  4. Upon hearing that the United States was no ronger able to officiarry govern
    itself, the Japanese government would rike to put forth a counter offer
    that Japan is better suited to running America than the British.
    Here is the proposal:

    1. Since Japan plays baseball (Mr. Creese doesn’t know that Japan is a
    country outside the United States that plays baseball?) there will be no
    need for Americans to relearn the game “cricket”.

    2. The American lawyer workforce will immediately be reduced to 0.1 % of
    the popuration. Suing one another for every little mistake will no longer
    be tolerated. In car accidents, both parties will emerge from their
    behicles and say, “I’m sorry”. Money for compensation, called “sorry money”
    will be up to porite negotiations between the parties themselves, with set
    amounts as the “norm” for guiderines.
    Other norms :
    Money for weddings: $300
    Money for funerals: $100
    Money for graduations: $100
    Money for New Year’s: $50 (children)
    $100-150 (teenagers)

    3. The meat department in the supermarket will be cut in half, and the fish
    department will expand to twice its current size.

    4. Everyone will now work on a Saturday. Children will go to school on a
    Saturday.

    5. The plice of gas will inclease to $4.50/garron. This will ensure that
    mass transit will finarry get paid some attention.

    6. Hot tubs for everyone! Then feet won’t smell so badry when everyone
    takes off their shoes.

    7. Marriages will be allanged when women reach the age of 25 and have not
    been able to find a spouse on their own. “Go-betweens” who know the
    famiries will be able to introduce compatible singles to one another, thus
    cutting down on the high divorce rate.

    8. Workmen who come to your house to do a job shall be clean and polite,
    and, whenever possible, arrive in pairs. They will not ask to use your
    phone or your toilet. When they are finished and have cleaned up, you will
    serve them green tea and cookies.

    9. Chopsticks will be mandatory at home, but forks, knives and spoons will
    be abailable at “American restaurants” upon request.

    10. Everything will become 3 times more expensive, which will cut down on
    the accumuration of junk and unnecessary purchases, that only end up in
    galage sales a year or two later.

    The above points being put into immediate practice, many beneficial effects
    will result.
    We will not change the sperring or pronunciation of any words.

  6. By Tim Frazier

    To the citizens of Great Britain,

    I obviously got your letter long after it was written. The last incompetent leader elected in the United States of America was Bill Clinton, and we did it as a joke. It was obviously a mistake and got quite out of hand. We apologize and will do our best to not let it happen again.

    In a successful attempt to rectify that mistake, we have twice now elected George W. Bush, who has done a fine job of clearing up the misunderstandings which resulted from the Benny Hill type antics of his predecessor. Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is welcome to exercise the same amount of political power over these United States as she does anywhere else. We really don’t think it will hurt anything and doubt that any of our citizens will actually notice.

    The Right Honourable Tony Blair, MP is welcome to come visit and give advice. We like him just fine, even if he is a labor—sorry, labour—party leader. People can be as liberal as they want as long as they jump in with us and start kicking butts when some back-woods mountain pirate in the middle east crosses the line. Here are our responses to the list of rules you sent us:

    We looked up “revocation” in the Oxford English Dictionary. We don’t care. We checked “aluminium” in the pronunciation guide. We are amazed at the fact that we produce and use this material more than anyone else in the world yet you want to tell us how to pronounce it. We are working on a language efficiency guide for you, to demonstrate how additional unnecessary letters like “u” in many words wastes valuable computer hard drive space. I agree we took these efficiencies a little too far in the decade or two prior to Y2K but we have learned our lesson and will restrict our tendency to abbreviate to common words, not date and time stamps. We recommend you obtain a copy of the “Blue Collar TV Redneck Dictionary”. We agree that using the same twenty seven words interspersed with filler noises such as “like” and “you know” is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. That (and many other reasons) is why we wholeheartedly support your immediate acquisition of the state of California. We won’t lift a finger to stop you and only request that in return you put a very high, impenetrable fence between them and us.

