No it doesn't. It means "a lot". As in, "Bill Gates has a shitload of dollars". humanUser talk:Human 17:19, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

UK TV ads[edit]

Why is California touting ( with TV ads ) for immigrants from UK? SusanPurrrrrrr 17:22, 29 January 2008 (EST)

I dunno, but it could be "white and speak English" is a factor. Who is running the ads? humanUser talk:Human 18:36, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Well, the guvnor appears. It's a series of sun bronzed 20-30 year olds playing, with some really crappy puns on eg. board meetings (surf boards/skate boards) etc. etc. SusanPurrrrrrr 18:48, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Where might such ads be viewed? A Statesian might be able to parse the polimitics involved. humanUser talk:Human 19:10, 29 January 2008 (EST)
As far as I know only on UK commercial stations there might be a UKer here who can record & upload one. They've been going for about a week or so. I suspect you might be right - all the young & pretties are white (but tanned) as far as I remember. SusanPurrrrrrr 19:17, 29 January 2008 (EST)
Ah, thanks. "Come to Kalifornia and help keep our Great State white and Inglish-speaking, and in return you may replace your Lennonesque English rain tan with one of our fabulouz Kalifornia bronze models!" Oh, maybe you (or a friend) could tape one and transcribe the words for us? humanUser talk:Human 19:28, 29 January 2008 (EST)

Googled & only got [1] Yahoo. I disagree with the 'advertising tourism' comment cause it seems to concentrate on work related (bad) puns. SusanPurrrrrrr 20:04, 29 January 2008 (EST)

The advert is easily found on YouTube (although it beats me why people want to upload adverts). The website it's promoting is visitcalifornia.com, which is a tourism website, so I think all the "work" talk is just a cheesy joke. The ad does seem to portraying an overtly Aryan & affluant vision of California, but the website does include some stuff about diversity.

C'mon...we all know that Arnold is not native, he's an invasive species. Researcher 08:54, 22 February 2009 (EST)

Too short to keep[edit]

Delete? Yes? No? At least mark it as a stub, if not. Maybe redirect "California" to the fun page. Nullahnung (talk) 21:19, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

I'd say stub. --Whyhow (talk) 04:46, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
