Our American Cousin

Sic Semper Tyrannis, anyone?

Steve Hall, one of the premiere ad bloggers, pictured here, is being sued by Virgin America, part of the Virgin Group, of which SIR RICHARD Branson, also pictured here, is the Chairman. As far as I know, SIR RICHARD has done nothing like ride a black horse into the thick of battle to defend the Throne and is therefore undeserving of the title SIR. (Then again, all Elton John did was write stupid ballads and they call him SIR over there, too.)

Virgin is angry because Steve's blog posted a fake ad they received promoting Virgin America. The offending ad showed US Air's flight 1529 in the Hudson. The ad was clearly fake, and the original post said as much, but SIR RICHARD is not a man to make light of (diverted and avoided) tragedy. He will defend his HONOUR, as he is a SIR. (Full story here.)

This is clearly a case of spoiled Brit Babies taking out their frustrations on carefree and fun-loving Americans. Steve Hall is from Boston. Coincidence? I think not. Time for some sort of Revived Boston Tea Party, where we dump a bunch of Virgin Mobile phones in the HARBOUR.

Lighten up, Richard. Or can I call you Dick?

  • Christ. I thought the whole side effect of social media was that people and brands would take themselves less seriously.

    Whatever. Hope Branson takes a tumble out of a hot air balloon.

  • Never!

    It has been noted that 'bloggers' played some part in the treasonous 'election' of a new Governor-General of the North American Colonies (staged without permission).

    Thus,a targeted campaign against these rabble-rousing 'bloggers' has now been launched by the advance elements of Her Majesty's Forces.

    Sir Richard is merely the opening salvo in a terrifying shock and awe campaign aimed at destroying your 'interwebs', prior to a ground assault spearheaded by other British millionaires such as Sir Paul Mcartney and JK Rowling.

    Feel their wrath....
