A line of soldiers is at attention, ready for inspection. One of them sneezes, and their officer in a furious rage orders the one who sneezed to step forward. They all take a step back, which makes the officer even more furious. He begins to question them individually. When the first one denies sneezing, the officer shoots him. The second says he didn't sneeze, but would be happy to try. He is also shot. The third remembers sneezing a week ago, he is also shot, etc. Finally the officer comes to the last man and asks, "So, you must have been the one who sneezed?" "Yes," he confesses, as he falls to his knees, "but please don't shoot me!" "Oh, I'm not going to shoot you, son. I just wanted to say 'Gesundheit'."
