…buggering buffering thing going on with the video download, I apologise, but this is very funny. Try and bear it. The YouTube version has the rabid headline “Obama is an asshole” but the original Onion header reads Obama Drastically Scales Back Goals For America After Visiting Denny’s. We must always keep in mind that YouTube is symbolic of American democracy, about which Adlai Stevenson remarked, “In America, anybody can be president. That’s the risk you take.” Aluta continua, I say. Who thinks there are no lessons to learn from history? (And sorry about that Mr Obama, I am a real big fan, and also from Africa.)
But moving on: I am looking for a cartoon, about 20 years old, of the some Japanese guy (sushi-eating Japan) taking the mickey out of Americans. If anybody has it please send. Although we really should stop laughing at the US, because after all, we have Manto, Jacob and Julius… and now, it would seem, a healthcare plan that would scare the living daylights out of Hillary Clinton. In the meantime…. (it’s hard to ignore the headline, but try… I will post a more respectful version as soon as I find one).
