   HopeandGlory posted on Main Page The Lobby  I thought y'all might enjoy this:

by John Cleese - British writer, actor and tall person

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

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 “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be alright, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

A final thought - “ Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC”.

   Iacta alea est  633 Squadron....not a bad flim. The one scab I pick at is (being half Norwegian myself ) is that George Chakiris (Bernardo in West Side Story ) looks like no Squarehead I ever met.

   BirdsNest  Prayers are most welcomed. He is still hospitalized. It's been forever. Still waiting on the pressure sores to heal. They have healed 2", but the wound was to the bone so there is a way to go yet. I am doing my best to keep up.

   BirdsNest  Thank you all for adding Hagar to your prayers. He is doing as well as can be expected. I asked the doctor about the cancer, what is it doing while we are trying to get the pressure sores healed. He didn't have much of an answer for me. Pressure sores HAVE to be healed before chemo. Period. PT has been in the past week working with him, strengthening his legs. He said he stood up yesterday. I am not sure I believe that-he was also talking about Woodstock,and hating his chickens. I think he must have been on some good drugs.
