How can you just "cancel" a war, especially since it hasn´t started yet.  Yeah sure

LOL! Yeah, war is cancelled...Bush and his entire administration are resigning, and Tracy Ullman is going to be president, vice-president and the entire government! Big grin

Nice one, Wardialer...

Tracy Ullman is a British comedienne who plays all different roles in various costumes. She's HILARIOUS!

Tracy also had a hit song in the 80's, where Sir Paul McCarthy made a cameo appearance.  Smile It was a cute little love song called "They Don't Know About Us", I think. I liked it. Maybe while I'm killing the kids by feeding them at McDonalds, someone can find a link to the song!  Big grin

I remember when Col Hogan and his gang ended World War II from the confines of their prison camp in "Hogan's Hero's"  Big thumbs up

Tracy Ullman sucks, she was cool for about a minute and a half in the late 80's/early 90's, but then everyone realized that most of her comedy stuff was of the British variety...and therefore not funny to the rest of the world outside of England. Watching her on old Comedy Central reruns is absolutely brutal.

Well, Mandala, they ARE a de-facto wing of the Republican Party, so maybe President Bush has doled out that responsibility to them?  Big grin

If that is the case then most people hate to get their news from liberal networks (PMSNBC, CBS, NBC, CNN)... After all, FNC usually has either 5 of 5, or 4 of 5 of the top rated news programs nightly.

Don't forget the 1988 movie "A Fish Called Wanda." One of the funniest movies I've ever seen, definately one of the weirdest.

I only listed TV series above, but for Jsc17, maybe we could also do up a list English comedy in the movies  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

British TV comedy is frequently aimed at a slightly higher mental level than American TV. American TV seems to be aimed at about a 11-12 year old level. I mean the jokes and pranks are really basic. Roseanne was supposed to be funny ?!?

British comedy was aimed quite a bit higher. Things like BlackAdder and Yes, Minister seem to be beyond the grasp of most younger teens (my kids' age) who seem to think Friends is funny as hell, but seem to miss every single joke from British comedy (except Benny Hill). Just look at Yes, Minister - you pretty much have to have already an idea of what government and bureaucracies are like to appreciate it - and show me a teenager who does.

Mandala499,
If you would´ve read reply three, you would probably have understood that my thinking power was quite hindered at the time. I came home at 5 am this morning.  Nuts

Yeah, I agree about Tracy Ullman and British comedy being aimed at older people and higher mentality. I for one LOVE British comedy, have for quite awhile, while I just don't get the American white-trash stuff like Beavis and Butthead and Roseanne.

Tracy Ullman IS funny to people outside of England...just to people with more of a sense of comedy than a bunch of fat people being crass.  Big grin

The song is "They Don't Know" and it was originally recorded by the late Kirsty Maccoll. Kirsty's version is far superior.

I love British comedy (Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, and the original Dear John being my favorites) but I never found Tracy funny. We must, however, thank her for The Simpsons.
