...What? We got ripped off.
2002-07-19 04:52:02 PM  
In reference to, not seeing a huge giant war on CNN, that is.
2002-07-19 04:52:37 PM  
And they spelled 'Morocco' wrong.

I'm done now.
2002-07-19 04:52:55 PM  
Is Moracco near Morocco?
2002-07-19 04:53:08 PM  
Morocco is fun to spell and say! Yeah!
2002-07-19 04:53:40 PM  
Well, this had the potential of escalating to a conflict between dozens of soldiers. I guess it avoids a huge headache for NATO.
2002-07-19 04:54:12 PM  
Or so the Moroccans would have you believe.
2002-07-19 04:57:23 PM  
Should linnks with blatant typos get approved?


2002-07-19 04:58:32 PM  
What's in a name?


's Pain

It figures.
2002-07-19 04:58:57 PM  
I also noticed that Morocco was misspelled.
2002-07-19 04:59:13 PM  
I think they intentionally post links with typo-headlines just to see how many people comment on the typo. It's a game, baby!

What do you think?
2002-07-19 05:01:34 PM  
Muhahahah hahah HAhahah Ha
2002-07-19 05:03:37 PM  
I've had turds bigger than that dinky little island they're fighting over.

I wonder how the soldiers on the island feel, just camping out on a pile of rocks barely big enough to hold their helicopter. I bet they're playing a lot of poker and tapping the kitty pr0n at night...
2002-07-19 05:05:41 PM  
Daily Show did it.
2002-07-19 05:06:09 PM  
They realized that this wasn't a military issue, it was a cheese issue.
2002-07-19 05:07:10 PM  
It's a trick! Moracco said so! Not Morocco! See the difference! There's an "a" instead of...I'm retarded. That is all.
2002-07-19 05:08:36 PM  
So there's three countries in this now? Wow.

Morocco, Spain, and Moracco. I wonder if their combined GDPs are as much as Bill Gates is worth?
2002-07-19 05:09:33 PM  
Of course, they have to take turns pedalling the generator to get power to be able to watch kitty porn. By satellitle-phone dial-up.

I'm just waiting for screaming hordes of Berbers to sweep into Ceuta and Tangiers.
2002-07-19 05:10:51 PM  
It's a trap!
2002-07-19 05:13:11 PM  

The Frinch will be pissed when they hear about this.

Not to mention the Inglish and Rossyans.

2002-07-19 05:13:18 PM  
Admiral Akbar approved!

We seem to have a problem, moracco mole.
2002-07-19 05:13:48 PM  
In case anybody cares, it may be that Morocco comes from Arabic which has no particular spelling when transliterated to English. Like Osama, Usama, etc or Koran, Qu'ran, etc. So practically anything with the right consonants refers to the same country. At least that's my guess.
2002-07-19 05:17:04 PM  
Like Amerika?

Aw are we gonna monitor drug trafficking now?
2002-07-19 05:18:58 PM  
The reason it's important to save the Island from the heathen masses from the south is to save these guys...

Isn't the Knick Knack standing next to Khan Noonien Singh?
2002-07-19 05:21:03 PM  
hmmm. Goldmember coming out in a few weeks. Tiny island captured. Seems like Dr. Evil may be involved. Call up Austin Powers! Yeah Baby!
2002-07-19 05:25:07 PM  
Kurpal: No, more like Umiraco. :-)
2002-07-19 05:26:59 PM  
Perhaps I'm lacking something present in other CNN fans, but this whole story has bored me to tears since it started.
2002-07-19 05:30:44 PM  
Sell it on Ebay!!
2002-07-19 05:34:02 PM  
Hey, somebody spelled Morocco wrong, did anyone else notice this?
2002-07-19 05:34:44 PM  
ScienceGuy: In Arabic, Morocco is called "al-Maghrib", which literally means "the west" or "sunset." It seems more likely that the Western name Morocco is derived from the European word for North-Africans, "Moors" or, in Spanish "moros." Sorry, got a little carried away there, but there is just one proper spelling in the Latin alphabet.
2002-07-19 05:36:42 PM  
Blah blah blah flori-duh LOLLOLOL!!11.

Anyway, has anyone else noticed that the boobies in the boobies tag now jiggle?
2002-07-19 05:37:19 PM  
Whoops, wrong thread. Shoot me in the face, please.
2002-07-19 05:41:30 PM  
Seems to me like the rock is on the Moroccan side of the carseat. Give to the guy who wears the fez. It's a cooler hat than anything Spain has to offer.
2002-07-19 05:41:36 PM  
Ever noticed how these petty little wars seem to be over pathetic god-forsaken piles of rocks? All of them!
2002-07-19 05:43:48 PM  
Dios mio.

That is all.
2002-07-19 05:52:37 PM  
What would a military battle between Spain and Morocco look like, anyway? A couple of guys in humvees playing chicken?
2002-07-19 06:21:35 PM  
The Spanish troops outnumber us. That's not good.

The Spanish consider themselves our scientific equals.

The Spanish are impressed with our cultural achievements.

The Spanish fear our swordsman.

We have 2 extra wine and the Spanish would love to have it. Why don't we see what they'll offer?
2002-07-19 06:29:00 PM  
Spain can take over Morocco manana
2002-07-19 06:36:59 PM  
CIV III humor rocks.
Want to trade for Bronze Alphabet?
2002-07-19 06:37:40 PM  
When Morocco sent in those twelve "troops..." Had they been smart-bombing the island for six months first and no one noticed?

Morocco (or Maracca) never expected the Spanish Inquisition!
2002-07-19 06:55:06 PM  
Bizzerk -

I hate to break it to you, but the Fez is from Turkey... and the Spaniards gave us....

[image from too old to be available]
2002-07-19 07:13:17 PM  
They also gave us Florida. Bastards.
2002-07-19 07:21:04 PM  
ooh, your right, kinda cancels out the hat thing... ;p
2002-07-19 07:33:25 PM  
In a lame attempt to be original (and drunk), isn't it spelt "Monaco"?
Oh and kekekekekeke! ^_^ for good measure.
