Despondent Freepers beg Queen Elizabeth II to take back the American colonies

Why do they hate America so much?

I imagine this is the official reaction from Buckingham Palace:


Your Majesty,

We, the people of the former American colonies, would like to offer our most sincere apology over that little misunderstanding we had 236 years ago. Had we known that we were going to be subjects anyway, we could have saved a lot of trouble and hard feelings.

We were under the mistaken belief that we would be free, sovereign citizens; we believed that our hard work would yield its own rewards without someone coming along and taking what we built in the name of “Fairness”. We thought our laws and Constitution would protect us from a foreign born dictator, and our freedom to worship would prevent us from becoming a corrupt, morally bankrupt society (silly us).

Little did we know that our own free press would intentionally sabotage, deceive and withhold the truth from us in order to reelect a Socialist that still holds distain for our nation and contempt for its founding principles. Nor did we believe that there would be so many citizens dependent on government handouts that they would blindly elect an unqualified charlatan, let alone reelect him.

Anyway, Your Grace, we are truly sorry and humbly sincerely beg your forgiveness. If you can find it in your heart to forgive us and take us back, we promise never to trade British oppression for Socialist tyranny again.

Your most humble servants,

The American People

4. We could start by pointing out that England has national health care

Just bring an umbrella to protect yourself from all the debris when their heads explode.

12. I'd set myself on fire before signing up with Mordor, but

this is the answer I would post:

Blue Collar (and do wash that shirt.)

While I value my reputation as a gracious, well mannered sweet old lady, regarding your request, it requires an acknowledgment which my dear consort and husband would use ....

Up yours, you gibbering get.

Also, a British monarch is addressed as Your Majesty. Your Grace is used when addressing riff raft such as a duke or duchess.

Idiot

Yours sincerely,

Elizabeth, R

13. "Your Grace"?

You never refer to the Queen in this manner! It's Your Majesty.

They really never think all the way through anything, do they?
