When he went to see what was going on, he found most of the nearby village running by in a panic. "Vat is going on?", he demanded.
The village's mayor replied, "The Romanians are invading! We're evacuating!"
The count smiled and shook his head. "No. Get everyone in here. I vill prepare a surprise for our guests, a little souvenir that my servants and I...'acquired' vhen our army disbanded." With that he ran off to the rear of the mansion, leaving the front doors wide open.
The surprised mayor took one look at the sturdy mansion, and began shouting and waving for everyone to take shelter inside. They did, hiding fearfully as the sound of marching soldiers grew closer and closer. Eventually the count returned, walking confidently. Before the villagers could ask what he had planned, there was the sound of engines and gunfire outside.
The mayor peeked through a window to see a squadron of armored war machines, painted with the count's coat of arms, routing the invaders. "Tanks?!?"
The count nodded. "You're velcome!"

The American scientist says, "We took a cadaver of a man, brought him back to life, replaced his missing parts, and now he's up and walking and out looking for a job."
The Russian scientists says, "That's nothing! We took just one severed finger of a man, rebuilt EVERYTHING else with spare parts, and now he's out there looking for a job."
The Canadian scientist says, "Ah, chicken shit. We took just one little asshole of a man, made him Prime Minister, and now everybody's out there looking for a job!"
