Magpie Watch III

Galley Reader P.G. sends in these two clips, which are related to our ongoing Magpie Watch:
6/1/2005 5:16pm: I MIGHT AS WELL BE THE FIRST: One analysis of the Dutch referendum result: They are the Knights that say "Nee!"
--Andrew Sullivan

6/1/2005: 11:30am: Here is what we say to those who support the EU constitution:

"NEE! Nee! NEE! NEE! NnnnnEE! Nee! Nee!

We will say 'nee' again to you, if you do not appease us. The country that says 'nee' demands...a shrubbery! One that looks nice. And not TOO expensive."
--Huffington Toast

Update, 2:33 p.m.:
06/01/05 01:24 p.m. Dutch: We are the Knights who say . . . Nee
--Captain's Quarters

Of course, the Dutch is pronounced "nay," but don't let that get in the way of the (weak) jokes.
