Jest - Bang

Jest - Bang

It is early January of 1793. The commotion outside of the Castle of Versailles is growing louder by the minute. Louis XVI, however, is not bothered, as he is getting his new suit matched, pleated and frilled in his chambers by his favorite tailor.
"Ah yes, Poilon, superb work with the gold thread on my boot leather as per usual. And now: the silk pants with Morocco pearls."
"Y-your Majesty... I think they're breaking down the front wall."
"Nonsense! Clothe me or I shall have you beheaded!"
"Absolutely, your majesty! There we go!"
"Splendid! Fetch the doe skin gloves. I want them creased and covered in emeralds."
A loud bang was heard, followed by an ominous roar. Poilon shuddered.
"They're here, your Grace - the horde."
"Don't be preposterous, you simpleton! Get. The. Doe. Skin. Gloves!!"
"B-but your excellence..."
"Get the gloves or get my sword!! Either my knuckles roll in sunlight or your head in the gutter!!"
"Yes your Hi-"
But before Poilon finished his sentence, the door flew off its hinges and the starved, enraged People's Militia flooded the chamber. They stopped in their tracks, gaping at the lavish wastefulness of the king's suit.
"Blasphemy!" a peasant called out. "That outfit alone could feed a village for two years!" He turned to Poilon. "Have you designed this atrocity, this Robe of Famine!?"
Poilon, frantically torn between death threats - obeying his King and answering to the Militia, simply opted to pleat the fist.

Bang bang
‪A man from Poland joins the polish army. As they are passing out rifles, they run out of rifles when they reach him. So they hand him a broomstick handle and say “when you see somebody yell BANG BANG”. In battle the man is running for his life until he gets cornered. He aims his‬ broomstick handle and yells BANG BANG. The man cornering him drops to the floor dead. After that scenario, the man runs around the battlefield yelling BANG BANG! As people start dropping to the floor. Then, he comes across a man who is walking slowly towards him. The man with the broom yells BANG BANG but the man doesn’t fall. The man keeps screaming BANG BANG until the man walks right over the other man while saying TANK TANK.
