I imagine someone's posted this before, but I watched Memphis Belle again last night and always find this joke hilarious:

During World War II, an English pilot was shot down over Germany and sustained major injuries. When the Germans captured the pilot, they had to perform surgery on him and in the process had to remove one of his legs. When the pilot came to and learned of his leg being amputated, he asked that his leg be flown over England and dropped out of the plane, which the Germans grudgingly did.

A few days later, his injuries forced an amputation of his other leg. Again, the pilot asked that his leg be flown over England and dropped out of the plane, an act which again the Germans conceded to him.

A few days after that, more surgery resulted in the amputation of the pilot's right arm. Again the pilot asked that his extremity be flown over England and dropped. This time, however, the Germans replied, "Ni! Zis we cannot do anymore!"

"Why not?", the pilot asked.

The Germans replied, "Ve zink you are trying to escape!"

I have always wondered why in movies the germans are shown as stupid, while in reality they were highly educated.
Just as indians ar shown as the evil ones and cowboys as the good ones. In one year in usa i just saw one indian the good boys did their jobs and exterminated all evil

WhatTheFuc? are you for real?

the guy was telling a joke - and a joke from a film that is set in 1940's when obviously westerners are goingto be putting down germans and japs etc

so yes the "americans " did almost wipe out all the indians - but why the hell bring it up in this thread?

I laughed at the joke in the film, and I'm laughing at the joke in the fourm /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Most jokes put some group down (I'm Scottish/Irish so I'm used to it) and thats part of humour.

Cheer up and don't get so serious.

isn't it amazing how you can't write the abbreviation for that but you can write that!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif (albeit missing the "K")

anyway - talking of legs

whilst reading a book on bader the other week i came across
something that i hadn't heard off - but that most of you have probably heard before- but i'll tell you all again anyway:-

after bader was shot down(collided? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif ) and captured -he ruined one of his wooden legs - ripped it whilst trying to bail out.
the germans liased with the english/raf and arranged for a plane to be given safe passage through france etc, to bring bader one of his spare legs from his base.
not wanting to give the germans the propaganda opportunity (and probably other reasons too) - the RAF refused the safe passage and one bomber dropped it whilst on a mission to raid somewhere or other - the package was dropped into a hail of flak but made it safely to bader. upon recieving the leg bader almost immeadiately escaped from the hospital he was in, but unfortunately did not get too far /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

i heard this wwii story of a guy who lost both legs in a plane accident and went on piloting a fighter,he had this woodden legs with pingpon balls inside for comfort, once gaining altitude the pinpongs started exploting, and he thought somebody was shotting at him, he was captured and the germans let an english plane fly over to drop a pair of woodden legs for the guy. not all germans were bad

The Bader story is a good one. The replacement leg was dropped by the last bomber in a formation on a raid. Bader's original fake leg was later found and reconstructed by the Germans.
