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.

A private is alone on sentry duty when the phone rings in his box.
Hello?' a voice shouts down the phone.
'Are there many vehicles in the officer's car park?' The sentry steps out of his box and looks across the road, where a solitary Bentley is parked.
He goes back to the box and answers the caller.
'Only that fat bastard General Jackson's car,' he says.
'Do you know who you're talking to?' booms the voice down the line.
'This is General Jackson!' 'Do you know who you're talking to?' the private replies, completely unflustered.
'No,' General Jackson answers.
'Well, fuck off then, fat arse,' the private replies.

The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army.
The soldier picked it up, smiled and said, 'That's it!'

I said to the Arab soldier, 'Do you want to get a three-day pass?
So we exchanged tanks!'
