The funniest thing I've read this week

Travels with a Parasol is a wonderful blog by an aid worker currently in Haiti. The recent post, entitled "Cultural Differences" had me in stitches.

An except:

Interpreting a Terrorist Alert...

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats
and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon,
though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A
Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940
when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from
"Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a
"Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.

Go and read the whole thing now!!
