We were practicing making generalizations - Not many Japanese people drive to work; Some Americans own guns; Most British women quit work after marriage.

Its an easy lesson to teach and quite practical for free conversation. It has also proved to hold my favourite moment thus far. See that comment about British women above? Well, apparently 3 students have recently misread it as:

"Most British women not QUITE work after marriage."
