It was just a joke. A tasteless joke, but a joke.
Burger king CEO insults English women and this warrants a Wikinews article?
Family Guy and other shows on Television must have done this hundreds of times.
Meg: "You could murder all the girls prettier than me." Death: "No, that would just leave England"
As an American I don't get insults when somebody says Americans are fat. I know it's a stereotype and they aren't talking about me personally. (I weight about 80 Kgs and am 185 cm Tall). Furthermore, I think it's a hilarious joke.
English women being ugly is obviously the same thing. Look at girls like Kiera Knightly, Micha Barton, Kate Beckinsale, etc. etc. etc. It's a joke that's been around for a while and people should just get over it. It's said to be funny, not to offend. If you take something as offensive that was intended to entertain, then you perhaps need the attitude adjustment.
i think were taking this speech from B.Hees to the university students about us british women to seriously,after all how serious can we take this speech coming from a person born to a country of mongrels (yes;british, french, spanish & irish mixes,no pure breds there apart from the native indians)also known to be amongst the wieghtest(fatest)of nations. i suggest he looks at his countrys mirror before insulting others.
I fully agree with the above comment.....i have worked in the USA several times, and had to suffer such bad food quality, that i couldn't wait to leave the country so that i could sample good food again.....the USA have such big heads about themselves.....they actually have to grow two
