The difference between me and you, take 2

Here's another thing that is clearly different from here (the UK) to there (wherever you are): the sporting chants. Sorry, this is my obvious topic of choice as the footie is on (2, 5, and 8, y'all -- 2, 5, and 8). People, please understand that this is the biggest sporting event in the world -- even bigger than the World Series. Amazingly, they allow teams from other countries in this crazy competition they call the World Cup. In the States, you have this chant and a variations of it, such as the second one.

But this is what it sounds like over here -- a chant of the name of England's most popular player, Wayne Rooney:

This is now become my chant of choice, as it has huge comedy value and can be applicable to any name. Go ahead, try. Loudly.
