So Dear, where do you want to go on vacation this year?

I want to go to Ethiopia!

YAY! Me Too!!!

/conversation never held between two normal people.

RedShirtGuy: conversation never held between two normal people.

Which is kind of the sad thing. Ethiopia has got quite a few cool tings to check out but it's such a mess most people wouldn't think of going to visit.

'Safe and secure' seems a bit of an overstatement. 'Not dead yet' is more accurate. Not to mention, WTF are people thinking when they go hauling off to Africa for vacations? Trying to get a new STD named after them or something?

WhyteRaven74: Ethiopia has got quite a few cool tings to check out but it's such a mess most people wouldn't think of going to visit.

4 Realz, in the parlance of our times. Lots of history in Ethiopia, crade of civilization and all that. Looks like they have some pretty cool stuff relating to the old-ass Orthodox church there. Too bad it looks like Tatooine now and is a mite unstable. These aren't the British tourists you're looking for.

Ethiopia is the new Aruba, I guess.

You would have to be nuts to go anywhere near South or North Africa these days.

And your right.. It is sad

I agree with Detroit_Bob. "Safe and secure" in the hands of unknown kidnappers is a bit of a stretch.

five employees of the British Embassy ... along with 13 Ethiopian drivers or translators.

This sounds like one of those safari movies where there are 3 or 4 British people with about a dozen natives to carry all their crap.

Exactally what I'm talking about!

WTF go there?

I can watch critters run around on the Discovery channel, and If I feel the need for excitement or Danger I'll yell out my window that I'm a Republican and voted for Bush twice.

/It ain't easy being Republican in Detroit.
//Maybe Ethiopia would be safer.

Bravo RedShirtGuy! Maybe now you'll be "safe and secure" too! (If the Dems tell you to "wave," maybe you should pretend to...at least until you can grab their guns.

/Mostly polling
//Slightly trolling

"(If the Dems tell you to "wave," maybe you should pretend to...at least until you can grab their guns."

Not exactally sure what you just said.

/refuse to get into a political discussion on the intraweb
//Just here for humor
///Will always be a republican

Having the hostages be spotted might really help. Now that we know where the are, it becomes possible to launch rescue operations and much easier to catch the abductors after they release the hostages or kill them.
 
2007-03-10 05:07:21 AM
RedShirtGuy, I'm on your side. I was kind of trolling, as I said in the slashies. No harm intended. I'm sure that's why no one else responded. If it were a political statement I would have clarified it a bit. Just having a good time.
 
2007-03-10 05:43:06 AM
We all have abductors but we dont go galavanting about Africa showing them off to potentialy legless natives. That's how wars start.

/huh?

No Harm done Cheerwinedan.

Cheers!

Foreign Minister Seyoum Mesfin said tribal elders had reported the group was in Afar.

/They were later spotted in Anear
//Then later in Afar
///And once more in Anear

Replace "g.r.e.a.t" with "l.o.v.e.l.y" and you get:

We're having a lovely time, wish you were here
We're having a lovely time, wish you were here

There's miles of frankfurters and people who hurt us in Germany
We haven't played since yesterday
There's just ten more shows and one week to go
We'd all like to go

chorus

Great piles of spaghetti, bad vibes like confetti in Italy
We go by train and not by plane
We'd come home by car if it wasn't too far
To drive home by car

Hope you're well at home,
Next week I'll try to phone,
Not very long to go,
I'll tell you when I'm coming home as soon as I know

chorus

There's lots of French fries, disapproving eyes in the U.S.A.
We've had no shows since I don't know
There's just one thing wrong, we've been here too long
The money's all gone

chorus

There's kangaroos and we're bad news in Australia
Thrown off the plane for drinking beer
So long on the plane it drove us insane
So long on the plane

Hope you're well at home,
Next week I'll try to phone
Not very long to go
I'll tell you when I'm coming home as soon as I know

chorus

We've done very well, but we've been to hell and heaven as well

/Postcard!
//Because posting lyrics to entire songs is teh awesome
 
2007-03-10 09:08:38 AM
I'm sure that's why no one else responded.
Or because it made entirely no sense.
 
2007-03-10 10:43:41 AM

2007-03-10 01:07:27 PM
