Yet Another Urban Legend Disproved

John Cleese

Potem, ko je Bush jr. drugič snedel volitve, sem nekje na netu našel dokument z naslovom “Revocation of independence“. Bojda naj bi ga spisal John Cleese, tole pa so nekateri bolj zabavni poudarki:

To the citizens of the United States of America, in the light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective today.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories.

Except Utah, which she does not fancy.

Your new Prime Minister (The Right Honourable Tony Blair, MP for the 97.85% of you who have until now been unaware that there is a world outside your borders) will appoint a Minister for America without the need for further elections
You should look up “revocation” in the Oxford English Dictionary. Then look up “aluminium.” Check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.

The letter ‘U’ will be reinstated in words such as ‘favour’ and ‘neighbour’; skipping the letter ‘U’ is nothing more than laziness on your part. Likewise, you will learn to spell ‘doughnut’ without skipping half the letters.

You will end your love affair with the letter ‘Z’ (pronounced ‘zed’ not ‘zee’) and the suffix “ize” will be replaced by the suffix “ise.”

….in tako naprej…. Celotno besedilo (še enkrat) je tule.

A tudi ta urbana legenda se je razblinila. Ni bil John Cleese, pač pa neki Alan Baxter iz Rochestra, vsaj tako trdijo na Škoda sicer, ampak še vedno je zabavno

  1. Alan Baxter??? A ni to en alpski smučar, ki so mu, potem ko je padel na doping testu, vzeli bronasto medaljo na olimpijskih igrah?

  2. Zna bit… Kdo ve, kaj gre človeku po glavi potem, ko mu vzamejo olimpijsko medaljo 😉

    Ampak pomoje je ime Alan Baxter v Veliki Britaniji tako pogosto kot Janez Novakn v Sloveniji…

  3. Well, next time double check before pointing a finger, young man…. Sheesh, the youth these days… (leaves the scene shaking his head in amazement) 🙂
