Sent to me....quite a good laugh.

WW1 described in terms as a bar fight:

Germany, Austria and Italy are standing together in the middle of the
bar-room, 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.
Germany expresses its support for Austria's point of view.
Britain recommends that everyone calm down a bit.
Serbia points out that it can't afford a whole suit, but offers to pay
for cleaning Austria's trousers.
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.
Turkey and Germany go off into a corner and whisper. When they come
back, Turkey makes a show of not looking at anyone.
Germany rolls up its sleeves, looks at France, and punches Belgium.
France and Britain punch Germany. Austria punches Russia. Germany
punches Britain and France with one hand and Russia with the other.
Russia throws a punch at Germany, but misses and nearly falls over.
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.
Australia punches Turkey, and gets punched back. There are no hard
feelings, because Britain made Australia do it.
France gets thrown through a plate glass window, but gets back up and
carries on fighting. Russia gets thrown through another one, gets
knocked out, suffers brain damage, and wakes up with a complete
personality change.
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
America waits till Germany is about to fall over, then walks over, waves
a fist at Germany while Britain knocks it out, then pretends it won the
fight all by itself.
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, they go through its pockets, steal its wallet, and
buy drinks for all their friends.

Nobody comes out of it looking particularly good.
