An English Prisoner

An English prisoner of war was held by the Germans. The Englishman was shot all over the place, and okay until one day when the German told him, “Englander, your arm is infected with gangrene we must cut it off.” The English prisoner said, “Well, okay, but could you drop it over England when you go bombing.” The German replied, “Yeah that will not be a problem.” A few weeks later the German tells the Englishman that they have to cut his other arm off. The Englishman says, “Well, could drop it over England like you did last time.” “Yeah, that will be done,” says the German. The next day the German tells him that they have to cut his leg off. Once again the Brit says, “Well, could you do the same as before.” The German replies, “yeah” The next the German tells him they have to cut his other leg. “Well,” begins the Brit, “could you just…” The German snapped, “No! We think you are trying to escape!”

Italian Guy

This elderly Italian guy goes to his parish priest and asked if he would hear his confession. The priest assured him that he would, and the two took up the customary positions on either side of the divider. “Well, Father,” began the old man, “At the beginning of World War II a beautiful Jewish woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the Germans. So I hid her in my attic, and they never found her.” “That’s a wonderful thing,” interjected the priest, “But it’s certainly nothing you need to confess!” “It’s gets worse Father,” continued the elderly fellow, “I was weak and I told her that she had to repay me for hiding her, by providing me with sexual favors.” The priest contemplated this disclosure for a minute and then responded, “Well, it was a very difficult time, and you took a very large risk. You would have suffered terribly at their hands if the Germans had found you hiding her. I know that God, in his wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and the evil of your acts, and judge you kindly.” “Thank you Father,” said the old man. “That’s a load off my mind! Can I ask another question?” “Of course, my son,” said the priest. The old man asked, “Do I have to tell her that the war is over?”

Louisiana Training

During camouflage training in Louisiana, a private disguised as a tree trunk had made a sudden move that was spotted by a visiting general. “You simpleton!” the officer barked. “Don’t you know that by jumping and yelling the way you did, you could have endangered the lives of the entire company?” “Yes sir,” the solder answered apologetically. “But, if I may say so, I did stand still when a flock of pigeons used me for target practice. And I never moved a muscle when a large dog peed on my lower branches. But when two squirrels ran up my pants leg and I heard the bigger say, “Let’s eat one now and save the other until winter’ —that did it!”

Pensacola Naval Air Station

As we stood in formation at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, our Flight Instructor said, “All right! All you dummies fall out.” As the rest of the squad wandered away, I remained at attention. The instructor walked over until he was eye-to-eye with me, and then just raised a single eyebrow. I smiled and said, “Sure was a lot of ‘em, huh sir?”

Indian Chief

An Indian chief is driving his Cadillac somewhere at Nevada. Suddenly his car gets broken. He examines it, and reveals that a technician must be called. But the chief has only $4, and no credit card. So he gathers some wood, makes a fire and signals his tribe with its smoke: “Hey, send somebody to my location with $500!” The tribe accepts this signal, but to make sure in its meaning, signals back – once again, with the smoke: “OK, chief, but why so much ?” At this moment a ground test of nuclear bomb is being held on the test field nearby. A huge mushroom-like cloud of smoke rises into the sky… The tribe signals: “Ok, Ok, chief, we just wondered, why to be so angry?”

General

A General retired after 35 years and realized his life-long dream of buying a bird-hunting estate in South Dakota. He invited an old friend to visit for a week of pheasant-shooting. The friend was in awe of the General’s bird dog, “Sarge.” The dog could point, flush and retrieve with the very best, and the friend offered to buy the dog. The General declined, saying that Sarge was the best bird dog he had ever owned and that he wouldn’t part with him at any price. A year later the same friend returned for another week of hunting, and was surprised to find the General breaking in a new dog. “What happened to ol’ “Sarge?” he asked. “Had to shoot him,” grumbled the General. A friend came to hunt with me and couldn’t remember the dog’s name. He kept calling him Colonel. After that, all the dog would do was sit on his ass and bark.”

Visitor in Kuwait

A visitor, returning to Kuwait for the first time since the Gulf War, was impressed by a sociological change. On previous visits she noted that women customarily walked about 5 paces behind their husbands. She observed that the men now walked over 20 paces BEHIND their wives! She approached one of the women for an explanation: “What enabled women here to achieve this marvellous reversal of roles?” “Land mines,” replied the Kuwaiti woman.

Donald Rumsfeld

So, Donald Rumsfeld is briefing George Bush in the Oval Office. “Oh and finally, sir, three Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq today.” Bush goes pale, his jaw hanging open in stunned disbelief. He buries his face in his hands, muttering “My God…My God”. “Mr. President,” says Cheney, “we lose soldiers all the time, and it’s terrible. But I’ve never seen you so upset. What’s the matter?” Bush looks up and says…”How many is a Brazilian?”

Recruits

Recruits got a shock when their Army basic-training instructor turned out to be an attractive female sergeant. Her assistant, however, was a burly, hawk-nosed veteran whose glare could freeze water. At the end of training, the attractive instructor congratulated the recruits and said that if there was anything she could do for us, just ask. From the back, a voice called out, “How about a kiss from the sergeant?” “Sure,” she replied, raising her hand to quell the laughter. “But I’ll let my assistant take care of it!”

Air Bases

On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, “What time is it?” The tower responded, “Who is calling?” The aircraft replied, “What difference does it make?” The tower replied, “It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o’clock. If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours. If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells. If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3. If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it’s Thursday afternoon.”
