A funny story I've tried to tell a funny story I heard not long ago with my own words: Two men are riding on the same train somewhere in the world, sitting in front of each other. After a short chat one of them asks: "Where are you from?" The other: "England. And you?" The first : "U.S.A.". After a while, the American says, joking: "You know, if you picked up England and put it over the U.S., you could make it fit into a Nevada corner!" And the Englishman, unperturbable: "Really? To what end, young man?". Is it grammatical and natural? Did I make mistakes?
