No, I PM teutone when I need German translations for my ebay.de addiction. But thanks for asking.

And BY the way, it is BUY.

Not sure which is the most appropriate so here's a smörgåsbord...

Basic but with a hint of hickory...




This one has an air of unexpected morality questions about it...




Crass but effective in its message...




A little something for TeeKay...




...and Z...




Aww.







But what may be closest to the truth?

Hey, there's been a serious recount in which (unlike the previously published estimate, conveniently published right before a presidential election) actual scientific methods were used, peer-reviewed, and published. The death estimates have declined by at least half, possibly as much as 375,000.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Imperial Math

Well, they are "darkies", so we've just reverted to old-school pre-civil war accounting methods for our imperial subjects--they're only 3/5 of a real human

600,000 X .6 = 360,000 = no big deal

Huh? Again, you missed the recent analysis that demonstrated between 125,000 and 200,000 Iraqis have lost their lives since the war began. Your racist approach is your own.

The Bright Man's Burden

But, those figures are still no big deal, right? 'Cause they are sitting on our oil, and that makes the whole fiasco kosher, right? Acceptable losses--it's all good
