EUROPEAN COMMISSION RULING ON THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.
As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

Two photographers are shooting pictures of a grassy meadow when a bear emerges on the other side of the meadow, roars, and charges them. Unsure what to do, they keep taking pictures as he approaches. The bear is about halfway across the meadow and it's not yet clear who he's going after. Finally one photographer says to the other: "So what do we do now?"
"I don't know," is the reply, "but one of us gets to take one hell of a photo."
