At an exhibition of military painting a visitor was admiring a picture.
"What a great realist that painter is!" he exclaimed.
"The one that painted this picture ‘Soldiers at Work‘."
"Yes, but something is wrong there. Those soldiers are not working at all!"
"That is just the greatest stroke of realism in the picture!"
A soldier was brought up before the officer for some offense.
"You can take your choice, one month‘s restriction or twenty day‘s pay," said the officer.
"All right, sir," said the bright soldier, "I‘ll take the money."
