'The world is flat' in Party

Did you know that the phrase 'The World is Flat' was not first used by Thomas Friedman in his bestselling book but actually in the movie Party starring Peter Sellers in 1968. We were watching the movie last week and saw that the baby elephant in the movie had the words 'The World is Flat' painted on it.

Interesting fact but if policies like the Iraq war are followed en masse, the world will surely be flattened one day even if it is not flat.

Hiren, nice to have you here. Yes, we seem to be heading in that direction. Didn't Nostradamus predict it too?
