Change is the only constant.

Don't feel too bad that "yer frozen North" doesn't make the list. :)
They put a McCain poster over the words on the Statue of Liberty. ;)
Just until after the elections, perhaps.

Deep, meaningful, oxymoronic and Zen phrasic. You win. :D

It's nice to know all those expensive management courses weren't a complete waste of money.

Am I the only one who finds it amusing that one of the main reasons Brits are looking to emigrate in record numbers is all of the immigration coming into the UK??

**snicker****

You couldn't make it up: "There are also too many foreigners coming in and using up all our resources. We want a better life"

Irony is wonderful.

No, you're not the only one. Many of us have given up trying to point out the irony a long time ago.

It's probably best explained using some kind of irony bar. Applied to the forehead.

Extreme irony! Like where people climb up mountains and do irony there.

Or is it ironing?

:lol:

I'm still wondering if there's some sort of implosion if number 685 decides to leave??

How would we know? maybe they could just sneak out, furtively.

Or what if it was only 683? Would "they" chuck another one out?

I dont think anyone here has any idea how many come and go.

many times i have gone over to france, the imigration guy looks at you holding a bunch of red passports, and they just wave you through without look at them.
