    Capitalism defined
    I'll explain what's what in the bewildering world of economic globalism...

    AMERICAN CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows.
    You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public buys your bull.

    AUSTRALIAN CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows.
    You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
    You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

    BRITISH CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows. You feed them sheep's brains and they go mad.
    You shoot one and get a vet to give the other one the all clear and then declare there is no problem with BSE in your country.

    CHINESE CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows.
    You have 300 people milking them.
    You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest and detain without trial the journalist who falsely reported the number of cows.

    EU CAPITALISM
    You have twelve cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. Then it buys three from you, shoots three, milks the other three and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing three mad cows.

    INDIAN CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows.
    You worship them both.

    JAPANESE CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows.
    You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create clever cow cartoon images called Cowkimon and market them worldwide.

    JEWISH CAPITALISM:
    You don't have any cows but that doesn't stop you opening a milk factory, an ice cream parlour and selling the world movie rights.

    RUSSIAN CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows. You count them and realize you have four cows. You drink more Vodka. You count the cows again and realize you have eleventy-one cows. You drink even more Vodka. After a while, you realise that eleventy-one isn't a real number. You count the cows again and have two cows. You open another bottle of Vodka and try to drown the loss of eleventy-one cows.

    WELSH CAPITALISM
    You have two cows.
    You shag them both.

    REAL LIFE CAPITALISM:
    You don't have any cows.
    The bank will not lend you the money to buy any cows, because you don't have any cows to put up as security.
    You go mad and shoot yourself.

    Default Tony Blair in Horrific tragedy!

    The Tragedy of Tony Blair
    The Prime Minister gets a lesson in sematics

    Prime Minister, Tony Blair, was visiting a school when a teacher asked him if he would care to lead the class discussion on semantics. Tony, having just escaped a mauling by the BBC's Jeremy 'Rotweiler' Paxman by the skin of his lying teeth, smugly chose the word ‘tragedy' and asked the class to give an example of its use.

    One boy stood up and said, “If my girlfriend, Suzie, who lives on a farm, was playing near the cesspit, and fell in, and her dad stuck a fork through her chest and killed her, that would be a tragedy.”
    “No,” said Blair, “that would be an accident.”

    Then a pretty, dark haired girl called Keli, raised her hand and suggested shyly: “If there was, like, a nucla war dat killed all da blokes but left da girls alive and da last bloke on earth lost his testicles in a shaving accident, that would be like, a REAL tragedy.”
    “I’m afraid not.” Said slimey Tone. “That’s what we would call a great loss.”

    The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Blair searched the room in vain for an upraised hand. “Isn’t there anyone here who can give me a correct definition of the word 'tragedy?”

    Finally, a scruffily dressed blonde right at the very back of the room raised her grubby hand. In an an uncertain voice she said: “If an aircraft carrying you, Mr. Blair, the cabinet and Mr Bush was struck by a ‘friendly’ missile fired by an American helicopter gunship and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.”
    “Fantastic!” exclaimed Blair. “That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?”

    “Well...” replied the girl, “it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either.”

    Paddy had been drinking at his local Dublin pub all day and most of the night celebrating St Patrick’s Day.



    Mick, the bartender says, “You’ll not be drinking anymore tonight



    Paddy.



    Paddy replies, “OK Mick, I’ll be on my way then.”



    Paddy spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his face.



    ”Shoite” he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off.



    He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face, “Shoite, Shoite!”







    He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and some fresh air he’ll be fine.



    He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up to the door frame.



    He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air,



    Feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk and falls flat on his face.







    ”Bi’Jesus... I’m fokin’ smashed,” he says.



    He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door, hauls himself up the door frame, opens the door and shimmies inside.



    He takes a look up the stairs and says “No fokin’ way”. He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says “I can make it to the bed.” He



    takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face.



    He says “Fok it” and falls into bed.







    The next morning, his wife, Jess, comes into the room carrying a cup



    Of coffee and says, “Get up Paddy. Did you have a bit to drink last night?”







    Paddy says, “I did Jess. I was fokin’ pissed. But how’d you know?”



    ”Mick phoned, you left your wheelchair at the pub.”
