    I would like to take the opportunity presented by the 4th of July to offer the renegade colony the following terms:

    You will:

    -pay us back taxes and interest for the Boston Tea Party
    -recognise Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as your Head of State
    -change your name to Her Majesty's Protectorate of North America Minus Canada
    -give me free tickets to the Patriots' games

    We will:
    -not send in the Redcoats (they have new, improved, muskets and a darker red which really blends in with the surroundings)
    -teach you English
    -teach you Cricket and all of its nuances

    God Save our gracious Queen
    Long live our noble Queen
    God Save the Queen

    Send her victorious
    Happy and glorious
    Long to reign over us

    GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!

    Seriously, have a really good Independence Day, everyone! Miss Gomezcat also says the same.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    In all seriousness, those new red coats are also waterproof, windproof and NEM-resistant. Watch out for them.

    hehhe.. Funny post but my interest is to watch the idiots come out of the wood works and complain that this should be in the general forum.. You know, the people with 2k posts :)

    We're up to King George II here ourselves. Not sure it would make that much of a difference.

    But while we're on the subject:

    1) Read the letters in "Aluminum." Sound it out. There is only one "i."
    2) The broad "A" where a hard "A" belongs is annoying, especially in the word "wrath," which is not meant to sound like the last name of an American writer.
    3) Similarly, "Sloth" does not rhyme with "oath." Otherwise it would be "sloath."
    4) When pronouncing words from Spanish, do not suddenly become American, and inexplicably start using the hard "A" where the broad "A" belongs, like in Macho or Taco. I am convinced that this is the only place you will use this pronunciation of "a", and that you do it on purpose, to make Latinos believe you are American and cannot pronounce their broad "a".
    5) When pronouncing the fast food chain name "MacDonalds," the first vowel is very, very brief.
    6) About saving your butts from a variety of Germans: You're welcome. And don't try to deny it, you couldn't even beat the French dependably.

    Fondly,

    PFnV

    I believe that would be a violation of the Geneva Convention.

    Nice retort. You're first against the wall when Her Maj's force land for your cheekiness though, mate! :D

    1) "Hrmph!" is my answer to 1-3. :mad: :p
    4) I use the hard A because I'm from Northern England. So, I say glass instead of glahss. I also use the guttural, German style U. So, I say c"oo"p instead of "cap" (for the word "cup") The Latinos should speak English, anyway (DUCK!).
    5) We DO pronounce it briefly. I just tested Miss Gcat by asking her the name of a Hamburger store beginning with M.
    6) I begrudgingly accept that you had a role in WWII, albeit two years later than we would have wanted. Thanks all the same. :D

    Re: HRH's forces landing - If I happen to be in the Malvinas, I'll be very afraid.

    7) Usually, place names are singular. So, you can say "The Patriots have beaten Miami," but it's "New England has beaten Miami."

    I understand the Dutch speak the language, perhaps they'll give lessons (with or without a loaner monarchy.)

    Cheers, Mate!

    PS, my mom was from Airstrip One, Liverpool to be exact -- so it's all in good fun.

    And about that "better late than never" and "thanks all the same" stuff:

    We look at your brief and desperate attempts to protect yourselves as a bit like a child with the training wheels just off the bike. We don't want to see you fall and hurt yourselves, but if we don't give you a bit of time on your own in the beginning, well, you'll never really learn. So you see, now you're fully independent, and able to give Argentina a bloody nose all on your own.

    (Thanks for doing as told in the Mideast, by the way...even if you are just watching the people who wanted us there.)

    Happy Firth of Fourth of July!

    And one more thing. A potato chip[/i] is the crunchy thing. A "crisp" is a leadoff batter for the Sox. And a "tin" is now usually made of aluminum, which we've already discussed (one "i" regardless of what Wikipedia says, and by the way, the Cornish guy probably never thought he was English in the first place.)

    Actually, PFnV, we're the heretics on this one: almost everyone else in the world calls it aluminium; the American Chemical Society at some point decided that "aluminum" is how everyone here calls it, so we might as well stick with it. [On the flip side, IUPAC, the people who decide what elements should be called, did agree with us that it's sulfur, not sulphur.]

    Heretics, shmeritics. How many "i"s do you see in that word?

    If everybody else in the world jumped off London Bridge, would you? Well you'd still land in the Arizona desert. Or New Mexico. Somewhere, I forget.

    I do thank our visitors from across the pond, but beg to differ regarding the War of 1812; had the British done a little better in that war, well, they'd be the ones having to man the pumps in the 9th Ward last summer. Or, in the immortal words of historian Johnny Horton:

    In 1814 we took a little trip
    Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
    We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
    And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

    [Chorus:]
    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin.
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
    We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

    We looked down the river and we see'd the British come.
    And there must have been a hundred of'em beatin' on the drum.
    They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring.
    We stood by our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

    [Chorus]

    Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise
    If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eye
    We held our fire 'til we see'd their faces well.
    Then we opened up with squirrel guns and really gave 'em ... well

    [Chorus]

    Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.**

    We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down.
    So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
    We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind
    And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind.

    [Chorus]

    Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.**

    Bah, humbug!

    Well, you guys won't respond to compliments (see General Talk) so a little gentle criticism doesn't come amiss.
