    I have some change, how much goat or sheep can I eat for it?

    Thankyou DoK for bringing another semi entertaining thread to a screeching halt.

    I mean Pari and the others did their best to bring this thread back up to semi entertaining levels after this groaner:

        And where in the survival guide does it say people on Idiot Mode can't be entertained?

        Yeah, I know....

        That's what's so disappointing about this.

                No it would require the US to adopt Vegemite and Ricky Ponting (or at least cricket per sae).

                Of course given what I have seen of casual American cuisine this would probably mean mixing dollops of Vegemite and molasses together, deep frying it in butter then rolling it in bread crumbs to serve on top of a stack of pancakes. As for Ricky Ponting and Cricket, the intricacies of the game would also defeat most citizens of the US I suspect until it was reduced to 10 overs played with using "round" bats by teams of swimsuit clad models who could be crash tackled in the mud pool/obstacle course that crossed the centre of the wicket by members of the opposing team.

                If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.
