This morning begins with an all-out slugfest over who can say the most ridiculous thing.
Representing the Americas, from Terrell Texas, is Betty Brown:
Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and [the rest of the Chinese-American community] to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?
That’s right — Betty thinks that Chinese (and Korean and Japanese) people living in America should change their names because she has trouble with them.
What will Team Europe do to counter? They call the number of Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi:
Of course, their current lodgings are a bit temporary. But [those people who had their homes destroyed in the earthquake] should see it like a weekend of camping.
Yes, Mr. Berlusconi. People who have just lost friends, family, their homes and all their possessions should enjoy the wonderful 4-degree camping experience they have been provided with. Particularly the two hundred who still do not have tents.
Who is more offensive? Only YOU can decide!
