A comment from my buddy Wayne, presumably a possesor of super-enhanced brain chemistry as a former Green Beret, to whom I forwarded the Google thing:

I read a joke in Newsweek or US News that is going around that is something like this… Q. How many French soldiers does it take to defend Paris? A. Nobody knows, they’ve never tried it. Still, I prefer my explanation of why the French make lousy soldiers. We say “Fire!” in English to start the battle. The Spanish say “Fuego!” The French say “Fleu.” Enough said.


Wayne also just got a new black lab puppy named Thumper, which can be seen here.
