I, for one, welcome your new Kzinti overlord
If I ruled the world as an absolute dictator one of the first things I'd do - even before making use of a mobile phone while driving a death penalty offence, even before sending Scott Allie and Georges Jeanty into exile on one of the moons of Saturn, even before making it illegal for US TV shows to make episodes where the characters visit a weird version of England that bears no relationship to the real country - would be to have all fanfics where Spike uses the exclamation "Cor!" removed from the Web and the authors severely chastised and forced to rewrite them.

Except 'Sunnydale Passions', of course, where I'm taking the piss (and any other parody fics in the same vein, and fics in which Spike is himself taking the piss when he says it).

Certainly! And the publishers of Now! and Heat! magazines would be on the same one-way space probe.

"even before sending Scott Allie and Georges Jeanty into exile on one of the moons of Saturn,"

Oh god, If only! :D

Vote for me as absolute ruler of the world!

I trust, that before doing this, you would make absolutely certain that the moon in question was uninhabited? After all, you don't want to start your Rulership of the World with a highly pissed-off alien battle fleet arriving....

Good point. Yes, it would have to be a moon that was totally devoid of intelligent life (and, after their exile there, it would remain so).

Do I detect dissatisfaction with my benevolent rule?

Don't forget a ruthless re-editing of the Mary Poppins movie to replace Julie Android and Dick Van Dyke with people who have realistic British accents. Or nuke Disney from orbit, it may be the only way to be sure.

Indeed.

Not just TV shows. Comics too.

The Season 8 comics portrayal of the UK was pathetic - but they were even worse in their depiction of Germany.

Can we throw in professional tv writers who use the word "dampener" when they should be using "damper"?

That's not one that I have encountered but I'll happily allocate them berths on the one-way mission to Titan.

Are you saying American tv is unrealistic in it's portrayals of our British 'cousins'? Cor blimey! *g*

If it makes it any better - they screw up our own country just as much. I mean, are there really mountains and palm trees in Oklahoma?
