Standing near the digital photo counter in an electronics McStore at one of the McMall's in Prague I overhear the following exchange between a reedy sales assistant with about seven words in total of English and a long lanky Brit with a plummy accent. The customer is comparing features.

"How, you know, what is the difference, really, if you see what I mean, I mean what am I getting for the extra one M-B? I mean to say, what is the difference between the 4 megapixel and the 5 megapixel? You see?"

[takes deep breath and squares shoulders]
....mmm....diff - er - ence....mmm...."
