Nope. Just the Ambassador.

The only thing I found surprising in their stereotyping, was when they called them lazy. I always thought it was the opposite and that they work hard for really pathetic wages? Well, that was the sterotype I am most familiar with.

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.

Because taking hash into the desert to dry while they sit around from the hours between 9am and 3pm drinking tequila and taking pot shots at DEA is such hard work...

I was talking about the illegal immigrants in the US.

But I see your point.

Alas the irony, calling the mexicans lazy but they still can't be bothered to write anything better than "haha we're being politically incorrect! don't be offended though it's just a joke!"

I really enjoy top gear, I think the presenters are very entertaining, but the very thinly veiled satire is getting a bit stale and boring.

LOL
but seriously people can fuck off. I reckon half of the people only complained when they read the story in the daily fucking mail.

Its like jonathon ross and russel brand with andrew sachs except 100 times tamer.
People seriously need to take the stick out of their asses and beat some sense into themselves.

kudos to lillian thorne for the awesome sig

and those half were probably white people, the only race who give themselves the title "race defenders", while the race in question laughs its tits off.
