    You have no idea how badly I'd rather give New Jersey to, well, anyone that'd take it. Hell, I'd pay the Saudi's $50 and a goat to take it. :bergman:

    And this post ladies and gentleman shows that it takes more then a 1000 posts for Newbie NotKnowWordforgeWay-itis to be expelled from a newbie and they get with the program.

    That ad is a slap in the face to Americans, who I'm willing to bet buy a damned sight more Absolut vodka than do the Mexicans. I don't buy vodka often, but when I do, I'll remember this ad.

    If it showed Mexico as part of the US, would it be funny?

    No, 'cause it'd mean 108 million brand new Democrats would be added to the welfare dole over night. :bergman:

    Well, isn't that just lovely?

    It would be a shame if a rogue nuclear weapon went off in downtown Mexico City.

    No, 'cause it'd mean 34 million brand new Democrats would be added to the welfare dole over night. :bergman:

    And, you can't trust those beady-eyed, floppy-headed bastards.

    Leave the Mexicans alone! I feel sorry for them because they have those loooooong names. Apparently many are related, because a lot of their names start with "The State of Arizona versus......." :unsure:

    If that's an ad from a Mexican magazine, why is the caption in English?

    Hell, here in Phoenix, AZ 3/4 of our billboard ads are in Spanish.

    I smell a rat... :chris:

    Born and raised. Why? Because the family left West Virginia when they broke away from Virginia in support of the Union.

    Well, if they try to recreate the alamo battle right now, they'll have a good chance 'cause a lot of downtown roads are closed for the basketball madness going on right now... :garamet:

    No. Perhaps even less funny.
