Foiled plots in the news

This month, a terrorist attack on a European train was foiled by a group of young Americans and a 60-year-old British consultant.

The Americans were then immediately thrown off the train for speaking too loudly.

How to foil a terrorist plot

  1. Be brave and courageous American.

  2. Be on holiday in Amsterdam. They say it sharpens your reflexes.

  3. Wait hours for occupied train toilet. Tackle whoever comes out.


Receive congratulations from a grateful nation in your native tongue.
