    In Finland we have same joke, it jokes about refugees from Somalia.

    But one more joke about America:
    What is common with an American beer and having sex in a canoe?

    Well, maybe. But "correct" answer is: Both are f***ing close to water.

    Not quiet Roel, actually,
    "Rommel Special 88"
    (immediately follow by the response from all playing of,
    BAIL OUT")Brit tank crews had macabre sense of
    Humour!

    No.

    These people are trying to save the lives of innocent civilians. Making fun of the immense strain in their profession isn't very sophisticated in my opinion.

    Sometimes a sick sence of humour is what gets you through these times.
    I like it.

    Yes Roel, "We will all go together when we go",
    Go to Google or similar, type in the words above and you've got it. Got it and printed it!
    Of course, you do realise that the "Bomb Squad" came from
    an Army publication?

    I was refering to the picture above of the Bomb Squad, pointing out that the people who do the bomb jobs are the ones who made up the picture!

    I've talked to several EOD types, military and civilian, and they all think that is hilarious. Just like the t-shirt that is imprinted on the back:

    BOMB SQUAD
    If you see me running,
    try to keep up.

    Thanks Tom, beginning to think GP and myself being ex army were out on our own! This kind of humour was there in the Falklands war, a wounded marine said to the medic, "I've lost my leg"
    The medic replied "No you've not, it's over there!"
    I do have a book of Falkland war cartoons, if I thought they would be appreciated I'd post a few.
    If you really want a laugh go to our Reg. web site, go to community guest pages, then to "Humourous tales from tank crews" , see what they really talk about!

    What's the difference between a daft Dutchman and a drainpipe?

    "I don't know, what is the difference between a "Daft Dutchman" and a "Drain Pipe?" Do I really want to know this?.
    Kindly leave the stage!
    Please tell me the answer I'm in suspenders!
