Arabic.

You gotta love Robin Williams......
Even if he's nuts!
Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan.
What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up
and repeat this message.

Robin Williams' plan...
(Hard to argue with this logic!)

"I see a lot people yelling for peace
but I have not heard of a plan for
peace. So, here's one plan."

1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in
their affairs,
past & present.
You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic,
Hussein,
and the rest of those "good ole boys", we will never "interfere"
again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting
with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines.
They don't want us there.
We would station troops at our borders.
No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and
leave.
We'll give them a free trip home.
After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported
immediately,
regardless of whom or where they are.
They're illegal!!!

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90
days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will
be allowed in.
If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here.
Asylum would never be available to anyone.
We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5! ) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the
bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home
baby.

6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy
wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will
require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou
will have to cope for a while.

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel
for their oil.
If they don't like it, we'll go someplace else.
They can go somewhere else to sell their production.
(About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be
enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world,
we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds,
rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is
stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little,
if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We
don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building
would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no
one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer.

11) The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE...
Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

The Statue of Liberty is no longer
saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.
She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of
me?' "

They can delete both. I didn't know it posted. The board was struggling to stay up earlier.

I kind of thought that last line sounded like the only thing Robin Williams would actually have said. The rest was too serious and straightforward.

It's kind of like the alleged "Revocation of Independence" attributed to John Cleese. :shrug:

I have seen John Cleese perform a "Revocation of Independence" piece live, though. Whether or not he wrote it, I don't know, but he definitely performed it. I believe it was on an episode of Saturday Night Live, during the intro skit, when he and Michael Palin were hosting.

While they did appear on SNL in 1997, the only mention I can find of them working togther is the fact that Cleese seemingly forgot the classic "Parrot" sketch. I remember them butchering that classic, but nothing comes to mind that relates to the above link. That said, I have been known to watch SNL while ferschnickered, and that could affect my memory.

Is anyone gullible enough to think Mork actually wrote this?

I'll have to do some more research. The piece I remember seeing was from much more recently than 1997, so it might not have been from SNL. So far, all the references I've seen to it have been reproductions on various blogs and bulletin boards, but the odd thing is, prior to this discussion, the only time I've ever encountered this particular piece was when I saw it performed on television - I'd never seen it in print. I did find one reference from somebody from Oxford saying that Cleese didn't write it, but that he did read it aloud to an American audience in 2005, and that's about the time I remember seeing it. Likely, since the thing had gained some popularity on the internet, and since it was already being widely attributed to him, Cleese probably discovered the "letter" and, deciding it sounded like something right up his alley (it's certainly his style), decided to perform it live for an audience. I just can't remember what show it was on.

That makes sense. If you happen to run across a copy of the video, let me know or pass on the link. I'd love to see it. I've been a Cleese fan since the early days of Monty Python...
