Everybody in the stands,
Give our team a great big hand!
We’re the west, we’re the best

Clear the forests, mine the hills
Crush the aboriginals
Forging onward building nations
Damn asiatic protestations

Both of them were occidental?

You’ve had 5,000 years’ headstart
You say you’re better and you know it

So I didn’t recognize the EU flag! Give me a break, I am an American. And you, buttercup, cruel mistress of the internet, mere seconds after I posted, you would cruelly preserve that embarrassing error in amber for the entertainment of future generations? MY grandchildren could see it for christ’s sake. Be merciful :frowning:

Sorry, being a meanie. :laughing:

Buttercup needs her coffee.

Well, I thought it was great :bravo: :bravo: :bravo:
