John Cleese Declaration of Revocation (not)

Note: OK, I just learned that this was NOT infact
written by Cleese and I have falley prey to the old Vonnegut speech trick…damn. Well, I’ll keep the link and the
rebuttal going anyway…

This “Declaration of Revocation” has been
making the rounds in emails (my cousin sent it to me recently), but I figured I’d post it because, well, it’s just too
damn funny not to. It’s written by John Cleese and has a definite Cleesian/Monty Python style. I just wish the Pythons
were still together. This would have made a very funny skit.

If you’ve ever traveled, well, pretty much anywhere, but especially Britain, you’ve heard these complaints about the
US before.

Here’s one of my favorite excerpts:

You will no longer be allowed to own or carry guns. You will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more
dangerous in public than a vegetable peeler. Because we don’t believe you are sensible enough to handle potentially
dangerous items, you will require a permit if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public

You know someone, somewhere, is writing a strong rebuttal to this. In fact, I’m working on one right now and will post
it shortly.
