    Americans Annoyed by Internationalization of Internet

    Link: http://www.satirewire.com/news/0010/international.shtml

    Disclaimer--wee bit of spicy language, sorta bordering between PG-13 and a pretty mild R. My apologies to Freetster if it's too spicy for us here, I only saw one inappropriate word in the article (though it's right smack in the title).

    right? correct me if i am wrong

    Well... *cough* Satire or not, currently there is a case being tried where a kid charged with terrorism in the U.S. showed up with a T-Shirt sporting a Canadian beer add derailing myths about Canada. According to the prosecutor and a lot of other people that makes him a violent anti-American. A pro-Canadian shirt = anti-American. Did I mention the kid was a relocated Canadian citizen?

    So yeah, this story wouldn't be all that hard to believe after all.
