Debates and Discussions

Comment of the day: "TEXAS IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY EVER!!!"

Mildly dumb controversy continues to rage over Bree Davies' comparison of the (relatively) new MTV series Skins to the U.K. version of the show. Even though the critique tackled only the first episode and was posted nearly two months ago now, it seems to have inspired a flame of passion that just keeps on burning -- and a truly bizarre debate that's somehow morphed into being about the superiority of the U.K. versus the U.S. in general. Since a couple of new ones rolled in overnight, we feel like it's a good time to share our favorite one so far from reader U sucK (nice one), who makes the case for Texas.

TEXAS IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY EVER!!!!!!!! BRITAIN QUIT BITCHING BECAUSE WE LEFT YOUR DUMB ASS MONARCH COUNTRY CENTURIES AGO. YOUR COUNTRY'S PEOPLE ARE TOO STUPID TOO MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS THUS THE REASON FOR THE KING AND QUEEN SO SHUT UP BEFORE WE KICK YOUR ASS AGAIN OR ELSE THE SAYING "HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF" WILL BE LITERAL.

Lolwut? Well, take heed, England. There's a guy who really likes the Republic of Texas, and he's gunning for you.
