So this has turned into a jokes post now has it? Heard this recently, and loved it...
An Englishman, an American and a German are captured in the desert, and their captors decide to give them a fighting chance to excape, in the spirit of sport, and so they offer the captives a means of transport of their choice. First up is the Englishman, "Give me a dirtbike." So they give him his dirtbike and he goes speeding off through the enemy terrain, darting this way and that to avoid machine gun fire, but after a while a sniper takes him out, and down he goes.
Next up is the American, "Screw that, give me a God damn tank!" So the somewhat lenient captors offer him a tank, and off he goes, chugging away through the sand, safe from machine guns and snipers alike. But a short way in, the tank hits a mine, and goes up in smoke.
Finally, the German. He thinks for a while, and finally says "OK, just give me a duck, and the four suspension springs from a Corvette. The leient and now resourceful captors answer his request with puzzled looks, and watch in amazement as he straps the duck to his head, and attaches the four springs to each of his hands and feet. Then off he goes, bouncing this way and that across the desert, moving too randomly to be vulnerable to machine guns or snipers, and carefully avoiding the mines. Sure enough, he makes it across the enemy terrain into safe ground, and into his own base camp. Later asked about the escapade, he simply responds "In Germany, we call that the four spring duck technique..."
Just in case you've never seen an Audi advert, this is supposed to be a play on "Vorsprung Durch Technik", the Audi slogan. I just thought I'd better reveal this, I know what Americans are like when it comes to the rest of the world...
And in case you're interested, it means "Progress through technology". This has been Roseanne, your guide to the world of facts.
LOL i posted this because i was bored at that time so i just put in anything. i thought people were going to starting flaming on me for being such an idiot but i guess some people understand the story. no need for all that extra crap, facts are facts. amen
The thing about HWA is that none of us have anything better to do than answer questions, and on the occasions where there are no questions we can (or can be bothered to) answer, we float around the "Off-Topic" forum, filling it and each others minds with meaningless drivel.
Keep up the good work, Mr. Freak. The world needs its pointless aspects.
