Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A large group of Taliban insurgents are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand dune: “One Marine is better than ten Taliban.”
The Taliban commander quickly sends ten of his best jihadis over the dune, whereupon a gun battle breaks out and continues for several tense minutes. Then silence.
The voice then calls out again: “One Marine is better than one hundred Taliban fighters.”
Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune, and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After ten minutes of battle, again silence.
The Marine voice calls out once more: “One Marine is better than one thousand Taliban.”
The enraged Taliban commander musters a thousand men and sends them screaming “Allahu akbar” as they cross over the dune. Cannon, rocket, mortar, grenade and machine-gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought. Then total silence.
Finally, one critically wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune, and with his dying words tell his commander, “Don’t send any more men, it’s a trap. There are two Marines!”
