I fear this may be the last copy I ever file, following a chilling warning from the White House regarding stories I may or may not write next week, and which could have devastating consequences for the future of humanity. Earlier today, I ill-advisedly posted a rather tasty flame from "", pre-objecting to …

    It's a fake

    That's not a real note from any politician in the US, as demonstrated by the lack of the expression "American Values" (at least once per sentence, it's law).

      and . . .

      . . .there's also no ad-break or product placement.

      I wonder what happend to our old mate 'Axis of Evil' is he playing in another band now?

      Barack is a very smart lawyer, he'd have done it the lawyerly way (i.e., with a super-injunction).

      Probably the CIA would implement it for him --- so you wouldn't even know there's an injunction, your keyboard would just refuse to type the statements concerned.

    > should Navy SEALs penetrate the defensive cordon

    Just toss 'em a few fish. They'll soon stop trying to balance beach balls on their noses and waddle off to partake of your snack.

    We know where you live. And if we're wrong, we'll slaughter the innocent civilians living there anyway, and it will all be your fault.

      It's generally hidden under careful wording, but...

      Sometimes I wonder whether my government would sound like GLaDOS if only it spoke more concisely.

    I believe the correct phrase is: " Can I haz ur stuff?"

      No no no...

      That's incorrect lolspeak.

      This -> "I can haz ur stuffs?"

      You have to invert the subject and the verb in a query and generally make as many other spelling or grammatical mistakes as humanly possibly.

    Also, be warned that women and seamen don't mix.

        To my knowledge

        this is from a Simpsons 'Tree House of Horror' episode where Monty burns plans a trip to 'Ape Island' and needs bait (to capture the giant ape), which leads to Marge joining the expedition. Smithers then says the aforementioned line.

        did I just say all that?

    The men who ride such a chopper have spunk, I'll say that much. I've heard that with stealth and cunning such a chopper can penetrate even the most heavily guarded inner circle. Just be careful it doesn't leave you weeping after unexpectedly breaching your back door one night...
