Make any more endorsements and we'll have to call you Victor Kiam (not sure about the spelling of his name?)

Then how come if Israel is a nuclear country do they never allow the UN inspectors in. I guess it's because they come from another country eg USA. GW is not the the brightest guy around but to do that and lose all of the US's oil. odd things politics

Israel got clever - it never signed the non-proliferation treaty, so it can do what it likes (it always has anyway).  The Arab states all signed up to the non-proliferation treaty, so are bound by its terms.  Iran did threaten to revoke its commitment to the non-proliferation treaty, but so far has not done anything about it.

The nuclear non-proliferation treaty does allow for the peaceful use of nuclear technology, but as we saw with Iraq, you may not even have any nuclear technology at all, but how do you prove a negative, particularly if the USA will adamantly insist you are always hiding something no matter how much searching leads to a negative result.

Oh I see. It's one of those jokes you get, but it isn't funny.

It is very British humour, we are a little less obvious. I'm not including Benny Hill in this. I thought George Bush was looking for his 'Big Bird sings the alphabet' CDs. His assistant said she had put them in a rack but he misheard her.

George Bush thinks Big Bird is his aunt and does not know how to use a CD player because he hasn't had the 20 week training course on CD use for the "mentally challenged."

Jim, on the other hand, passed with flying colours.

I'm a little late, but I thought it was funny!

When the Beaver (I am lovingly referring to both  of course to the TV classic "Leave It To Beaver and its star as well as Doctor Beaver) stops posting to a subject where he and I have traded insults it means he is sulking. He has no direct retort. He has lost the battle.

Just a bit of info for you who do not know him well.

What it means is that some of us have work to do. Unlike you, I don't have time to spend half my waking hours on TNS and the other half fantasising about having a gneiss time with limestone.

I am having a gneiss time with work myself. I can just accomplish more as it seems I don't need to sleep.

So where is the retort, rodent?
