Posted:Hello gang.

Has anyone else seen these billboard adverts around?

This one appeared at the bottom of my street. At first I thought it was a brilliant guerilla anti-US-hegemony thingamy, but the fact that it's been up since Friday and no-one's taken it down yet appears to indicate that it's a legit advert.

Anyone know what it might be about? Have you seen similar?

Ask a question and be a fool for a minute...don't ask and be a fool your whole life.

In the second phase of the campaign, the ads will be changed to read, Who says nothing good ever came out of America? The new channel from Five showcasing the best of the U.S. Its unclear if Bush will order an invasion in the coming days

Posted:Corn, Blues/Jazz, and Rap which is borderline.

The rest of the stuff we export is crap.

And as long as y'all keep buying Budweiser that's the way it's gonna stay.

Actually, our orange juice is pretty good.

But the rest of the stuff we keep here.

Unlike the UK which doesn't export stuff cuz it all sucks.

OK, Sorry, You're right: Doc Martins. I stand corrected. wink (Still confuses me that Docs are way cheaper here...)


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

As far as WE'RE concenred it's watered down urine too.

Which is why I'm surprised that it sells so well in countries that actually make their own decent beer like the UK. Y'all drink so much of it they've even got a brewery in England.

So it doesn't actually 'come from america'. wink
