Can I ask you a question? What is it with you Americans and the butt? You guys love homosexuality and you love the butt. Why?

Am I the only one who sees the irony of a guy named "Woody" asking this?

This is HORRIBLE. Just absolutely terrible.

LOL! Of course it is! That's why I'm here posting and not touring the world!

On the outside chance that you actually listened to any of them (which I sorta doubt), thanks for listening anyway!

Can Andercheck be the next one that gets fired?

"last night i fucked your mom up the ass, the american way... it was great"

Can I ask you a question? What is it with you Americans and the butt? You guys love homosexuality and you love the butt. Why?

You go invade Iraq and what does the world hear next? American soldiers playing with the Arab guys butts.

What is wrong with you Americans anyways? All your men are homosexual butt lovers.

Why don't you like the vagina? What is it about playing with feces, smelling them, stirring them around, packing them in, that stimulates you?

Yeah but this is possibly just the first move, what if they fire everyone else?
But why would they buy SCI/EIDOS then sack the people who do the actual work? They're the sort of people who get absorbed/integrated/assimilated, like EA did with all the talent they bought out.

Warner Brothers should have caned and lynched them instead. That would have been their just deserts.

Exactly.. The US is supposed to be about democracy, so now the whole world can be democratic via our homegrown internet. Eat it up, government types

Then Blue will have another chance to use the ever so clever 'Adios from Eidos' line.

PR, Marketing, and Sales are worthless in any case. I like seeing those groups go. They didn't lay off any developers, they layed off excess employees that deal with the media. Makes sense.
