If it's heaven the...

If it's hell, then the...
 The Chefs are English

 The Engineers are French

  There is a beautiful deserted island in the middle of nowhere
the following people are stranded:

 2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman
 2 French men and 1 French woman
 2 German men and 1 German woman
 2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman
 2 English men and 1 English woman
 2 Bulgarian men and 1 Bulgarian woman
 2 American men and 1 American woman
 2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman

  One month later on this absolutely stunning deserted island in
the middle of nowhere, the following has occurred:

 One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman.

 The two French men and the French woman are living happily together 
in a menage a trois.

 The 2 German men have a strict weekly schedule of when they 
alternate with the German woman.

 The 2 Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman 
is cleaning and cooking for them.

 The 2 English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to 
the English woman.

 The Bulgarian men took a long look at the endless ocean and one 
look at the Bulgarian woman and they started swimming.

 The two American men are contemplating the virtues of suicide, 
while the American woman keeps on bitching about her body being 
too fat, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything 
that they can do, but still expects to be treated as a princess, 
about the necessity of fulfilment, the equal division of 
household chores, how her relationship with her mother is 
improving, and how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and 
treated her much nicer.  But at least the taxes are low and it 
is not raining.

 The Irish began by dividing the island into North and South and 
by setting up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the 
picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few litres 
of coconut whisky, but at least the English are not getting any.

Belgium's national motto:
Belgium:  Gateway to France!

Have you heard the Hutus sing "Tut-tut-tutsi, good bye"

  In Brazil, the voting system is completely computerized.  
Even in the smallest village, citizens enter votes at ATM-like 
kiosks, votes are tabulated instantaneously, and the results 
are 100% accurate.  Officials are looking at the system seeking 
ways to improve vote canvassing in the US.
  So, Brazil is literally showing the US how to run an election.
But, it only figures, at a time in which:
  the world's top tennis player is from Brazil,
  the world's top soccer team is French,
  the world's top golf player is black,
  and the world's top sumo wrestler is German.

How do you get 20 Cubans into a bathtub?
Tell them it floats
What's the Cuban national anthem?
 "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

  Have you noticed the recent defections of four Cubans at the
Pan American Games. They chose to defect in Winnipeg, - "which
gives you an idea how desperate things are in Cuba."
  In this vein, the Winnipeg Sun has a contest going for readers
to guess how many defections there will be. The winner gets --
what else -- a trip to Cuba.

Drawbacks To The INS Taking Away Elian Gonzalez

Elian's Miami family will now have to fill out a revised census form.

Equipment failure on the part of INS agents prevented Miami family 
from hearing Peaches 'n  Herb song, Reunited, as it ripped Elian 
from their arms.

The massive media coverage is starting to give middle-of-the-night
child abductions by Federal Government Nazi-storm troopers a bad name.

Miami family will have to forward Elian's magazine subscription to
Castro's a Bastard!.

Instead of the Miami family filling Elian's head with goofy ideas, 
now Cuba's government and the U.S. government get to fill his head 
with their own goofy ideas.

Since he left on such short notice, Elian couldn't take his t-shirt
that says, "My mother died fleeing a Communist country and all I got
was five months of freedom."

The look on Juan Miguel Gonzalez' face when he's told to take his son
back to Cuba and then led down to Miami beach and told to pick a raft.

Any event or crisis that puts Attorney General Janet Reno's face on
television is just plain bad.

Due to the low number of protestors on hand at the time of the raid, 
all of the unused Molotov cocktails must now be saved for Vice 
President Al Gore's next campaign stop in Miami. (Give 'em hell, Al!)

A sure sign he's fading, this is the first crisis President Clinton 
was unable to bomb a third-world country or get 'em a piece of ass 
to distract the country's attention.

