One day, somewhere in the Middle East, a US general was boasting about the toughness, bravery and courage of his enlisted men. He bellowed, "My men are the bravest bastards in the entire world- their balls are bigger than anyone else's in the whole damn world!"
To prove his point he brought up three of his best men- each one tougher and braver than the last.
The General pointed a finger to a random Arab
contractor walking by and said to the first soldier, "kill that man!"
The first soldier stepped up, lifted his rifle and shot the contractor dead. A big cheer went up from the other men.
The general then pointed to another Arab contractor and bellowed to the second soldier, "kill that man and then kill yourself!"
The second soldier stepped up, lifted his rifle, shot the contractor dead and then placed the rifle butt between his knees, muzzle to his temple, and fired. A cheer arose, but not quite as large as before.
The general, a bit annoyed by his men's lack of passion in their previous cheer, then pointed to the third soldier and gave him the following order: "climb up to the top of that flagpost and, when you have reached the top, turn and throw yourself headfirst to the ground!"
The third soldier walked over to the flag post, climbed to the top, turned around, and, while holding the American flag in one hand, looked down, took out his pistol and shot the general right between the eyes.
Thus proving to all assembled that he and he alone had the biggest balls of them all.
