The French Leader got a coded message from Bush Administration. It read:
The French were stumped and sent for the French Information Agency. The FIA was stumped too, so it went to the Russians. The Russians couldn't solve it either, so they asked the Germans. The Germans, having received this same message during W.W.II from the Americans, suggested turning it upside down ...

Just to prove the Americans don't do EVERYTHING right ................
Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets all travelling at maximum velocity.
The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl.
To test the strength of the windshields.
The American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains.
Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers. When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashing it to smithereens, blasted through the control consol and snapped the engineers back rest in two, and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow.
The horrified yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.
Rolls Royce responded with a one line memo
"Defrost the chicken"
