Buff's message to America

G'day all! Buff Staysail here! Buff by name and Buff by nature!

Tomorrow's a big day for you yanks but alas yours truly won't be on the menu after the sad demise of the Buff for President campaign, though I should say that the Billionaires for Buff PAC is still accepting contributions via the Cayman Islands (hint hint Mitt) if you want this expert's endorsement.

Couple of points for you, first up JP's been asked a couple of times on his travels across the pond "how do you think we're looking after your colonies?" and its been puzzling him.

The thing is those darn limeys have invaded almost everywhere. Indeed according to the map above from The Telegraph (see here) they've only missed 20 countries in their rampage across the world.

But JP says that doesn't count as that's all a long time ago, not like the modern Britain (see the London Olympics etc).

Anyhow the point is you're in a boat with pretty much everyone else and so hopefully its clear why they don't spend long worrying about any one country in particular.

Secondly note that this is not a competition!! Don't feel you have to beat the Brits at this! That's what the Olympics is for (see London 2012).

Finally if you do find yourself invading (say) the Marshall Islands (4 athletes at the London 2012 Olympics) it might be polite to ask them if they'd like join in, for old times sake.

Well that's a lot of words for Buff, so I'll say over and out and head over to the fridge for a cold one!

Best of luck from one ex-colony to another!

I hate to break it to Buff, but the USA already invaded the Marshall Islands (in 1944.) They came in very handy for testing nuclear bombs. As a result, I think there are slightly fewer Marshall Islands than there used to be.

Jeez, they went in without the Brits?

Well I guess there were a few distractions going on in '44.
