He's ignorant like me & a lot of Brits, on a TV quiz, a contestant was asked how many states, he replied 51, thinking that the 51th is Hawaii.

Can I ask a question to all you brits over there, Do they make you Sing some sort of national pledge thing to your flag?
Nope. No one even knows our national anthem.

We have even gone as far as banning our own flag! Incase it offends anyone!

We turn on the TV and see MTV with the stars and the stripes, cnn etc. We are an extension of the US. The US's national anthem tune is more widely known here than our own

Whoops, only just spotted that

Well, if you choose to count Iraq as the 51st, I'm right in calling the UK the 52nd...

I'm getting pretty sick of my country now, maybe I'll move to France...

(yeh right)

Political Correctness has indeed gone totally insane. But the thing is, most of the stuff that have been banned doesn't even offend anyone...

We're not even allowed to call christmas lights christmas lights anymore, we have to call them 'holiday lights' incase it offends the muslims.

I was in the food trade from the mid-forties right up to the seventies, yes, I'm that old, look at my profile, the gollies were on Robertson's jam & marmalade jars, you peeled them off, sent about twenty away, & got a smart little enamel badge, they then brought in various different badges to choose from, gollies playing cricket & football, playing various musical instruments, the detail was very good, bearing in mind they were only about an inch high.
On a recent "Cash in the attic" a woman put up a gollywog ashtray & soft toy, neither sold, & I understand that doll manufacturers have to make a percentage of black dolls.

I remember I was about 5 when they stopped giving them out and was angry becuase I'd collected so many damn tokens :P If you ever watch the adverts on ITV on saturday morning for every group of 4 or more fictional characters/cartoons there must be at least 1 non white character.

I dont wanna have to use this whole politally correct bullshit, im not going to call them homosexuals, That. is. too. long. to. say. They are fags.
As much as thats all offensive, i laughed, maybe its because im tried *shurg* ... but why thank you i needed a laugh or two.

On one of those matters(well you get what i mean i hope)...
Does that mean i can call religious freaks, bible bashers and you could say and call them all the STEREOTYPES ....just that?
..Because Christians is far to long for me too
Or Xtians is good too...
