The Pentagon decided one day that there were to many
Generals, so they decided to offer early retirement to
three of them. They called Congress and asked them to vote
on a method of determining each General's early retirement
bonus. After voting Congress decided that each man would
choose two points of their body to measure between and then
each man would be paid $10,000 per inch.
They called in the first General. He decide to have
them measure from the top of his head to the bottom of his
feet. Upon measuring it to 6 feet, they paid him $720,000.
The next General, thinking a little bit more, stretched
his arms above his head, and asked them to measure from the
tips of his fingers, to the bottom of his feet. After
measuring 8 feet, they paid him $960,000.
The next General, with a smug look on his face, asked
them to measure from the tip of his penis to the bottom of
his balls. Congress decided to call in a medical officer.
The medical officer asked the General to drop his pants.
The medical officer lifted the General's penis to make the
measurement, but instead he exclaimed, "Good God man, where
are your balls!!" With a smile the General said, "I left
them in Vietnam."
