LOL thats awesome, i fear this thread will be moved to a less popular forum though.

I think America living in a constant state or fear is considered good for business.

they are using the same tactic as the media...they pick and choose the clips they want...some journalists are calmer about it while others think its more of a big deal...

Very funny and while obviously selective clips were used, the point is actually valid - UK & US news really are two very different beasts.

I did giggle at the video, which is rare. I have a weird sense of humour. But when it hits our shores, not sure I'll still be laughing. America has a right to go a bit OTT. It's there already.

That was classic. Thanks I really needed a good laugh today ant that covered it. For all our British friends who may not know, 2 40's is a reference to 40oz malt liquor. Cheap beer that usually leads to a headache but will get you messed up pretty fast

I am saying this since the beginning of this, I have the feeling that the US people are somehow real sissies.
They always want to be depicted as real man with their guns etc. but somehow the USA is a country that constantly lives in fear of everything.
They should just man up and handle it like adults and not like little girls.

From the B.B.C.news;

"Police wish to interview a horned man seen wearing a red costume and carrying a pitchfork.
They believe he may be able to help them with their inquiries".
