Throwingtofu….. You stole my comment… Not exactly… But, I was going to go that route with my comment… I’m so sad that I’m going to go write a lame FaceBook status about it. Maybe it’ll be funnier than these.
cptn – Sorry, but it happens to me too sometimes, which is fine because most of my FB friends aren’t as into LB as I am, so I have to share the ‘highlights’ with them… but only in JPG form because FB is still too butthurt about LB to allow a link to this site to exist on FB for more than like 15 minutes (trust me, I did that once without thinking – and then all the friends who commented got annoyed with me because they thought *I* was the one who deleted it).
I’m a foil for believing this, but starting tonight, this is the year that New South Wales will reclaim the State of Origin Trophy. Go you blue bastards. PA and NoLongerTroll, if you’re out there, you guys know what I’m talking about.
I’ve never really understood why the “press one for English” complaint is so widespread. Maybe it’s because in Canada I’m used to seeing two different languages for everything? I mean, I can see cefrtain people being pissed off if they had to wait until “press eight for English” but I don’t see the problem with being able to press one right away…
So the language brought to the U.S. and forced on the indigenous people by European (British) invaders is being pushed aside by the language brought to Mexico and forced on the indigenous people by the European (Spanish) invaders? Suck it up “English only” xenophobes. You’re getting exactly what you deserve. Isn’t irony sweet?
Well it’s not just Spanish, we’re a melting pot of different cultures and ethnicities so there’s a lot of different languages spoken here besides just English and Spanish, which is probably why the US doesn’t have an official language. It’s sad that racism and hate has led people to not be able to see the beauty in the diversity of this country.
