Presesident who???


Im in the bad books again... Ohh hang on no thats not right Ive never left! My Stick up her bottom mother in law sent me the floowing email:

An email from Ireland to all of their brethren in the States... a point to ponder despite your political affiliation: About all the information you might need..... THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY I know that some of you don't like to read long drawn out missives... so here's the executive summary......... Congress Military John McCain 26 Years 22 Years Barack Obama 143 Days 0

We in Ireland can't figure out why you people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States . On one side, you had a pants wearing female lawyer, married to another lawyer who can't seem to keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer, who goes to the wrong church, who is married to yet another lawyer, who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run! Now... On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate 'Mc' prefix, married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship!! What are ya lads thinkin' over in the colonies!?

I thought it was funny so I sent a funny back:

Im on team Obama! I think its about time the country had a minority run the
country he might have some new ideas instead of being a stuffy old windbag
who probably wont live through a term in govenment giving it to a woman whos
daughter cant keep her legs closed.

Ok I know it was a bit tongue in cheek but hey its all a bit funny really I mean here in Australia we are a ittle bit more layed back when it comes to putting someone in the top job. Never the less my Inlaws didnt see my humor and I got a SLAP back this morning:

We should remember that our Presidents of the church are usually well past
the age of McCain when they became Presidents. As I recall Allen liked John
McCain. I wouldn't dream of getting involved in Australian politics because
it is not my place to do so as I am not a citizen. I remember a biblical
phrase that goes something like this......let he who has not committed a sin
cast the first stone. A parent cannot be with their child 24 hours a day 7
days a week I'm sure that you have regrets over some of the things you did
growing up also.
I am a registered Republican and so is Allen's Dad, for a Democrat with a
reputation of being the most liberal Senator be elected President we feel it
would be a BIG mistake. Sally and Billy

How or who we elect as our President is our responsibility not yours. We
don't tell you who you elect as your representatives. So in reality it's
none of Australia's business or concern. If you like him so much we will
send him to you. Billy
Allen and I thought that was a bit heavy handed and ALlen asked me to type this back to them:

Gee why dont you just cut my head off ! Excuse me but I was joking! As for representing MY country well since Im going to renounce my citizenship and become an Australian I really dont care who you vote for.

Its funny but here we are taking the election seriously I mean its looking like the next leader s going to be the first black pressident which is going to make him a very big target for a would be gunman. Australia knows that we have a huge amount of money invested in American banks as well as our exports to the states this all has a big impact on who is voted in. I noticed while in the states last year that the amount of overseas news coverage was very limited which made it very difficult to keep up with whats going on at home.

OK so Ive had my say I dont thin I did anything wrong and Allen and I agreed that they took it out of context AGAIN and refuse to see the funny sie in ANYTHING. Gee lighten up lifes to short to walk around with a face like a cats bum. Puckering up.

Oh come on girl!
Your married to an (ex)yank, have been to the States, and spent time with yanks!
Your problem was not the humour but that it wasn't obvious enough, and thus they didn't see it as such.
You gotta remember these yanks are dumb stupid (who throws billions of $$ into an economy after 9-11 because they're scared of a recession hitting, and then is surprised and baffled when rampant over-{spending|committing} occurs and sub-prime mortgages are handed out to the un-employed) and any humour needs to be so damn obvious it goes in one ear and out the other, and then around until it reaches the first hole from the back of the neck!
Slap the biatch back and let her know who's boss, then do it again for good measure (or for next time!).

Yes, I just got back from the USA a few days ago and was reminded just how dumb, ignorant, and blinkered they are - and these were the white collar upper-middle class I was forced to fraternise with!
When they know how to make good coffee and realise that StarBucks and percolators are shite, then they can come back and play with the big boys and girls from DownUnder ... until then, slap them once more as a reminder :)
