VCarter has it, I believe.
Now, can I sue the Greek government for sending over all that yogurt? (Can't stand the stuff, myself.)

Can't wait for Iran (aka Persia) to sue Greece for reparations …

We… Latin Americans… were thinking to do the same with Spain and Portugal… (smile)

They're also running out of time if they want to try and collect back child support from the troops occupying them at the time… ;-)
