Sounds like sarcasm to me. Claiming the folks "over there" like sheep is a rather common phenomenon around these parts. I've heard many versions of it and is almost always said in jest ("Montana... where the men are men and the sheep are scared" etc.). It's not entirely appropriate, but in context it is clear that Wayne was attempting to employ his rather odd sense of humor (see? that's another attempt at sarcasm by me).

Americans tend to make fun of Brits for being funny looking, the royalty, etc. I would expect that we shoud be able to take being made fun of by others. All of it should be in the context of poking fun and not deriding.

ODD sense of humor? MOI!?!?!?!? :shock: I will have you know that several people have commented on how funny this actually was ... just not in public. Maybe we ALL have odd senses of humor?

BUTTTTT, on the off chance that it is offensive to those who would have been discussing that subject, I will tender an apology and try not to do it again any time soon ... you do know my memory is as long as ..
Bush's credibility level is high ...what did you think I was going to say?


PS the Brits and the Yanks BOTH make fun of the French :wink:
