Not to be prejudiced but I suspect the Americans could be some of our best contributors!

"I do not like this word "bomb." It is not a bomb. It is a device that is exploding." (French ambassador, speaking on the subject of France's nuclear weapons programme)

He's right, you know. It's not a bomb, it's an ├╝berbomb!
    Posted by Socky on 14 Nov 2009.
Yes yes, he's right. It's not the "Nuclear Bomb," it's the "Nuclear Device That Is Exploding." Sounds to me like a literal translation of the North Korean word for the bomb. :)

"Keep the government out of our Medicare!" - Senior Citizens against American healthcare reform.
    Posted by ColinAYB on 20 Oct 2009. + (6) - (2) Permalink
Not sure I really see the silly side to this, to be honest. Well, I suppose not having publically funded healthcare seems a bit silly to me as a Brit. But this quote seems quite reasonable, in the context of someone who wants the American system to remain unchanged.
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 20 Oct 2009.
Ah, I get it, Medicare is a government-run health insurance scheme. I can see the silly side now. :)
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 20 Oct 2009.
Yes, they seem to want this Medicare thing for their own pretty badly.
