What Happens When a Fly Falls into a Coffee Cup?

Digital compositing Assignment:
Do a short animation from any post we find in the personal ads section on Craig's list. The animation has to be at least 40 seconds and full-colored.

I happened to find a joke among those ads, and I had fun animating it.

the original post on website is already expired
but here is the original joke that was on the post :
(I only did it for class work, the joke does not represents my point of view)

What happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup?

The Italian - throws the cup and walks away in a fit of rage.

The Frenchman - takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.

The Chinese - eats the fly and throws away the coffee.

The Russian - drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.

The Israeli - sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to the Chinese, Buys himself a new cup of coffee and uses the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.

The Palestinian - blames the Israeli for the fly falling in his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, and the Russian are all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should give away his cup of coffee to the Palestinian.
