We recently sprayed the seats on our fleet of buses with Scotchgard™, but still ask that riders use care when eating or drinking.

False, I have not come to talk about the inferior dish known as lasagna, instead I have come to spread the salvation of the delectable dish called multiple names including, but not limited to, lasaga, lasagn, lasagan, lasganas, lasgn, or lasgaasansgsan. If you do not accept our religious message then I will be forced to call down the power of gordfield upon you.

My mistake. Apologies.

You must do more then just apologize to be saved by the lasgan. You must REPENT

Raises his arm and taps the sign above his head

Just stay behind the yellow line while the coach is in motion.

*The Admiral of the Realm of the Whispering Winds and the ship's crew quietly file in...*
*The Admiral orders,
"Boatswain pipe the crew amidships!"*
*The Boatswain replies, "Aye Aye Admiral!" Blows on his whistle and shouts, "ATTENTION ON DECK!!"*
*The Admiral nods at the Boatswain, turns toward the crew, clears his throat and says, "Stand easy." ... then continues reading from a scrolled document.*

Please join me in CELEBRATING the approval and completion of the Embassy exchange with Bus Stop.

HATS OFF! "Three on Three" for Bus Stop... HOOYAH! HOOYAH! HOOYAH!

Expressing their willingness to enter into a diplomatic relationship with our Region, Bus Stop has, on this day, been officially recognized as a

"Friend of the Realm".

Signed and Sealed, on this the 16th Day of November, In the Year of Our Lord 2018,

Admiral Jacque Tre'phon Joseph, Founder and King of the Realm of the Whispering Winds

*The Admiral looks to the Boatswain and orders, "Dismiss the crew."*
*The Boatswain replies, "Aye Aye Admiral!" faces the crew and shouts, "Crew, Hand Salute!", raising his hand sharply to his forehead*
*The Admiral returns the salute to His crew and walks off as the Boatswain orders,
"Crew, DISMISS!"*


I am your interim Ambassador from Realm of the Whispering Winds.

A new Ambassador will be appointed soon but we encourage you to send an Embassy (Ambassador) nation to our region as well.

I will be happy to have conversations with all of you but please remember, I will not discuss regional politics nor negotiate with anyone who is not an Officer or who has been duly appointed and identified ahead of time as being an Official of the region.

With that being said, is it "Exact Change Only"?
