If I needed the laugh that would surely have provided it!!! Oh, what
a hoot! I guess if we were to invade England over this "WMD" there'd be
some kind of poetic justice in making them our colony :-)
BTW, even though it's not a scheduled weeekend for a club launch, it
looks like this might be the first "good" weather weekend of the year.
Should I be packing up the toys, just in case?

I think we bought all/most of our WMDs from you guys anyway!

AH HA!!! You have some! There's all that the Bushwhacker needs!
I thought it funny during the reports on the Iraq invasion that
finding Iraqi chem-suits was considered proof of there being Iraqi
WMD's. At which point I roared over them then talking about our
chem-suits without realizing the loose string they'd just left dangling.
The crowning hoot was reporters poking about in the remains of the UN
office in the capital finding a chem-suit. Guess that explains Homeland
(in)Security and the Patriots Act, we've officially invaded ourselves.
Watch out UN building, you're next!
Not only that, but England, AKA the UK, was once a fearsome
