In yet another example of why you shouldn't use technology when you've had a few too many, a drunken British teenager has been banned from the US for life after sending an unkindly worded email to Barack Obama.

As reported in the Daily Mail, 17-year-old Luke Angel sent the unassuming US President an abusive email calling him "a prick".

Angel told the Daily Mail he'd had a few too many pints before watching a television show about September 11.

For whatever reasons, Angel became a wee bit upset and consequently sent the email to the White House, which was subsequently intercepted by the FBI, who then contacted UK police.

Some local Bobbies then paid Angel a visit, informing him he would never ever be allowed to set foot in the USA.

"I don't really care. My parents aren't very happy about it," Angel said.

"The police who came round took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever."

Bedfordshire Police justified Angel's life-long exclusion on the fact that he sent "an email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language".

This story raises many questions for Folklaw. Now, call us naïve, but how on earth do you send an email to Obama? Is it really that simple (This email address is being protected from spambots.
