The Norwegian Blogger tells us about "The EU, a Union of Prosperity and Innovation!". There's much good hilarity including the European standard condom, but my fave is:
Not only that, but the Rapid Response Force will soon be able to make the European Union a military match for the United States. The problem is that the army is to be fully integrated and each soldier only to receive orders in his own language, so far we've only been able to find two eight language polyglots that are willing to be drill sergeants so it's slow going. Furthermore each soldier must carry a copy of the committee written "Soldiers Handbook", unfortunately the soldiers handbook dictate a maximum weight that the soldiers can carry, and the book itself exceeds that weight. But SOON it will work PERFECTLY!The poor EU bureaucrats don't get any respect for anything. Even their aspirations for 160 mm units.
The idea is a team of ferocious German soldiers egged on by British drill sergeants and fed by French cooks, all moving forward in perfect order while trying to kill the enemy. Some people claim that instead you got French soldiers egged on by Italian drill sergeants, and fed by British cooks, moving forward in total disarray while trying to surrender. Such claims are in clear violation of directive 9801/404, and repeated behaviour will force us to consider proposing a motion for a hearing about disciplinary reactions!
