Be aware that the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from RUN to HIDE. The only two higher levels in France are Surrender and Collaborate. The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralysing their military capability.

It's not only the French that are on a heightened level of alert, the Italians have increased their alert level from "shout loudly and excitedly" to "elaborate military posturing". Two more levels remain, "ineffective combat operations" and "change sides".

The Germans also increased their alert state from "disdainful arrogance" to "dress in uniform and sing marching songs". They have two higher levels, "invade a neighbour" and "lose".

Seeing this reaction in continental Europe the Americans have gone from "isolationism" to "find somewhere else in the middle east ripe for regime change". Their remaining higher alert states are "take on the world" and "ask the British for help".

Finally here in GB we've gone from "pretend nothing's happening" to "make another cup of tea". Our higher levels are "remain resolutely cheerful" and "win".

:lol: ...great post, absolutely hilarious. ... you can never have too many jokes about the French. Quoting Frankie Boyle on Mock the Week about things a French person would never say... *in weak French accent* "Of course we knew it was hopeless, but we kept fighting"

None of them are accurate, they are not supposed to be. Whether you find them funny or not is largely irrelevant. It's one of those things we call 'a joke'. Don't like it? Tough. :)

Say something enough times and people will start to believe you. Say iraq has chemical and nuclear weapons enough times someone will believe you.

If a joke is suppose to be funnny, someone finding it not funny voids the point of the joke, thus not "irrelevant"

Oh I love jokes, but stereotype jokes are just about as funny as racist jokes, they nitpick on common misperseptions.
