Well, I was pondering the other day how nice it would be to have a maid or a butler, on account of I work too much, and it sure would be nice to have somebody to just boss around and have scrub the floors and do the cooking and shopping. After seeing shows like Downton Abbey and Upstairs Downstairs, it dawned on me that they have the perfect accents, seem well suited to such chores, and I'm not so sure we ever did get even for the war of 1812, the burning of the white-house and all. So even though I have a small place, and the maid or butler would have to sleep on the floor, and I couldn't pay 'em anything, it sure would be nice to have one. Thus, I ask my fellow furs, and in particular, my fellow Americans, should the US invade the UK, in order to make the population our maids and butlers? After all, the standard of living is in decline in the US, and what a way to make folks here feel things were on the up and up. Not to mention, I'm sure a lot of those kinky Brits would fall right into the role, and be thankful for the opportunity.
