An English Joke [John Derbyshire] ...that only an English person will truly understand. An Englishman, an Irishman, a Welshman and a Scotsman were captured while fighting in Iraq. The leader of their captors said: "We're going to line you up in front of a firing squad and shoot you all in turn. But first, you each can make a final wish." The Scotsman says: "I'd like to hear Flower of Scotland just one more time to remind me of the auld country, played on bagpipes in the style of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards." The Irishman says: "I'd like to hear Danny Boy just one more time to remind me of the Emerald Isle, sung in the style of Daniel O'Donnell, with Riverdance dancers skipping gaily to the tune." The Welshman says: "I'd like to hear Men Of Harlech just one more time to remind me of the Land of my Fathers, sung as if by the Aberavon Male Voice Choir." The Englishman said: "I'd like to be shot first..."

After watching all these songs on YouTube, I totally agree with the English captive.

I would agree except when I was young I saw "Zulu" and of course it was hyper-romantic but when the men of the 24th Regiment of Foot replied to the Zulu chants with "Men of Harlech" you had to cheer for the Welsh/Brits.

  Here's one that should fit into the spirit of this thread, which i've found at this site: 
A Florida State student, a Kansas State student, and an Aggie had all
commited horrendous crimes and were going to be shot. The FSU guy was brought up and blindfolded. The general shouted, "Ready ....... aim..." and the FSU guy yelled, "Hurricane!!," everybody ducked, and he ran away free.
     Dismayed at losing their first prisioner, the guards brought up the KSU student with renewed vengence. They blindfolded him and the general commanded, "Ready......aim....." and the KSU guy shouted, "Tornado!!" and fearing for their lives, everybody ducked, and he ran away free.
     Well, the Aggie has been watching all this and starts thinking, "They all yelled natural disasters and they got away, so I will too." So they brought him up and blinded folded him,  the general shouted,  "Ready ...... aim...." and the Aggie screamed, "Fire!!"
And of course there is one my father had told me when i was young one, (He always loved too try to gross me out right before supper), which he had gotten from an Aggie joke book: How many Aggies does it take to make chocolate-chip cookies? The answer: Two - One too stir the dough, while the other is squeezing the rabbit.

I've heard some of the the Aggie jokes before, but that was a good one.  In Southern California the big rivalry is UCLA vs USC.  It's more of a class warfare thing with USC (University of Spoiled Children) being targeted as elitist.
I also admired the Welshmen in Zulu.  If 4,000 Zulus were attacking me I'd be running not singing.

The nickname "Aggie" refers to students, alumni, and sports teams of Texas A&M.
