    I hope this doesnt offend anyone but in my defence its from the local Parish newsletter!!! Personally I think I'll go for Surrealism!!! :lol::lol:

    Socialism: You have 2 cows and you give one to your neighbour.
    Communism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both and gives you some milk.
    Nazism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both and shoots you.
    Bureaucratism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both, shoots one, milks the other and throws the milk away.
    Capitalism: You have 2 cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.
    An American Corporation: You have 2 cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow dropped dead.
    A French Corporation: You have 2 cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.
    Japanese Corporation: You have 2 cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called Cowkimon and market them Worldwide.
    An Italian Corporation: You have 2 cows, but you don't know where they are. You break for lunch.
    A Swiss Corporation: You have 5000 cows. None of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.
    Chinese Corporation: You have 2 cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported the numbers.
    An Iraqi Corporation: Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No one believes you and they bomb you. You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a democracy.
    Counter Culture: 'Wow, dig it, like there's these 2 cows, man, grazing in the hemp field. You gotta have some of this milk!'
    Surrealism: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons...
    Fatalist: You have 2 doomed cows...
    A Greek Corporation: You had two cows. You borrowed money to buy 10 cows. Now you have no cows, but you owe tax on 100 cows.

    Haha, brilliant! But since you mentioned us in the title, seemed only fair that we should come back with this...

    A British corporation: You have two cows. You therefore write a strongly-worded letter to a national newspaper pointing out that you'd have three cows if it wasn't for all these foreigners stealing your cattle. ;)

    (This is fun! Can anyone think of any others?)
