    ONE boring afternoon, Saddam Hussein was sitting in his office wondering who
    to invade when his telephone rang.

    "Hello Mr Hussein," a heavily accented voice says " This is Paddy down in
    County Cavan, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that I am officially
    declaring war on you!!"

    "Well, Paddy," Saddam replies "This indeed is important news! Tell me, how
    big is your army?"

    "At this moment in time," says Paddy after a moments calculation "there is
    myself, my cousin Sean, my next door neighbour Gerry and the entire dominoes
    team from the pub - That makes 8!"

    Saddam sighs and says "I must tell you Paddy that I have 1 million men in my
    army waiting to move on my word"

    "Oh ****" says Paddy "I'll have to ring you back!"

    Sure enough, the next day Paddy rings back. "Right Mr Hussein, the war is
    still on! We have managed to acquire some equipment!"

    "What equipment would that be, Paddy?" Saddam asks excitedly.

    "Well, we have 2 combine harvesters, a bulldozer and Murphy's tractor from
    the farm"

    Once more Saddam sighs disappointed and says "I must tell you Paddy that I
    have 16 000 tanks, 2 000 mine layers, 14 000 armoured cars and my army has
    increased to 1 and a half million since we last spoke"

    "I'll be damned!" says Paddy "I'll have to ring you back!"

    Sure enough, Paddy rings again the next day. "Right Mr Hussein, the war is
    still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We've kitted out old
    Ted's cropsprayer with a couple of rifles in the cockpit and the bridge team
    has joined us as well!"

    Once more Saddam sighs and says "I must tell you Paddy that I have 10 000
    bombers and 20 000 MIG-109 high-manouverability attack planes and my
    military complex is surrounded by laser Guided surface-to-air missile
    sites. And since we last spoke, my army has increased to 2 million."

    "Oh bollocks" says Paddy "I'll have to ring you back" And, sure enough, he
    calls again the next day.

    "Right Mr Hussein, I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the
    war"

    "Oh, I'm very sorry to hear that" says Saddam truly disappointed "Why the
    sudden change of heart?"

    "Well," says Paddy "We've all had a chat and there's no way we can cope with
    2 million prisoners. Sorry."
