The Russians are coming the Russians are coming!

18th Century 140,000 sq. ft. chateau “accidentally” razed by Polish construction team. Its Russian owner is “shocked, shocked!” that his workmen could make such a mistake. While this has the earmarks of a fine Polish joke, it’s more likely a story about the invasion of the visigoths.

But the Ruskie lacks the brazenness displayed by Ross Perot who back in the 90s was told by Bermudian authorities that he wasn’t allowed to blast apart a coral reef to accommodate the 150′ yacht he wanted to moor alongside his mansion. Perot blew it up anyway and said, “send me a bill”. Cost him $1 million.

    Mon dieu!

    When I think of the French It remind me of this American/French Story:
    don’t know how true it is but I always get a smile when I read it…

    A group of Americans, retired teachers, recently went to France on a tour. Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.

    At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

    “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”

    The American said, “The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”

    “Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in France!”

    The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look.

    Then he quietly explained, “Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in ’44 to help liberate this country, I couldn’t find any Frenchmen to show it to.”
