You wouldn't pass the factory worker conditions inspections - we've all seen Orange County Choppers and West Coast Customs - the staff abuse is horrendous.

You must know these shows are not reality. However, they can't be made in the USA for the same reason they aren't being made in the UK. Cost's too much.

When you order your Pi, ensure you get in a good supply of irony. It seems to be lost on you at present.

Yes. Isn't it ironic how that whole irony thing escapes some of us?

Ironically, someone even took the P out of the title


rasberry for USA too!

Your ironic comment about reality shows did not escape me.  Brilliant!

Oh, this just in... News shows aren't new.

No, that's just unfortunate. But it is a little bit ironic that that was not an example of an ironic statement

You're right.  I may have been an attempt at humor, but there was nothing ironic about the statement.  Just the typical Brit looking down his nose at Yanks.

I never used to "look down my nose at Yanks" when it came to getting irony. But then you let Alanis Morissette take the oath

It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife. (Which sentence happens also to be a splendid demonstration that there's at least one Canadian who doesn't get irony either.)

"I guess irony can be... pretty ironic sometimes" Hey, that was said by a Canadian actor, if it helps...

I accidentally shorted out my irony and am only left with sarcasm...  :-/
I sometimes ride my Pi to the Forum.
