Not Ghana Fall Fer This
My response: when I trip over the email.
That was good for a *pet rock face palm*, something unique to behold, which you never will iffen you ain't got a pet rock.
The country of Ghana is trying to convince me that they have my best interest at heart.
Even though they have no idea who *I* am.
Witness their latest effort:

and someday someone will decide what Accra is Ghana do...

By heckydarnpoo, I drawd me a response, albeit one both grammatically and geographically challenged:
