    Reminds me of the WWII Bob Hope joke:

    "Ya gotta give those British credit........otherwise they'll take cash!" :D

    It took 'em a while, but they did pay us back. That's more than most contries did.

    ...of course, they haven't finished paying back their World War ONE debt - haven't even made a payment since the thirties...
