An American Apology


I was very pleased to receive this email earlier today.

Dear World,

We, the United States of America, your top quality supplier of the ideals of liberty and democracy, would like to apologize for our 2001-2009 interruption in service.

The technical fault that led to this eight-year service outage has been located, and the software responsible was replaced November 4. Early tests of the newly installed program indicate that we are now operating correctly, and we expect it to be fully functional on January 20, 2009.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the outage. We look forward to resuming full service and hope to improve in years to come.

We thank you for your patience and understanding,

Sincerely,
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Well USA, all I can say is thank you for the apology, but can you ensure that when this new model has run its course (and assuming it doesn't have any malfunctions during service) that you take care to replace it with a similar model. Thank you.

We'll try our best! The old model certainly had flaws.

Love it. Not fair though, The Americans get a man who can inspire people by just opening his mouth and speaking a few words. We get Gordon Brown.

Apologies for the above deleted comment, one day I will learn to type correctly!

I didn't receive this apology! Could it be that's because I'm Italian and they think that our PM is even worse that their old President and it's us who have to apologize??? Ciao. A.

Did you ever see the one about Britain reposessing America? It's from last summer, but still funny http://tinyurl.com/5c88gl

Too funny!

What scares me is that Sarah Palin is campaigning for 2012.

If that woman ever gets in office I will consider handing in my US passport.

So pleased you all liked it - there's always the fear of a republican backlash of course - but we seem to be ok so far :-)

Kayleigh, I saw that one last year - sadly it turned out not to be true! Shame!
