One of them is known for speaking with an annoying accent in movies.

15. Whats rude is the common practice of putting down country folk, who dont bother no body, with silly namecalling. Tit for Tat is how I see it.

Tanik, Obviously you're forgetting what country you are in. It is ALWAYS OK to make fun of "whitey". "Whitey" however cannot say a word about anyway else... golly gosh, get with the times.

Oh, I almost forgot, you can make fun of Jews and Christians, but not Muslims. (that's an important one)

SICK OF IT    

My comany managed Jim for 10+ years. He was an amazing man. Funny, kind and geneous. However you need to catch him before 1PM. After that JD took over. At the end he was easily a qt a day. Even drunk he was funny. RIP Jim.
