised if the slang becomes more popular. Though, 'chick' won't probably be one of the common ones. :P
    Halloween is yet an another thing that's North American that is loved in Australia, i don't have anything to do with Halloween.

    Yeah because of the size of the chunks they had an ad campaign running for a while with the strapline "not for girls".

    Yeah that's the 'typical' terms used. However, 'bird' is used quite a bit still. Similairly how they use 'chick' in the US.

    Talking about pet cloning, chocolate bars, animals and the meaning of 'chick flick' and every word associated with it is getting weird.

    Halloween is actually pagan/christian so mainly originally European to celebrate all hallows eve. Was originally a festival to remember the dead much like the Mexican day of the dead. Somehow its gotten twisted in popular culture to what it is now.

    I wouldn't clone my pet, it won't be the same at all character wise, although it will look the same. I like chocolate, but I don't eat chocolate regularly, I prefer ice cream if I want to eat something sweet. I think there's a difference between talking about a chick flick in general, or calling a specific woman with whom you have professional relations a chick.

    Um... yes it's popular. It's typically fed to young Aussies. Whether it's good depends on your taste buds. I've gotten to like it personally. I even 'miss' it when I travel.

    You'd have a baby with the same DNA as your girlfriend. Probably developing age related diseases very early, as you'd have to take the aged DNA from your girlfriend to clone her.
