    George Bush was sitting in his office wondering whom to invade next when his telephone rang .

    'Hello, Mr. Bush!' a heavily accented voice said, 'This is Gurmukh from Phagwara, District Kapurthala, Punjab I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring the war on you!'

    'Well, Gurmukh,' Bush replied, 'This is indeed important news! How big is your army'

    'Right now,' said Gurmukh, after a moment's calculation, 'there is myself, my cousin Sukhdev, my next door neighbour Bhagat, and the entire kabaddi team from the gurudwara. That makes eight'

    Bush paused. 'I must tell you, Gurmukh that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command.'

    'Arrey O! Main kya..' said Gurmukh. 'I'll have to ring you back!'

    Sure enough, Gurmukh rang again the next day.

    'Mr. Bush, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne...... We've modified Amrik's tractor by adding a couple of shotguns, sticking on some wings and the pind's generator. Four school pass boys from Malpur have joined us as well!'

    Bush was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. 'I must tell you, Gurmukh, that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter
    planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to

    TWO MILLION!'

    'Tera pala hove....' said Gurmuk, 'I'll have to ring you back.'

    Sure enough, Gurmukh called again the next day.

    'Kiddan, Mr.Bush! I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war.'

    'I'm sorry to hear that,' said Bush. 'Why the sudden change of heart'

    'Well,' said Gurmukh, 'we've all had a long chat over a couple of lassi's, and decided there's no way we can feed two million prisoners of wars'




    NOW THAT'S CALLED CONFIDENCE...

    They are confident, but a little hard headed. (sort of like me)

    confidence itself can sometimes bring that kind of thing.. it's like.. over-confidence.

    Sorry, i'm having my little 6:30 AM musing time right now.

    Here are a few sardar jokes as a cherry topping:-

    ***************************************************************
    Tech Support: "I need you to right-click on the Open Desktop."
    Customer "Ok."
    Tech Support: "Did you get a pop-up menu?"
    Customer: "No."
    Tech Support: "Ok. Right click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?"
    Customer "No."
    Tech Support:: "Ok, sir. Can you tell me what you have done up until this point?"
    Customer: "Sure, you told me to write 'click' and I wrote 'click'."
    ........................................................
    This letter is from Banta Singh of Punjab to Mr. Bill Gates of Microsoft Subject:
    Problems with my new computer
    Dear Mr. Bill Gates,
    We have bought a computer for our home and we have found some problems, which I want to bring to your notice.
    1. There is a button 'start' but there is no "stop" button. We request you to check this.
    2. We find there is 'Run' in the menu. One of my friends clicked 'run ' he ran upto Amritsar! So, we request you to change that to "sit", so that we can click that by sitting.
    3. One doubt is whether any 're-scooter' is available in system? I find only 're-cycle', but I own a scooter at my home.
    4. There is 'Find' button but it is not working properly. My wife lost the door key and we tried a lot trace the key with this ' find' button, but was unable to trace. Please rectify this problem.
    5. My child learnt 'Microsoft word' now he wants to learn 'Microsoft sentence', so when you will provide that?
    6. I brought computer, CPU, mouse and keyboard, but there is only one icon which shows 'MY Computer': when you will provide the remaining items?
    7. It is surprizing that windows says 'MY Pictures' but there is not even a single photo of mine. So when will you keep my photo in that.
    8. There is 'MICROSOFT OFFICE' what about 'MICROSOFT HOME' since I use the PC at home only.
    9. You provided "My Recent Documents". When you will provide "My Past Documents"?
    10. You provide "My Network Places". For God shake please do not provide "My Secret Places". I do not want to let my wife know whre I go after my office hours.
    Regards, Banta

    I don't know but i do not feel the comfortable with the idea of adding 'sardar' to any damn joke. Does it sound more funny !!
    Strange to find such jokes on SPN !!

    Well...my personal point of view....Absolutely no offenses to any one !

    yeah I agree with you entirely and feel the same discomfort. But the usual "oh its just plain harmless humour" arguments will surface again. Please note this is my personal opinion.
