By the way, for those who may not know it, defectiveyeti.com is run by the charming and vivacious, Shadowkeeper.

I think Matt was trying to use the subjunctive.

Goddamned Switzerland never commits to any of my party Evites. "Oh, I don't know if I can make it... I'd betterkeep my options open..."

Bugger off, chocolate-and-cheese-heads. You're either with us or against us.

Anyone notice the classy gesture Shadowkeeper made in his post about being Mefi'd? Now *that's* a blogger with style.

What's the menu to be served?

What's the menu to be served?

Most likely, a heaping serving of iron-fisted justice, followed by a nice big slice of liberty pie.

mmmm....pie
posted by MrMoonPie at 1:42 PM on September 16, 2002


I like pie.

I hope liberty tastes like apples.

Also, baseball, hot dogs, and Chevrolet.

unfortunately liberty pie is off the menu (it's only half-baked). Instead there will be a finger buffet with unexpoded cluster bomblets in an oil marinade.

can I bring my own condiments?

Dear United States,
when come back, bring pie.
mmmm, pie...

triop: only if they burn well. I hear there is going to be some sort of flambé for pudding. chefs speciality.

Yeah, props to Shadowkeeper for sharing the wealth.

I still feel obligated to point out inaccuracies -- most of the "no" states are only opposed to that bugaboo of bugaboos, the "unilateral" attack on Iraq. Qatar, Turkey, and Kuwait were clearly Yes, Jordan a Maybe, and of NATO nations only Germany has insisted they will send no troops under any circumstances (but they're embroiled in an election campaign). And Switzerland a Maybe? Talk about WHAT. THE. FUCK. They're only just now joining the UN. The only place abroad they send troops is the Vatican.

Dear George,

Thank you for the invitation. However, we regret that we will be unable to attend.

Warmest regards,

... yup, we may get rained out and have to reschedule
posted by sheauga at 4:16 PM on September 16, 2002


"Iraq says it will allow U.N. weapons inspectors to immediately return to the country without conditions, but a senior U.S. official discounted the announcement, saying "we do not take what Saddam says at face value."

Will not negotiate...... Must not negotiate...... Talking may leave the other person alive..... Must not negotiate.....

If rescheduling is in order, may I suggest that we try for a date before November 5th?
posted by mediareport at 4:27 PM on September 16, 2002


Dear George--
My my my. Seems that our last little kafuffle is all water under the bridge now. You never called, you didn't write, no flowers sent after that little Kashmir blowup this past year, and now it seems you think Pakistan is hotter than I am. Just because it's next to Afghanistan. What-ever!

I always knew you didn't love me. But now this: you want to get in bed with me again? Hah. I think not, my once-love. You can't have us both, you two-timer! Never call me again (at least until you dump that little minx Pakistan. Then I'm in for the long haul).

I know your not inviting me was just an oversight as you're probably really busy organizing this huge party with all your friends. But just in case you ask - I can't make it - still cleaning up after the last party... have a blast.

(ps - if you have any leftovers you need to get rid of let me know - we'd love more of those yellow party-food bags)

Just a note to let you know I heard about the bash - those UN gossips, you know, what a set of cackling hens - but I'm not upset about being excluded. I was going to spend the weekend with North Korea anyway, working on this axis project we have going, so could you guys try to keep the noise down?

Cheers

Listen, keep the noise down, eh, and can we remember that firecrackers scare the pets. Even if they do land where they're thrown.

If you must have these do's, bear in mind some of the neighbours have to get up for work the next day.

Thanks.

Hey George,

Hmm, we've noticed we're not on the invite list--thats OK, we're a little short on cash these days anyway.

But while we're on the subject, could you invade down here? Anywhere is fine, heck, we've got plenty of saber rattling wacko leaders who kill lots of people. We could really use some regime change/nation building action.

luv,
