NEWSFLASH from the front of the Portuguese-Dutch windmill battle:

The Dutch windmills are marching on and are taking over the Portuguese countryside. Several windmills of the Portuguese and their allies have already been destroyed, as shown here and here. As a sign of victory, one of the Portuguese mills that was involved in the innocent windmill war from the second day, was equipped with Dutch blades.

In the meanwhile the British secret service found out about Dutch rocket mills that were already positioned on their launch pads. Probably the secret agents had been drinking to many Wodka Martinis (shaken, not stirred), because they failed to see that these rocket mills were not equipped with war heads made for destruction, but for improvement of the Portuguese scenery! Once the Dutch windmills have reached the Mediterranean Coast, these rockets will be launched and will release thousands of little Dutch windmills (as shown in the picture) over Portugal. They will happily grow on the Portuguese countryside, enabling the Portuguese people to fully enjoy the superior technology and sheer beauty of the Dutch windmills. And for sure, one day the Portuguese will be thankful to the Dutch, wear wooden shoes, eat raw herring, tolerate marihuana, listen to Frans Bauer and start screwing up on penalty shoot-outs in important football matches....

(Yike, now this is really starting to frighten me...)

For anybody who has missed the Portuguese-Dutch innocent windmill war, please have a look at the theme for more information and have fun!
