Gay Britannia

In England you can be prosecuted for holding the opinion that homosexuality is immoral. And you can be prosecuted for saying that Islam is a "barmy" doctrine insofar as it supports that opinion. And you can be prosecuted for telling a police officer that his horse is gay.

Actually, that last one went a bit too far even for the sensitive, sensitive Brits, and the Crown has in the end decided not to prosecute. The police still believe they have a case, though, so I wouldn't mention gay horses too loudly in England if I were you. In the unlikely event that the subject should come up, I mean.

So I guess that you could be arrested for an off colour remark about a horse of a different colour, eh? Wokka wokka wokka!!!!

Political correctness is a barmy doctrine.

Ha, hold the belief that homosexuality is immoral? Some liberal member of parliment has just "resigned" after he was caught scoring it up real good with a male hooker...

But you know, those laws also apply to Wales, Scotland and Northen Ireland or the "United Kingdom" if you will.

Americans have so much trouble with the fact that England is a part of the UK, as opposed to England actually BEING the UK.

Coming from you it seems even more shocking, because you seem to think your well read - Clearly not, exactly which dweeb did you steal the 'Concept of the Soul' essay off?

Yeah, Dan, but what about the Outer Hebrides? Same deal there? Ane when you say "Americans" you mean South Americans, right? Anyway, I can't see what "wales" [sic] have to do with it, as long as they remain in international waters...

As for who I stole the Concept from, I'm not at liberty to say, but I also stole a song about the difference between necessary and sufficient conditions from the same dweeb.

Getting burned by you is actually quite a great feeling. I was merely pointing out that Americans (North Americans then...specifically) do have considerable trouble when it comes to geography.

Im not fully sure if the Wales thing is a gag or not, I suspect it is, but who can tell :(

Someone in your band once claimed to be in love with Paula Pierce so I dont know what to beleive.
