There were two historians who decided to go to a restaurant to eat. When they got there they ordered their meal and then started talking. Finally after a while they saw the waiter bring a platter with a plump turkey. As he was walking toward them he tripped over a step and the whole turkey fell to the ground.
Then, one of the historians remarked:
“There goes the downfall of Turkey, the overthrow of Greece and the break-up of China!”
