it's good to know this is still going around. I got all but the french one in a "God Bless America" email about how dumb that country was when i was in college. I wish you had put up the Dan Quayle one about wishing he had studied latin in school so that he could speak to the wonderful latin american people.

Nice One

Hate to be the party pooper..
but Mariah actually never said that stuff... (it's an urban legend)

It's likt the alleged 'anti semetic' comments lauryn hjill was supposed to have made..
They were the result of someone making a satirical joke on the celebs and people took it literally..