    You’re right, there is no such thing as “U.S. English.” Let us know when you plan to assimilate California and we will make sure we have moved the contents of Redmond to Silicon Valley prior to the acquisition. The software company you mentioned (I’m afraid to put their name in writing due to the proliferation of lawyers you pointed out) headquartered in Redmond could do with a little British intervention.

    We don’t need to learn to distinguish between English and Australian accents. Why would we bother when we don’t listen to anything either of you say anyway?

    Regarding your request for us to learn the words to “God Save the Queen”, we have never understood why the Queen needs to be saved. Hasn’t she been saved yet? It seems some British gentleman should get off his keister (look up “keister” in the “Redneck Dictionary) and save her, because you’ve been asking God to do it for a long time and it doesn’t appear He feels it’s an urgent matter (neither do we, we tend to be on His side—look up “Abraham Lincoln”).

    We’ll just have to agree to disagree. You mentioned “American” football. We also believe it should just be plain ol’ “football”. The Kevlar body armor—sorry, armour since that’s what you prefer—see how inefficient that is???—is a result of the proliferation of insurance companies and lawyers. We’re working on it. We have rugby, but it is played at secret locations and times to avoid insurance auditors and lawyers. We have successfully disguised it as Hockey…don’t get me started on why we didn’t have a hockey/American Rugby season last year, it’s a whole different topic…

    Regarding your demand for us to stop playing baseball, the baseball team in my area shows up on game day, but apparently has stopped playing baseball, so you win that one.

    Sure thing on the guns, just come on over and start taking them from us. You might want to bring some of that American Football Kevlar body armor and a whole lot of Australian army buddies with you. And plan on it taking a looooong time (look up “infinity”).

    Regarding your demand we carry nothing more dangerous than a vegetable peeler in public: like I said, we’ll comply with this a soon as you’ve successfully achieved your goal of taking away our guns (look up “cold, dead fingers”, “NRA”, and “Charlton Heston”).

    We agreed with the American Car problem a long time ago. Thats why the American car companies now own most of the European car companies (look up “Jaguar is now owned by Ford”. We do need help with our traffic system. We can’t even get people to walk on the right side in the mall here. I think we’ll outsource our traffic problems to Sweden. They have Volvos (look up “Ford owns Volvo”) so they are used to designing traffic flows for heavy, powerful vehicles, not dinky underpowered British horseless carriages.

    Belgium is a country??? I thought it was a chocolate manufacturer.

    I can’t speak to the opinions of other Americans, but you have valid points regarding beer. Guinness, however, licks anything else you have hollow. Imagine what the Irish could do if you guys got out of their business!

    US gas prices synchronized with UK: This is apparently already in progress. My Dodge Magnum burns $300.00 worth a month (Look up “Daimler-Chrysler” and “American Muscle Car”)

    In regards to learning to resolve problems without guns, lawyers, etc. you should become familiar with our continuum of force policies. We’re working on getting rid of the lawyers and therapists and escalating straight to the guns every time in order to make the dispute processes less time consuming.

    Who killed JFK? It’s driving you crazy??? So THAT’S what happened to you guys!

    Regarding your desire to collect taxes here back-dated to 1776, you are welcome to do that as soon as you complete your project to confiscate all our guns. You might want to get those vegetable peelers banned as well. We’re funny about higher taxes and have been trained to dispatch tax collectors with common household items such as bananas and whiffle balls. You’d be amazed at how much damage we could do with a peeler.

  8. Speaking of George W. Bush:

    Bush is a raging racist.

    Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

    And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

    Many people know what Bush did.

    And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

    Bush was absolute evil.

    Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

    Bush is a psychological prisoner.

    In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

    (I can type 90 words per minute. In only 7 days, posts basically like this post of mine have come into existence—all over the Internet (hundreds of copies). One can go to Google right now, type “George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism,” hit “Enter,” and find more than 550 copies indicating the content of this post. All in all, there are probably more than 2,000 copies on the Internet indicating the content of this post—it has, in a way, become headline news. One cannot be too dedicated when it comes to anti-Bush activities. As I looked back at my good computer work, I thought how fun and easy it was to do it.)
