Message in a Bottle

Hilarious English reaction upon discovery of a bottled message from New York - accusing the proponent of littering:
"I recently found your bottle while taking a scenic walk on the beach by Poole Harbour. While you may consider this some profound experiment on the path and speed" of "oceanic currents, I have another name for it, litter."

"You Americans don't seem to be happy unless you are mucking about somewhere"

My favorite part of the story is surely the name of the surly English chap - Henry Biggelsworth. Classic.

Never received a response to messages we sent from Cape Spear back in November 2003. Wonder where those empty Gatorade bottles are floating this evening.
