When you say something like "excessive number of Arabs" it sounds as if you dont like them very much.

If you say thats not the case...then fine.

How about if you put the word 'black' or 'african-american' in place of the word 'arab' - to me that doesnt sound very good - but like I say, thats just me.

A Texan, an African American, and a guy from Michigan are out riding horses. The
Texan pulls out an expensive bottle of whiskey, takes a swig, then
another and suddenly throws the bottle in the air, pulls out his gun and
shoots the bottle in mid air.
The African American looks at him and says, "What are you doing? That was a
perfectly good bottle of whiskey! "The Texan says, "In Texas, there's
plenty of whiskey and bottles are cheap,"

A while later, not wanting to be outdone, the African American pulls out a bottle of
oil,throws the bottle in the air, pulls out his gun and shoots it. The
guy from Michigan can't believe this and says, "What did you do that
for? That was a perfectly good bottle of Oil" The African American says "In my
country there's plenty of oil and bottles are cheap."

So a while later the guy from Michigan pulls out a bottle of beer. He
opens it, takes a sip, takes another sip, and then chugs the rest. He
then puts the bottle back in his saddlebag, pulls out his gun, turns
around and shoots the African American. The Texan, shocked, says, "Why did you do
that?" The guy from Michigan says,"Well, in Michigan, we have plenty of
African Americans, but bottles are worth a dime."

Yup...still pretty funny.

Don't worry Lyn...it was a joke, and it was funny. I don't get upset when I hear Irish jokes about drinking and fighting. You know why???

BECAUSE IT'S A ****ING JOKE!!!!

I don`t think it is racist! Its a joke. Hillbillies, pollocks, southerners, hippes, all jokes need a punch line.

That movie is a classic. But don't watch it if this joke offended you! Your head might explode with al the political incorrectness!

LITP and Suit, you do know that this site has an ignore feature available, right? Both of you seem like educated guys, and I enjoy reading both of your posts, but I think that everyone is getting a little tired of the constant bitching between you two.

At the risk of being politically correct BBC I dont actually want any of these ridiculous 'bitching' sessions.

I'd like to be able to post whats on my mind without the stupidity that follows.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
