Not by John Cleese and, yes, about six yeard old now, but still quite, quite amusing.
Always_a_Civvy said:I like the idea a lot. We could set up various homelands for various minorities in the States giving them their own independent nations with agricultural land, sea and their own government and use Texas as a giant penal colony. We could imbue their service volunteers with our traditions and customs whilst getting their excellent equipment. Rosie could become Governess-General wearing her red Prada thigh length boots and the PO Stoker could become Chancellor of the Exchequor - given his propensity to win loads-a-money.

I have a better chance of sprouting antlers than you do of taking this country away from us. So I propose this compromise:
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have announced their plans to get married in England in November (18th, I believe).
You keep them, and in return we'll give you, say....Rhode Island, which we're not currently using, and I'll throw in a case of Red Bull, which tastes like hydraulic fluid, but makes a dandy lawnmower cleaning solvent.
Ros, you can have George Clooney, if you'll make him shut up and go away.
RoofRat said:Erm,,,,, how can you take something back that didn't belong to us in the first place?
Anybody remember the Native Americans? Mohawks, Mandan, Apache,Sioux,Cherokee,Iroquois nations?
Besides given the Choice, I'd rather be allied with the Yanks (politically) than the, so called European Allies! Or better still lets go back to the Commonwealth as it was before being conned by Grocer Heath.
