Why are there so many trees along the streets of Paris?
So the Germans can march in the shade.
An F-111 was flying escort with a B-52 and generally making a nuisance of himself by flying rolls around the lumbering old bomber.
The message for the B-52 crew was, "Anything you can do, I can do better."
Not to be outdone, the bomber pilot announced that he would rise to the challenge.
The B-52 continued its flight, straight and level, however.
Perplexed, the fighter pilot asked, "So?
What did you do?"
"We just shut down two engines."

The unit engineer had just finished a talk on introducing mechanization in fatigue details.
A sergeant reported thoughtfully: "Sir, I just discovered something that does the work of fifty men."
"What is it?"
the officer got interested.
"Two hundred soldiers."
An Israeli soldier who just enlisted asked the Commanding Officer for a 3-day pass.
The CO says "Are you crazy?
You just join the Israeli army, and you already want a 3-day pass?
You must do something spectacular for that recognition!"
So the soldier comes back a day later in an Arab tank!
The CO was so impressed, he asked "How did you do it?"
"Well, I jumped in a tank, and went toward the border with the Arabs.
I approached the border, and saw an Arab tank.
I put my white flag up, the Arab tank put his white flag up.
I said to the Arab soldier, "Do you want to get a three-day pass?
So we exchanged tanks!"
The soldiers are tired and lonely after spending weeks in enemy territory.
To entertain them, the Major called for this sexy dancer from the nearby town.
She came, danced and when the first dance was done, the soldiers went mad.
They clapped for 5 minutes.
For her second number, she stripped and danced in sheer bra and G string.
This time the applause went for 10 minutes.
The next number she danced topless, and this time the applause went on and on.
The Major had to come on stage and ask them to quiet down for the grand finale.
For her last number, she was to strip completely and dance naked.
The Major expected the soldiers to make enough noise to bring the roof down.
But ten minutes later, there is no clapping and the dancer comes backstage.
The Major asks her, "What happened?
How come there was no clapping this time?"
She replied with a wicked smile, "Major, how do you expect those poor boys to clap with one hand?"
