Boer War, Schmoer War
by Instant Noodle
It’s November 6, 1918. Things are looking hairy for Germany.
Socialists have been chalking the Berlin pavements with the words “The Kaiser Must Abdicate”. We suppose they adopted this tactic because Wilhelm has so far ignored the writing on the wall.
Everyone knows they’re on their last legs. But does the Kaiser?
“Our enemies,” says the Cologne Gazette, “must not imagine that the fatherland is incapable of holding its own.” The error is justifiable however in view of the Fatherland’s admitted failure to hold anyone else’s.
But, maybe we’re being pessimistic.
Yet another example of the humility of true greatness. The Crown Prince declares that he has no desire to annihilate the Allied armies.
