An English pris­oner of war was cap­tured by the Ger­mans dur­ing World War II. The English­man was badly wounded, and af­ter check­ing him over a German doc­tor de­liv­ered some bad news: “Eng­lan­der, your arm is in­fected with gan­grene vee must cut it off.” The English­man pris­oner was un­der­stand­ably up­set but even­tu­ally re­signed him­self to his fate and told the doc­tor: “Okay, cut my arm off if you must, but could you drop it over Eng­land when you go bomb­ing?” The German thought about the re­quest and replied, “Ya, that vill not be a prob­lem.” A few weeks later the German tells the English­man that the gan­grene has spread, and they have to cut off his other arm. The English­man is dev­as­tated but even­tu­ally says, “Well, could you drop it off over Eng­land like you did last time?” “Ya, that vill be done,” replies the German. The next day the German tells the English­man they will have to cut his leg off. Once again, the Brit says, “Well, could you do the same as be­fore?” The German replies, “Vhy yah.” Then a few days later the German tells him they have to cut off his other leg too. “Well,” be­gins the Brit, “Could you please just …” The German fi­nally snapped, re­fus­ing the pris­on­ers re­quest. “Why not?” asked the pris­oner. “Ve know vot you are up to,” he be­gan. “You are try­ing to es­cape to Eng­land, yah?”
