It's a game where you set up a chain of people, and
whisper some message in the ear of the first one, who
whispers it to the next one, etc. When it gets to the
far end you compare it with the original message,
usually with amusing results due to accumulation of
errors along the way.

Not really. That comment isn't directed at the US, but at the
last few NZ governments, who seem to have been bent on privatising
all our public assets and selling them to big US companies. If
it goes on like that, you're going to own the whole country!
