    I love it! Where do you find all these jewels?? With friends in Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton, it is especially hilarious read for me. I will pass it on to them! But marry an American? NO WAY!!

    I’ll just point out that Canadians are Americans too. I guess most of them will continue to marry other americans. 🙂

    Last time I checked, Venezuelans and Mexicans were Americans as well. Oh, and let’s not forget the Argentinians! 😉

    I am glad that the silent majority in America has spoken so loudly on election day here. So much for Michael Moore,Hollywood,the bias media,the guardian calling for the assassination of our president,the endorsement of Kerry by known terrorists ,the endorsement for Kerry by the Coalition of the unwilling weasels…. CONTINUE INSULTING OUR COUNTRY AND OUR PEOPLE BUT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS FREED AND SAVED MORE PEOPLE THAN ALL THE WORLD COMBINED IN ONLY OVER 200 YEARS OF EXISTENCE…IF NOT FOR US THE FRENCH WOULD BE SPEAKING GERMAN AND SO ON……BUSH IS NO ANGEL BUT HE IS NOT A PATSY FOR THE UN OR ANYONE ELSE….GOD BLESS AMERICA AND LIKE BUSH FEELS SO DO WE…. TO HELL WITH EVERYONE WHO WOULD HAVE US BOW OUR KNEES AND SURRENDER…ANY NATION THAT HARBORS AIDS ABBETS SUPPORTS FUNDS….TERRORISM BETTER WHATCH YOUR ASSES CAUSE WE WILL BE COMING FOR YOU MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    As a fellow American, Frank, I’d like you to know: I am far stronger than your hatred and your ignorance, the 82% of Manhattan and 80% of Philadelphia that fought with me are far stronger than your weakness and fear, and we will utterly defeat your unfounded anger and the lies that you vomit. This is a country that overcame slavery, worked for decades to give women the right to vote, and fought a protracted battle for civil rights and the equality of all Americans. Your fearmongering, your slanders, and your caps locks key are trivial, sick jokes by comparison, and we will demolish them easily.

    I think “Good heavens, are you in earnest?” is my favourite response ever, Jill. That’s freaking hilarious.

    Yes, Toril, stay away from marrying any Americans because 51% of them are actually trolls. Uff. If that commenter is really American and is really in earnest, then I want to apologize, as another American (of the 49%), for his trollish outbreak. It has become a curse to live here. The site you linked to was touching.
