During the recent royal wedding, the millions around the world saw that Prince William chose to wear a uniform that included the famous British "red coat."

Many people have asked, "Why did the British wear red coats in battle?"
A long time ago, Britain and France were at war. During one battle, the French captured a British Colonel. They took him to their headquarters, and the French General began to question him. Finally, as an afterthought, the French General asked, "Why do you British officers all wear red coats? Don't you know the red material makes you easier targets for us to shoot at?"

In his casual, matter-of-fact, way, the officer informed the General that the reason British officers wear red coats is so that if they are wounded, the blood won't show, and the men they are leading won't panic.



And that is why, from that day forward, all French Army officers wear brown trousers.

Discover Seattle! / And advert with a diference
« on: Feb 12 12 10:14 »
Advert for Siemens dishwasher ......

Across Germany’s northern-most border with Denmark you'll find an incredible superstore called Fleggaard. There, you can buy everything you need - tubs of gummi bears, cases of wine, industrial strength dishwashing soap - at prices 30% cheaper than you'll find in Denmark . It is Denmark 's Costco, packaged as a German loophole. This is their advertisement! The 100+ women do stunts in the air - while free-falling - holding hands to spell out "Half-off on Dishwasher at Fleggaard." You'd be hard-pressed to find a man in Denmark who hasn't seen and fallen in love with this commercial. It was geared strictly to men. The ad is real! Here is a link to simply the best advertisement ever made. Honestly. It's awesome.

Discover Seattle! / Lewinsky and Kaczynski
« on: Jan 08 12 10:48 »
The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style section called the Style Invitational. The requirements this week were to use the two words, "Lewinsky" (the Intern) and "Kaczynski," (the Unabomber) in the same limerick. Now, remember, the following winning entries were actually printed verbatim in the newspaper, no bleeps or xxxs:
 
Third place:
There once was a girl named Lewinsky
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
'Twas Hail to the Chief
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.
 
Second place:
Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress
And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky.
 
And the winning entry:
Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known,
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter,
When deciding how best to be blown.
