Newfoundland declares war on the U.S.A.

President Barack Obama was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang."Hallo, President Obama" a heavily accented voice said. "Dis 'ere is Archie, up 'ere at the Harp Seal Pub in Badger's Cove, Newfoundland, Canada , he? I am callin' to tells ya dat we are officially declaring war on ya!" "Well  Archie," Barack replied, "This is indeed important news ! How big is your army ?" "Right  now," said Archie, after a moments calculation,  "there is myself, me cousin Harold, me next-door-neighbor Mick, and the whole dart team from the pub. That makes eight!"  

Barack  paused. "I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my  command."

"Wow,"  said Archie. "I'll have at call ya back!"

Sure  enough, the next day, Archie called again. " Mr.  Obama, the war is still on! We have managed to  acquire some infantry equipment!"  

"And what equipment would that be Archie?" Barack  asked.

"Well  sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and  Harry 's farm tractor."

President  Obama sighed. "I must tell you Archie, that I  have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel  carriers. Also I've increased my army to one and  a half million since we last spoke."

"Lord  above", said Archie, "I'll be getting back to  ya."

Sure  enough, Archie rang again the next day. "President Obama, the war be still on! We have  managed to git ourselves airborne! We up an'  modified Harrigan's ultra-light wit a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four boys from the Legion have joined us as well!"   

Barack  was silent for a minute then cleared his throat.  "I must tell you Archie that I have 10,000  bombers and 20,000 fighter planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO  MILLION!"  

"Jumpin Jasus,"  said Archie, "l'll have at call youse  back."  

Sure  enough, Archie called again the next day. "President Obama, I am sorry to have to tell you dat we have had to call off dis 'ere war."   

"I'm  sorry to hear that" said Barack . "Why the  sudden change of heart?"  

Well,  sir," said Archie, "we've all sat ourselves down and had a long chat over a bunch of pints, and  come to realize dat dere's no way we can feed two million prisoners."

God Bless 
Canada and be Proud of it!
