The troops were always complaining they hadn't got a pot to piss in, so I solved the problem and had these made up, the sweet thing is I managed to sort it so one could deduct the cost from their wages... what..

So the idea is we tow them around Kabul playing and the wall will fall.

The accuracy can be improved by using the temperature compensating controls .The control dial indicators start at nippy and compensate all the way down to very nippily . Gleefully improved performance begins when both dial controls are moved simultaneously in synchronized manner accompanied by the instruction “ Come in Tokyo “

Dr. Seuss was thrilled when the Army ordered several additional Tubaloobaumpalumpa devices to augment their armamentarium.
