"Who keeps the metric system down?"

So, it is not only the Simpsons that keep it down (and the United States) it is The Container Store that contains the inches, pounds, quarts, feet, miles and various other measurements that make no sense to someone that was brought up with the logical SI system smartly based on 10, and micro, milli, deci, kilo, mega, tera, etc. I love meters, grams, and liters!

(OK, running and ducking for cover now, because here comes the comments from the Americans about the superiority of 3/8 inches, pints, and square feet...)
