Don't know you have seen this on your side of the pond, but I just saw this on the air for the first time:

I don't think I'm alone in saying we Brits don't really get Dr Seuss. It doesn't mean a lot to most of us

When you say you don't get Dr. Seuss, does that mean you don't understand him, or don't get a lot of his books there?

He means that we don't understand, it's a phrase we use over here...

"I don't get it"  = I don't understand it

I would tend to agree, I don't reallyget it either, i mean I've had an awareness of Dr. Seuss but I really couldn't say anything about it at all.  So the uproar in the comments for that commercial on YouTube really is lost on me since I don't know anything about "lorax".

Sorry

We also say "I don't get it" here, but it was the context in which it was said that I was unclear about.

I guess it's a US thing for Dr. Seuss.

Yes, I meant its not a cultural thing over here. That or I had a deprived childhood.

They're not too bad as adverts. Can't beat the slot car ad for the first 3 though.
