George Bush's watch clocked on eBay
On its way to Oz via Kazakhstan
Sadly, there's no photo at present to back up the sale, but the vendor does give a very good reason:
I bought this watch from an Albanian friend, he claims to have "borrowed" it from George Bush.
I can't prove it's an Authentic Dubya timepiece, (It has a Mickey Mouse face, as opposed to the Presidential Seal) but it's certainly a nice watch.
Obviously the watch is second hand, however it's in mint condition.
I'll add an image later when the watch arrives from Albania (apparently it's going via Kazakhstan)
You'll have to get in quick to snap up this purchase, i've already had lots of interest from embarrassed Secret Service bodyguards who want it back, apparently their boss is lost without it.
Well, El Prez can currently buy his watch back for a bid in excess of AUS$26, which is a lot cheaper than sending in a unit of special forces to retrieve it. ®
Thanks to Craig Templeton for the timely tip-off. Sadly, eBay has now pulled the auction. Either that, or the seller is as we speak on a rendition flight to Guantanamo.
George bush's watch On Ebay
It appears it has resurfaced on ebay heres the link to it:
Its his original Timex peice by the looks of it, and is also coming from Albania.
The ad got booted again by ebay. This time the ad allegedly broke their "fee circumvention policy" by containing the text "All reasonable offers considered". A quick search on google found the following, still running, ads containing the same text...
and many many more... conspiracy theory anyone...
anyway, just to annoy the humour police, the ad has been re-posted, for the third time, let's see how long it lasts...
I is hurt...(only a smidgen)
If you want to take jabs at America that's fine. Most of them are pretty amusing anyways. But try to remember that we're not all the same. A baptist from southern Alabama is a far cry from an atheist in Pennsylvania. There's a big difference in attitude, morals, education, and so on and so forth. Make fun of our government, our economy, and our inability to blend in foreign countries and not look like a tourist. But don't lump us all together. That's like saying that everyone on the island can't cook (still up for debate), or all of the french are rude, or that all polish people make blondes look smart.
I've travelled a bit. You guys across the pond are great. I don't get why everyone's got to bash everyone else. Except the Albanians...come on, who can trust them now? ^_-
