The typical Romanian peasant, Badea Gheorghe, arrives in front of the Government Building in Bucharest. He leaves his bicycle against a fence and starts looking around.
The security guard:

– Bade, you shouldn’t leave your bike here like that! The ministers, the prime-minister are coming…

– Oh, don’t worry about it! I secured it with a chain and put a lock on it!


Napoleon comes back to life and visits the USA, the USSR and Romania.
After his visit to the USA, he tells the president: “If I had had your military equipment and training, I wouldn’t have lost the battle of Waterloo!”
He goes to the USSR and at the end of his visit, he tells the Russian president: “If I had had your KGB and espionage system, I wouldn’t have lost the battle of Waterloo!”
He comes to Romania and, at the airport, before leaving, he tells Ceausescu: “If I had had your press, television and media, no one to this day would have known I lost the battle of Waterloo!”
