A patrol was marching north of Basra when they came upon an Iraqi insurgent, badly injured and unconscious.On the opposite side of the road was a British soldier in a similar but less serious state. The soldier was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the platoon leader asked the injured soldier what had happened.The soldier reported, "I was moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved, and he yelled back that Gordon Brown is a fat, good-for-nothing, left wing half-blind scotsman, and Lord Mandelson is a cross-dressing idiot.So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian.He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Harriet Harman!""And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a bus hit us."
