Heres a good one.....

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Dudelsak, Feb 25, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Tony Blair was visiting a school and was asked by a
    teacher if he would like to lead the discussion on
    what constituted a “ tragedy”.
    So the illustrious leader asked the class for an
    example of a "tragedy."
    One little boy stood up and offered, "If my best friend, who lives on
    a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills
    him, that would be a tragedy."
    "No," said Blair, "that would be an accident."
    A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children
    drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy."
    "I'm afraid not." explained the PM. "That's what we would call a
    great loss."
    The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Blair searched
    the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example
    of tragedy?"
    Finally, at the back of the room a small boy raised his hand. In a
    quiet voice he said: "If an aircraft carrying you, Mr. Blair, was struck
    by a "friendly fire" missile 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," says the boy, "it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly
    wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident."
