    A pilot is shot down over Germany by 'the boogy man'. Upon landing in a forest, he breaks his leg. The Germans pick him up and take him to a POW hospital. They say they have to amputate. Before they begin their work, the pilot looks up and stops them.
    "After you cut off my leg will you have one of your pilots drop it over my base in England?" the pilot says. The Germans amputate and drop the leg over his base in England. the next week the Germans have to cut off his other leg. Again the pilot asks them to drop over his base in England and the Germans do it.
    The next week the Germans have to amputate an arm. Again the pilot asks them to drop it over his base in England. This time the German doctors' reply is different.
    "Nein," the doctor says, "this we can't do anymore."
    "Why not?" asks the pilot.
    "We think you are trying to escape!"

    The following is a transcript of a letter about a certain parcel of goodies, bound for Pvt. Dusty Fiorito of the Lake Superior Regt. Canadian Forces Overseas. The parcel in question was sent just prior to his parachute training in England and his transfer to the 1st Canadian Para Bn.

    Dusty Fiorito was a very well known and popular jazz musician in Thunder Bay, Ontario from the time he returned from overseas until his death in 1995. This letter is reproduced here with permission of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion Association. It appeared in their November 2002 newsletter:

    Dec. 30, 1943

    Mr. A. Fiorito
    Fort William, Ontario.

    Dear Sir:

    I have to advise you that a parcel bearing your return address with postage stamps to the value of $1.00 affixed, date stamped "West Fort William, Dec. 28, 1943" has been received at this office in a damaged condition addressed to -

    H.45871
    Pte. Fiorito, L.A.
    1st Batt. Lake Superior Regt.
    C.A.C.

    The customs declaration indicates the parcel to contain candy, fruit cake, chewing gum and sausage. However, in addition to these articles it had actually contained one 12 oz. bottle of cherry whisky, which had become broken in transit allowing its contents to escape.

    As the transmission of spiritous or intoxicating liquor by mail is strictly prohibited, it is requested that you refrain from including such articles in future parcels forwarded by post.

    In this case the broken bottle has been removed and the remainder of the parcel has been repacked and forwarded overseas.

    Yours truly,

    R. Stephen, Major, D.A.D.P.S.
    Officer Commanding
    Base Post Office
    Canada

    Makes me think of the Hitler Sketch on the Carol Burnette Show. Tim Conway is playing a Gestapo interrogator and Lyle Wagoner is playing a downed American Pilot. Conway gets nowhere until he pulls out a little Hitler Hand Puppet. (Wagoner did not know Conway had the puppet, and loses it. ) If you never saw the sketch, no description will do. If you saw it you are laughing now at the memory.

    I didn't see this one, but I recently saw a clip of Conway and Harvey Korman with the Novocaine and Conway poking himself repeatedly... Korman almost lost it it at that one, too.

    As for othe original joke here... I wasn't expecting the punchline so it hit me as extra comical. :happy:

    Ok I think that joke was a bit off but I guess it was worth a chuckle or two.

    That was a good one, if my FIL was still around I would have to relay it to him as he was a pilot at that time but never flew over Germany.
