Good Christ! You only started 12 of 'em old man! The Dutch of course had New Amsterdam first!

I daresay you can't lump me, Loki, John Bryan and who knows how many of the other denizens here in with the colonials! I don't figure they let any Pollacks or various and sundry other Hunkies on the fekking Mayflower!

Besides, that would make me a cake eater! Fuck that shit!

The Moosters have been drinking beer and pissing on this fine continent before throwing tea in harbors was all the rage and fashion - although after the Mayflower landing. So we are squarely guilty of kicking Englander asses twice over here and guilty of bailing them out of shit twice over there. A Mooster was even bright enough to get his ass shot off with Custer. Not necessarily a distinguished piece of our family military wisdom but always in the thick of it nonetheless.

Yup, guilty.

Of course it should be noted that manned flight had yet to be invented back during the ass-kicking sessions. So obviously the Von ancestral pool had yet to come to their fullest military potential and fruition; whether ruling the skies with wingmachines or jumping out of them for no good reason whatsoever.

Semi-related: I saw a commercial on TV where some guy traced his family history and proudly proclaimed that one of his forebearers had been a neighbor of the Wright Brothers. I said, "Great. So you were the fuckers who DIDN'T invent the airplane." Showed him. Or...at least it showed him as far as drunkenly yelling at the TV will show someone.

Peace,

That's why when we bailed out the Englanders the second time, we conveniently forgot to bail out the Polskis for whom the Englanders and Frogs jumped in the war in defense of to begin with.

Clever redneck crackers that we are.

Nothing personal, but the vast majority of them still breathe underwater.

Now we know how the Von managed to survive the frequent and massive beer drownings to which he has subjected himself!

It never lets me down, it stimulates imagination, extends my legendary sexual prowess and then transports me happily away from the travails that life has heaped upon mi' shoulders... ALL HAIL BEER!!!
