Immigration officials at the Miami airport arrested Paul O'Grady for sounding too Cuban. They took two hours to verify his identity as British... maybe they should've just looked at his passport...

This is what Paul O'Grady looks like.

LOL, yeah, no, he's from Manchester or Liverpool in England, so you wouldn't really hear the word 'craic' in English comedians.
I CAN'T believe he go mistaken for Cuban??! frantics.gif

That is one of the most ridiculous things I have heard...seriously.....and even if he did sound Cuban, so what, he is a British Citizen!
