I Want To Ride To Work On A Robot Ostrich From Russia

Why are we still talking about cars, anyway? They're yesterday's news. They're a relic of the 20th century. (The 19th century, if you want to get technical.) Today, I have seen the future, and it is robot ostriches from Russia. » 2/20/13 5:29pm 2/20/13 5:29pm

The French! They're so lazy. They don't want to work, they just want to lay around in their berets eating cheese, drinking wine, making love and losing wars. Not like us hard work-loving Americans.
