Flame of the Week: The British are scum

We think it was Andrew's Canadian story that lit the touch paper

[Clearly deranged, this beloved reader started responding to Andrew's story where he suggested we supply a baby seal for Canadians to club, but then the switch went and suddenly we're involved in the joys of the British Empire. We started taking out the spelling mistakes, but then figured that add a certain something to the piece]

Will you really supply the baby seal? I thought this would be against the all knowing, all wise, we're older and smarter than thou, we really don't know a thing about your country it's people and their heritage but we're ready to tell you how to live, what to think, who to worship, aristocratical, anal retentive, snobish, elitest attitute of the sad reminence [remnants?] of the British (read failed) empire.

I use the term "failed" as it is most appropriate. Your empire failed at just about everything it attempted. You destroyed your natural resources through bad management. You lost your great empire because of your arrogance and lack of vision. You poisoned your land waters through greed, and then infected Canada by attempting the same here. Remember Hudson... You bend knee to a spoiled brunch of inbred dinosaurs that better resemble a bad US soap opera, and you have the gall to ridicule Canadians.

My anchestors were British, and I still have family there. I grieve for both that they have had to, and still must, live amongst the ilk known as the British.
