IJMC - The Cold War Ends
I don't have much to say about this one, so I'll keep kinda quiet and
just say thanks Jim. I enjoyed lunch yesterday and well, I think that is
the closest I've ever come to being paid for these posts...four years.

The Americans and Russians at the height of the arms race realised that if
they continued in the usual manner they were going to blow up the whole
One day they sat down and decided to settle the whole dispute with one dog
fight. They'd have five years to breed the best fighting dog in the world
and whichever side's dog won would be entitled to dominate the world. The
losing side would have to lay down its arms.
The Russians found the biggest meanest Doberman and Rottweilers in the
world and bred them with the biggest meanest Siberian wolves. They
selected only the biggest and strongest puppy from each litter, killed his
siblings, and gave him all the milk. They used steroids and trainers and
after five years came up with the biggest meanest dog the world had ever
seen. Its cage needed steel bars that were five inches thick and nobody
could get near it. When the day came for the fight, the Americans showed
up with a strange animal. It was a nine foot long Dachshund. Everyone felt
sorry for the Americans because they knew there was no way that this dog
could possibly last ten seconds with the Russian dog.
When the cages were opened up, the Dachshund came out and consumed the
Russian dog in one bite. There was nothing left at all of the Russian dog.
The Russians came up to the Americans shaking their heads in disbelief.
'We don't understand how this could have happened. We had our best people
working for five years with the meanest Dobermans and Rottweilers in the
world and the biggest meanest Siberian wolves."
"That's nothing", an American replied. "We had our best plastic surgeons
working for five years trying to make an alligator look like a Dachshund.'
