A Frenchman, an Englishman and a German are about to be executed by a firing-squat. Before shooting them, the executioner asks their last wishes.
The Frenchman thinks for a while, then he says: “I want to empty one last bottle of Dom Pérignon, the finest French Champagne”.
“OK”, says the executioner. Your wish will be granted.
Then he asks the German: “What is your last wish?”
“I want to deliver one last speech”, says the German.
“All right”, says the executioner.
Then he turns to the Englishman and asks: “What is your last wish?”
The Englishman asks back: “May I be shot before the German please?”
