Hey, my first post wa son topic but others who didn't like my comments drgaged it off course...

 

Anyways, like I said, the article itself is humours in parts; but some people who are bigots will use it as 'fact' when arguing against the 'evils' of Amerikans.

Sorry, Mr. Mod, sir.

 

Personally, I believe we Americans are the greatest single culture/race of super beings, in the entire known world.

Can someone tell me what any of this has to do with Cleese?  At least the American baiting is related to the treatise, although it seems he meant the work to be humorous rather than biting.  This whole business now is related to nothing.  Let's try to keep it on track.

 

 

Eldar, old chap. Some might call it derailing, but I prefer to think of it as the natural evolution of an Off-Topic thread. I mean, isnt it a bit prepostrous of us to expect threads to stay On-Topic in Off-Topic?

 

 

As long as it doesnt get out of hand.

That's what you think! ...But what about Cleese and his warm beer? huh? If he can't convince Americans to drink warm beer, then what use is this thread? Ah, see what I mean?

Honestly, how anyone can take offense at Cleese's comments is beyond me. The whole thing is so wonderfully absurd to me that it's a pure joy to read. But then again, I'm a Python-fan, and absurdity is what Pythonesque humor is all about.

 

I love that he says there will be a questionnaire to see whether anyone noticed the change :p

 

Gee, now I'm thinking back to all the American/English bashing in "A Fish Called Wanda"...

 

Otto: "You know what the problem is with you English? You don't like winners..."

 

Leach: "Winners?"

 

Otto: "Yes. Winners!"

 

Leach: "Winners like... North Vietnam?"

 

Otto: "SHUT UP!! We did NOT lose Vietnam - it was a tie!!"

 

 

Hilarious... I recommend the film. And don't think it's all America bashing - there's plenty that goes the other way too ;)

 

 

EDIT: But I'd agree with Mr. Cleese about point 15 - it's driving me crazy too =]

This thread sucks donkey balls. Though you get some slack because of the Wanda-quote.

Oh, typo. You get cut of some slack. Sorry.

 

I love that movie. Especially the Otto scenes. And the concrete parts. ;)

Response from America #1

Response from America #2

 

I like the first one better:

9. We'll tell you who killed JFK when you apologize for "Teletubbies".
:luck: Remember that we are not to blame for the Teletubbies. We ourselves were the first victims of Teletubbism.

Give China credit for its gross incompetence. They've managed to burden themselves with stupid decisions in the past. They might have it in them to do it again.

am counting on the stupidity and incompetence in our guesstimate... otherwise, we woulda' said 10-15 years.

 

HA! Good Fun!

What happened when Russia became a superpower?

 

besides that scenario, while possible, isn't NEARLY as probable as the scared masses seem to believe.

Yeah. The great thing about the future is that nobody can predict it accurately - not even Volurn.
