Yet Another Reason Brits Should Be Glad They Don't Own Us Anymore

In addition to surly colonialists who fought a guerrilla war against neatly lined up British soldiers, the decimation of the Queen's English, and the export to British soil of Madonna, the U.S. has now produced a deadly mosquito capable of putting Brits into a coma. What will we think of next to piss off our friends across the pond?
This story is actually quite terrifying- mosquitoes carrying eastern equine encephalitis, a horse illness transferable to humans. My solution: when the illness hits Minnesota bring back the DDT! Never mind the peregrine falcons, bald eagles, loons and other wildlife. I refuse to wear a mosquito netting burka, even with the right belt.

I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.
