#Quote
1 I moved to England to be the best looking person for once. In America, it's "Oh my God, you look like Buddy Holly! You some kind of freak?" In England, it's "Oh my God, who is that? He has all his teeth and his ears are in proportion to his head! He can't be a member of the Royal Family!"
2 People in England drink like someone is going to take it away from them.
3 Is there a legal drinking age in England? I was in a pub, and this foetus floating in a jar was drinking more than me.
4 I think it was Jesus, no I'm SURE it was Jesus who said: "Fuckin' faggots!"
5 We won't legalize marijuana in my country because we have Logic in my country: "We can't legalize marijuana, Greg, perish the thought! If we legalize marijuana... everyone will want to smoke it. With the Death Penalty, less people will Die. If everybody has a gun, we'll all be safe!"
