A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance.

Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis only to find a British soldier selling regimental ties.

The Taliban asked, "Do you have water?"

The soldier replied, "There is no water, the well is dry. Would you like to buy a tie instead? They are only £5."

The Taliban shouted, "You idiot infidel! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!"

"OK," said the soldier, "It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that, and
that I am a much better human being than you.

If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find our Sergeant's Mess. It has all the ice cold water you need. Inshallah."



Cursing him, the Taliban staggered away over the hill.

Several hours later he staggered back, collapsed with dehydration & rasped:

"They won't let me in without an effin' tie!"

Of course, I find a little hard to believe a taliban would use the word "effin'"

I'd think they would say something more esoteric like "bloody" or maybe even "gosh darned".

Too bad you dont speak the language. Theres some very "saucy" phrasing in there. They also mention that at least one tank (the ship is a tanker, I'm guessing) was punctured in the impact.

I can imagine that exasperated Russian sailor language must be 'salty'.

Frankly, I'd be hard pressed to come up with any combination of nationality / occupation / state of being that elicit anything surpassing it. Any thoughts from the THREAD?
