TheFrench President is sitting in his office when his telephone rings.

'Hallo, Mr. Sarkozy!' a heavily accented voice said. 'This is Paddy down

at the Harp Pub in County Clare , Ireland . I am ringing to inform you

that we are officially declaring war on you! We voted to reject the Lisbon

treaty!'

'Well, Paddy,' Sarkozy replied, 'This is indeed important news! How big is

your army?'

'Right now,' says Paddy, after a moment's calculation, 'there is myself,

me Cousin Sean, me next door neighbour Seamus, and the entire darts team

from the pub. That makes eleven!'

Sarkozy paused. 'I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 100,000 men in my

army waiting to move on my command.'

'Begoora!' says Paddy. 'I'll have to ring you back.'

Sure enough, the next day, Paddy calls again. 'Mr. Sarkozy, the war is

still on. We have managed to get us some infantry equipment!'

'And what equipment would that be Paddy?' Sarkozy asks.

'Well, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Murphy's farm tractor.'

Sarkozy sighs amused. 'I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 6,000 tanks and

5,000 armoured personnel carriers. Also, I have increased my army to

150,000 since we last spoke.'

'Saints preserve us!' says Paddy. 'I'll have to get back to you.'

Sure enough, Paddy rings again the next day. 'Mr. Sarkozy, the war is

still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We have modified

Jackie McLaughlin's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the

cockpit, and four boys from the Shamrock Bar have joined us as well!'

Sarkozy was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. 'I must tell

you, Paddy, that I have 100 bombers and 200 fighter planes. My military

bases are surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And

since we last spoke, I have increased my army to 200,000!'

'Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!' says Paddy, 'I will have to ring you back.'

Sure enough, Paddy calls again the next day. 'Top o' the mornin', Mr.

Sarkozy! I am sorry to inform you that we have had to call off the war.'

'Really? I am sorry to hear that,' says Sarkozy. 'Why the sudden change of

heart?'

'Well,' says Paddy, 'we had a long chat over a few pints of Guinness and

packets of crisps, and we decided there is no fookin' way we can feed

200,000 prisoners."

We just smack the ball and run the bases over here........we don't get to keep the bats:cooldevil::cooldevil:

But I bet that would make a more interesting game.........especially if you were the one playing on the base!!:cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:
