"Laugh and the world laughs with you, trip over a big bag of garbage and fall on the sidewalk breaking
a bone or two and you fall alone!"
Funny English Video Thirteen
"Bomb New York. Please!"

This is another story from the Onion News Network. (See
Video Number 9 for
more news from The Onion.) This news report is about a
country music song that seems to be putting the U.S. against Al Qaeda. However, if you listen carefully, you will
see the people in this video WANT Al Qaeda to attack New York City! It's actually showing the southern
U.S. (where country music is very popular and which is the home of former President George W. Bush) against
big northern cities like New York.
Here are some sentences that I thought were very funny, because they show how amazingly selfish some people can be.
"I do think if every one in New York is killed it will bring the country together"
"I mean he (Osama bin Laden) could just reduce New York City to a pile o' rubble - it ain't gonna affect us much."
And from the song itself: "Bomb New York! Light up the New York sky, like the Fourth of July!"
They even give specific information on how to poison all of the water of the city! This video is meant to make people
think. (Remember, The Onion is 100% fake!) What does it really mean to love your country? Is big, bold talk the
most important thing? Or do actions speak louder than words?
