Things people tell me

Towards the end of the war the Japanese generals went to Hirohito and said, “Emperor, unless we find new troops immediately we will have to surrender.”

But a devilish light shone in the eyes of the occupant of the Chrysanthemum Throne, and he spoke defiantly, “Gentlemen, send the palace dwarves into action, and have them cry ‘Bonsai!’.”

You couldn’t make it up.
