Egg's off, bacon's off, bread's off, tea's off. English is on though.
Welcome to the USSA
There may be some debate about the precise meaning of USSA (is it United Socialist States of America or United Soviet States of America?), but there is little doubt that the former USA is taking a leaf from the book of Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela, long lambasted by Washington as an authoritarian communist. In effectively nationalizing the world’s largest insurance company, AIG, the American administration can at least hide its credentials behind the old USSR joke: Under capitalism, Man exploits Man. Under communism, it is exactly the opposite.
What do YOU think USSA stands for?
