    Friendly fire accidents are the most dismaying events a soldier can experience.

    But if Andrew can make a joke about them, they’re almost worth it, eh?

    Oh, sorry, he’s being all Swiftian, isn’t he?

    Well, if you woke up, heard the news, and then thought of a joke like that, you might be able to resist posting it. I can’t.

  4. David says:

    Don’t believe you. I thought it worth repeating but the person I told it to already knew it.

    Damn. There goes my high ground.

    Well, it must have been spontaneous degeneration. I got it on Sunday morning, I think — the day that the ITN reporter was killed. I was listening to the radio, and I suddenly saw the division of labour: the Brits kill the journalists; the Americans kill the Brits, and the Iraqis …

    That dates the joke pretty precisely, because the story about Terry Lloyd changed in the next couple of days until it’s now believed that the Americans killed him.
