Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Monday, April 2

A measured response

During a NATO exercise, a panting Canadian soldier stumbles into his command bunker to report that the enemy tanks are coming. "How far are they?" asks the commander.

"200 metres."

"Easy, easy."

The soldier returns to his post, but after a few minutes he comes back running and reports once again that the tanks are coming. "How far are they?"

"150 metres."

"Stay calm."

The situation repeats itself a few times with the tanks coming closer each time the soldier reports in. Finally the commander gives the order: "See that bullet on top of that shelf? Take it and destroy the tanks."

The soldier grabs the bullet and runs off. After a few minutes he comes back and reports: "The tanks are destroyed."

"Good, good," answers the pleased commander. "Now please put the bullet back on the shelf."
