All I have to say is that I am really disappointed that none of the last 10 submissions I've submitted have made it to WTF?!?!?!??!!?!?? Answers, please.

Man, stay up to 3am and the brain fuzzes out. I thought that tagline meant China was sending the US a 1 million dollar bill, like a slip of cloth-paper, colored dingey-green, with some crazy monument on it. Geez-
2001-07-07 06:33:04 AM  
it would be counterfeit, ig-88. the chinese government can't mint u.s. currency.

I'm sure China ended up with some intelligence secrets after keeping the plane there for so long... probably secrets worth much more than $1M. They should seriously shut up.
2001-07-07 08:31:18 AM  
China,man, I thought you were cool. The check's in the mail.
2001-07-07 09:14:16 AM  
Apperently the going price for a US spy plane is only one million dollars for three months. hmmmm-- Tito are you listning?

That's fair. If someone accidently parked their car outside my house I'd be having words too.
2001-07-07 10:56:00 AM  
HAHAHA! That's great. But why didn't they send the bill before they sent the plane back?
2001-07-07 11:46:31 AM  
Fine, China...come over here & collect
2001-07-07 11:54:04 AM  
This is amusing, not asinine. What's funnier is that I heard on the news that the US has some bills of their own they're going to send over.

Flibber, I'll pass on the obligatory joke about Bill being 6' and the average Sinitic labourer (female) being significantly shorter.

'The disassembled plane was flown to Dobbins Air Reserve Base on Thursday.'

That is one talented pilot! I love out of context quotes.

I say we bomb the fuck out of them and then bill them for the bombs we used. Just a thought.
2001-07-07 03:35:25 PM  
okay, did none of you read the article?
2001-07-07 03:40:42 PM  
does it matter?
2001-07-07 03:42:34 PM  
Maybe we should just pull down our shorts and take it up the ass and pay them since hell we just gave them tons of free electronics to study and play with. I say what we should do is let other countries have all of our most advance technology then give them money above that but not before we risk the lives of our men. Maybe we can just wussy out a wimpy little wimper, "please use some lubrication before your ass raping."

I wonder if O.J. sent the Goldmans his drycleaning bill.
2001-07-07 03:50:16 PM  
All the little closet racists crawl out when these sorts of things happen...the article isn't about mostly about the bill at all, China wanted some cash, US said no, and they moved on.
2001-07-07 03:59:42 PM  
to quote from the article:
The costs were related mostly to support provided by the Chinese government and local businesses while a Lockheed Martin recovery crew was on Hainan.
2001-07-07 04:06:21 PM  
Evil is good, baby! China needs a gimmickm, like high explosives.

Those space ponies are all over the place, over there in red nation, the second. We wanted our plane back, they said no they were going to keep it. Now they send us the bill for keeping it. Its wild, baby! Now thats a gimmick!
2001-07-07 06:06:31 PM  
The put the Boot on our plane until we pony up the dough -- the bastards!

And seriously Skwidd, how do you trot out "Yellow Horde" at 7:15 AM? Jingoism before 9 on a Saturday is so gauche.
2001-07-07 07:19:58 PM  
Oh, well, as long as you have a reason.
2001-07-07 07:40:34 PM  
Why not send a bill back for $1M + $10 .. for reassembly of the plane?
2001-07-07 08:57:56 PM  
I say we pre-bill them 100 million for the NUKES we should "send" a good will offering. HOW DO YOU SAY BOOM IN CHINESE?
2001-07-07 09:02:07 PM  
yeah, let's nuke china. that seems like a good idea. we would all live, of course. because nuking things is fine and china is to backwards to actually have any nuclear capabilities themselves. they'd be all like "ah soo! ah-mellikan devirs shoot lockets at us! ah-soo! we so solly we steal prane! preez no kill us!" ha-ha. stupid chinese!
2001-07-07 10:31:28 PM  
Damn it, man, if you're going to do racial humor, do it right. We Chinamen say "Oh-Sah!"
As in, "Oh-sah! Amellikans are so much betta than us sranty-eyed gookchinkjaps! You want flied lice? Ayai! Oh-sah!"

Secondly, we don't have Nukes, all we go is eat rice, sheesh. It's not as if the Chinese government is just publically slapping around the Bush administration to see how far they can push this new president, no, we're all a bunch of slanty-eyed ricepickers with no political skills.
2001-07-07 10:41:18 PM  
Lets see.. adding up all the technology china has stolen from us in Peace time, and applying a price to said technology = no more debt for the U.S. (of course, if you are bush, "whats a debt?")

One of these days... Milk shake! BOOM!
2001-07-07 11:21:26 PM  
except most of the u.s.'s debt is not to china.
2001-07-07 11:37:34 PM  
You guys are all idiots. If you destroy China, all dollar stores would go out of business.
2001-07-08 12:38:52 AM  
Dang meat settle down. Like anything we say or do means anything. Well I guess you are just venting. Wow I guess so am I. Wow I am as bad as you now someone jump my ass.
2001-07-08 01:33:48 AM  
2001-07-08 03:49:58 AM  
dang, big unit. that's just my personality.
2001-07-08 05:13:06 AM  
hehehehehe.. dollar stores out of business. That's rich.
