Germany, Austria and Italy are standing together in the middle of a pub when Serbia bumps into Austria and spills Austria’s pint.
Austria demands Serbia buy it a complete …new suit because there are splashes on its trouser leg.

Russia and Serbia look at Austria.
Austria asks Serbia who it’s looking at.
Russia suggests that Austria should leave its little brother alone.
Austria inquires as to whose army will assist Russia in compelling it to do so.
Germany appeals to Britain that France has been looking at it, and that this is sufficiently out of order that Britain should not intervene.
Britain replies that France can look at who it wants to, that Britain is looking at Germany too, and what is Germany going to do about it?
Germany tells Russia to stop looking at Austria, or Germany will render Russia incapable of such action.
Britain and France ask Germany whether it’s looking at Belgium.
Ottoman and Germany go off into a corner and whisper. When they come back, Turkey makes a show of not looking at anyone.

France and Britain punch Germany.
Austria punches Russia.

Japan calls over from the other side of the room that it’s on Britain’s side, but stays there.
Italy surprises everyone by punching Austria.

There are no hard feelings because Britain made Australia do it.
France gets thrown through a plate glass window, gets back up, staggers back into the bar and carries on fighting by attempting to kick Germany in the balls while he hides behind Britain’s skirt.
Russia gets thrown through another window, gets knocked out, suffers brain damage, and wakes up with a complete personality change and starts punching itself in the face.
Italy throws a punch at Austria and misses, but Austria falls over anyway.
Italy raises both fists in the air and runs ’round the room chanting inane Italian taunts.
BRITAIN AND FRANCE START WHINING THAT THEY NEED HELP FROM AMERICA.
America watches the belligerents until Britain and France are about to fall over from sustained punching from Germany.
Shakes her head in disgust, contempt and resignation.
Then walks over and ends the fight by by smashing Germany over the head with a bar stool
Yells; “I gotta stop partying with these belligerent assholes!”
By now all the chairs are broken and the big mirror over the bar is shattered. Britain, France and America agree that Germany threw the first punch, so the whole thing is Germany’s fault.
While Germany is still unconscious, Britain and France go through its pockets, steal its wallet and buy drinks for all their friends.
Russia inexplicably continues to punch himself in the face.
Just for the hell of it, Britain and France take Ottoman out to the back alley and shake her down. She has no money so they take her clothes instead.
After everyone else leaves and Germany is still unconscious on the floor, France buggers Germany and smashes the Kraut over the head with a wine bottle one last time.
Germany awakens several hours later and vows revenge on the French.
