Thats him, agreed he has a lovely voice. Oprah got Anthony Hopkins to read the phone book on her show recently as she always said she loved his voice so much that she could listen to him doing that.

"Easy to please" and Latina don't go in the same sentence.

Cartman also did a good latina impression in an episode of south park when his hand became the next jennifer lopez (don't ask me to explain).
Anyway as a result of that I now have certain phrases I can say in a female puerto rician accent which never fail to make me laugh.
None of the above will mean anything to you or anyone else, so I'll stop rambling now.

Yep.
Actually now that I think about it the "Oh no you ddn't" comes from a South Park where cartman tries to be the most out of control kid and appears on Jerry Springer as a child hooker - anyway he sounded a bit like Rosie Perez in white men can't jump.

Have you any idea how much you have confused me now ???

First I heard of it.

I did mention yesterday that today was St David's Day and what were they doing for it. Cmyru am Byth.

Blank looks.

But then as far as I know there is only one person of black ancestry in the town and he is well beyond retirement age. So it would not mean very much to any of the students, or teachers.

There was a bit on the radio this morning, 10th Grade Geography lesson?!, one of the students recorded it, amazing, the guy was complete left wing nutter. Completely off his trolley. And they get paid for this. Sort of story that has some legs, will be interesting to see how it runs.

To be fair the kid seemed straight, no political axe to grind, just recorded all his lessons, but then my wife records her lectures on her I Pod.

It's so you can go and repent all your sins, dust to dust and we will return and all that good stuff, hence the ashes

I'd never seen it in the UK and didn't realise it was Ash Wednesday until someone told me. Oh me of little faith

Have to admit I spent my lunch hour at the Ash Wednesday church service and got my ashes on my forehead, however, I forgot they were there and left church to pick up my lunch and go back to my office with a black cross on my forehead. :scared:
