Nanny states

The three ambassadors were drinking together at the local pub. Each was trying to outdo the rest in bragging about how socialistic their countries had become.

"In the UK, the government takes care of you from the cradle to the grave," says the Limey ambassador.

The ambassador from the USA won't be outdone. "In America, the government takes care of you from the womb to the tomb. You don't have to be born yet."

"Pah!" says the froggie ambassador, "In France we take care of you from erection to resurrection!"

Can't beat that.

Don't even try.
