An apology

Postby Grump642 on 21 Mar 2009 01:44

On behalf of myself and my countrymen, I would like to apologize to all our good friends in the UK. It was bad enough that our prez gave your PM 24 DVDs, after he gave the prez a one-of-a-kind thoughtful gift. But now it turns out that they were Reg 1 DVDs!!! And can't be played on your DVD players! And he is supposed to be tech smart? :ymblushing:

Was it 24 DVD's or DVD's of "24"? Cuz, if it's "24", what's to apologize for? =))
LINUX! Don't fight it. You will be assimilated!

You shouldn't apologise Grump, we are not responsible for the actions of others, even those that have been elected by us. I certainly won't be apologising for the actions of Mr Brown, past, present or future!

Plus 24 is worth watching, have only seen seasons 1-4, but will be getting the others. Perhaps Mr Brown will lend them to me :-J

Who knows, maybe Mr Brown has had those videos already cracked, and having a cup of tea in front of them. :mozilla_wink:
