So spammy-poos are coming after the brit-twit. Poor Brit bastards ya used ta be tough. Till the Gv'mnt tit became more important than
Brit-yeoman-steel. And the damnable OxBridge culture less important than the next ecstasy tab ta stick up yer arse. More's the pity.

'Course now us Yank dsl-rubes keep our Winchesters and Mauser-98s well oiled, so while the byte_wogs may get us, the first-one-thru-the-door gets sent ta hell. Remember? Ya used ta be like that also. Ya taught us why and how ta do it. More's the pity.

We have to agree. If you're sticking an ecstasy tablet up your back passage - stop now. You're wasting your time, and your money. ®