  Most people who have seen the picture of Agent Fatboy seizing 
Elian from the arms of the "fisherman" who rescued him from the 
ocean 5 months ago.  But, actually what is happening, is that 
the agent is telling the fisherman (Donato) that he cannot keep 
Elian because he caught him without the proper permit, and that 
Elian is too small to keep.
  Elian is scared because he is afraid that they are going to 
have to throw him back.

With all the international coverage in the press, I don't 
think anyone can ever again deny that the U.S. Government 
has been involved in Elian Abductions.

Travelling in India

  Travelling in India is an almost hallucinatory potion of sound,
spectacle and experience.  It is frequently heart-rending, sometimes
hilarious, mostly exhilarating, always unforgettable - and, when you
are on the roads, extremely dangerous.
  Most Indian road users observe a version of the Highway Code based
on an ancient text.  These 12 rules of the Indian road are published
for the first time in English.

  The assumption of immortality is required of all road users.

  The following precedence must be accorded at all times.  In
descending order, give way to:  cows, elephants, heavy trucks, 
buses, official cars, camels, light trucks, buffalo, Jeeps, 
ox-carts, private cars, motorcycles, scooters, auto-rickshaws, 
pigs, pedal rickshaws, goats, bicycles (goods-carrying), 
handcarts, bicycles (passenger-carrying), dogs, pedestrians.

  All wheeled vehicles shall be driven in accordance with the
maxim: to slow is to falter, to brake is to fail, to stop is 
defeat. This is the Indian drivers' mantra.

  Use of horn (also known as the sonic fender or aural amulet):
Cars (IV,1,a-c):  Short blasts (urgent) indicate supremacy, i.e.
in clearing dogs, rickshaws and pedestrians from path.  Long 
blasts (desperate) denote supplication, i.e. to oncoming truck, 
"I am going too fast to stop, so unless you slow down we shall 
both die".  In extreme cases this may be accompanied by flashing 
of headlights (frantic). Single blast (casual) means "I have seen 
someone out of India's 870 million whom I recognize", "There is a
bird in the road (which at this speed could go through my 
windscreen)" or "I have not blown my horn for several minutes."
  Trucks and buses (IV,2,a):  All horn signals have the same 
meaning, viz, "I have an all-up weight of approximately 12.5 tons
and have no intention of stopping, even if I could." This signal 
may be emphasized by the use of headlamps (insouciant).
  Article IV remains subject to the provision of Order of 
Precedence in Article II above.

  All maneuvers, use of horn and evasive action shall be left until
the last possible moment.

  In the absence of seat belts (which there is), car occupants shall
wear garlands of marigolds.  These should be kept fastened at all

  Rights of way:  Traffic entering a road from the left has priority.
So has traffic from the right, and also traffic in the middle. Lane 
discipline (VII,1):  All Indian traffic at all times and irrespective 
of direction of travel shall occupy the center of the road.

  Roundabouts:  India has no roundabouts.  Apparent traffic islands 
in the middle of crossroads have no traffic management function.
Any other impression should be ignored.

  Overtaking is mandatory.  Every moving vehicle is required to
overtake every other moving vehicle, irrespective of whether it has 
just overtaken you.  Overtaking should only be undertaken in suitable
conditions, such as in the face of oncoming traffic, on blind bends,
at junctions and in the middle of villages/city centers.  No more 
than two inches should be allowed between your vehicle and the one 
you are passing - and one inch in the case of bicycles or pedestrians.

  Nirvana may be obtained through the head-on crash.

  Reversing:  no longer applicable since no vehicle in India has 
reverse gear.

  The 10th incarnation of God was as an articulated tanker.

  Mr. and Mrs. McKee, vacationing in Rome, were being shown 
through the Colosseum.
  "Now, this room," said the guide, "is where the slaves 
dressed to fight the lions."
  "But how does one dress to fight lions?" inquired Mr. McKee.
  "Very slow-w-w-w-w-w-ly," replied the guide.

What would you call it when an Italian has one arm shorter

Italian men, because they talk with their hands.
