As the American troops liberated Nouvion, the locals all came to watch the parade of captured German troops. As usual Lt Gruber just HAD to be different

The Third Reich is collapsing. There's no fuel for the Luftwaffe. The Russians are pushing for Berlin. Industry is bombed to hell. All of your comrades are dead. You've just been captured. And you're . . . riding a unicycle?

Have you ever counted the ball bearings in a bicycle?

There are fewer ball bearings in a lighter unicycle than a heavier bicycle, but if your balls start bearing the weight you might wish you had two WHEELS

At Stalag Luft 3 the guards were surprised. They thought the prisoners were building a glider in the loft.
