"We are sorry our president is an idiot..." hidden on clothes' washing labels !

From snopes.com :

"In April 204, someone called attention to the fact something was a little odd about the care instruction tags found on backpacks and laptop cases produced by manufacturer Tom Bihn of Port Angeles, Washington. Specifically, what was unusual was that the English and French statements on those tags didn't quite match — while both versions included the usual admonitions not to use bleach, not to machine dry, and not to iron the bags, the French-language version included an extra phrase: "NOUS SOMMES DESOLES QUE NOTRE PRESIDENT SOIT UN IDIOT. NOUS N'AVONS PAS VOTE POUR LUI." Roughly translated, this statement reads in English as: "We're sorry our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him."

Hiya

This story just reminded me of the funny things that can be found in google - at first i thought they were urban legends, but then i tried them myself. probably a lot of you have heard these already but...

if you search in google, and click on the i'm feeling lucky button for:

miserable failure
french military victories
weapons of mass destruction

you will find some funny results, and i guess the french and bush thing just reminded me of that
