    I’m glad you made this post. Everyone needs to chill and let others have their fun. Yes, Americans are ignorant and stupid and self entitled and everything else that sucks. Oh well… At least we can take a joke . They did help to solve the mystery of this talented artist’s suicide… Well played, Jack.

    Humor runs in the family. Howard should recruit your brother for L.A.P. 🙂

      Apparently you said that wrong according to the buzz kill crowd…

        Ed Zachery! (…actually, I was suffering from Catarrh…the jokes on all of you, and it works both ways as a pun.)…happy Wikki-hunting. 😉

    Buzz kill big time! Seeing as I’m Canadian, I shall refrain from commenting on the whole “Americans” thing or who knows where that might lead to. 🙂 But I can say this… I really enjoy your blog Chris!

    Great read!

    The next time someone points a 3006 in my face, I’ll remember that piece of trivia. Not that it could save my life, but I’d be laughing at the incongruity of it all. 🙂

      Those Dutch! What’s a 3006?

      • floridaborne September 12, 2013 at 5:39 PM #

        The bullets that fit into my first husband’s elephant rifle. He called it his 3006 (whether he was sober or drunk). I called it grounds for divorce.

        I guess you could say I was the elephant in the living room. And yes, I do believe in our 2nd amendment rights for the same reason I’m not out protesting against the 2000 pound+ weapons that shoot down our highways each day. There are many more irresponsible drivers than there are irresponsible gun owners. 🙂

    Now I don’t know what to believe. I’d better either go learn Dutch or just give up.

    This post makes me want to hum a Dutch song! Just like that, Chris. Your blog has great power.

    Hee hee..I’d have believed he was Dutch if he had some more repetitive vowels in his name.

    The irony is that the initial joke is lost on all following the exchange. Get a life people! Thanks for editing it and thus giving us the shortened version.

    OMG! There’s two of you wits in the same family! The blessings abound.

    Not that I want to defend any Americans or anything but, I confess as a Canadian (English speaking Canadian) I pronounce it the same way. In the mean time…cool van.

    Shhesh – don’t any of you know there are no Americans left? There are: African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Pan-Pacific-Americans, Asian-Americans and Other. Me? I’m French/English/Scottish/Canadian/AmericanIndian/American. Otherwise known as Other.
