    I’ll have to correct you
    Only 50%+1 of us in Argentina are Chickens*

    *Chickens being the loving nickname for the supporters of River Plate, without discussion, the best Football team in South America, if not the world and maybe the universe..............

    After all I'm mainly dealing with Argentines, who apparently don't have a word in their language for humility - “ ... and maybe the universe” :-)
