Limeys Going Paranoid Like Crazy!

First it was the loss of Empire.

Then it was the loss of people.

Then it was the loss of good taste, with Russell Brand.

Now it's all a loss of sanity over there as they see enemies everywhere.

You can't blame them however. 60 million Brits (together with africans, subcontinental indians, bengalis, pakistanis, poles, etc etc) on an island the size of your uncle's farm and no Barnes & Noble - well it can't be that great a place to live.

Am I allowed to say "Limey"? If I'm not, I send the Queen's apologies. VERY very sorry.

Re: Limeys Going Paranoid Like Crazy!

There's a big Barnes & Noble in Cambridge. Or maybe it was a Borders. Does it matter?

BTW, the 60 million counts "subcontinental Indians" and Poles...the UK census isn't only for WASPs.

Re: Limeys Going Paranoid Like Crazy!

I expected this thread to be about the World Cup. At Precinct in Union Square, the crowd cheered U-S-A as if we had won rather than just drawn.

The UK doesn't need Borders or Barnes & Noble. They have WH Smith and Waterstones. (We used to have Waterstones too, in the Exeter Street Theatre building.)

Re: Limeys Going Paranoid Like Crazy!

There's a Borders in Oxford. Utter rubbish set against the almighty Blackwell's.

Also, Boston would be a much cooler city if Waterstones were still around.

Don't make me tell Uncle Rice you're still being the nail sticking out that needs to be hammered down.

Anyway BM, all this internet acronym talk is makin' me mighty hungry.

Re: Limeys Going Paranoid Like Crazy!

Post #6 and #8 will tell you why the response. BM has a problem with the USA? Anway, the thread is about the paranoia in the UK press. You should have seen the reaction to Helen Mirren's denunciation of BP on Letterman. Most UKers have said she should be ashamed, give up her honors and medals, and never come back to the UK.

Read what happened. and read some of the comments of the disgruntled.

Yes. Limeys are going crazy over this. And unfortunately BM seems to be too, with his "STFU" cant. BM, I GET IT ALREADY.

So I grant thee special honor for your special post "STFU" Mr Manchurian.
