How about a rebel yell, Mate?

"The Picture Show" article at NPR

Someone linked this at Facebook. I found it amusing. Note the picture of the boys at the beginning of the article. They are described as "U.S. sharpshooters." There was a regiment sized formation in the Army of the Potomac known as Berdan's Sharpshooters who wore green uniforms. In the video clip, note the Lee impersonator. I don't think he necessarily looks a lot like Lee, but the uniform is perfect, right down to the detail that he is wearing the rank insignia of a colonel. Now, either some of these jokers are coming over the the U.S. to buy realistic gear, or someone is making a mint importing it there.

Watch the video, it's very intersting.

Did you ever hear that tale how a soldier in the civil war got shot in the balls, the bullet passed through the left nut, carrying with it a load of sperm?

The bullet then hit a fair maiden right in the uterus, and guess what happened??!!

Yep, another virgin birth.

@chai2,
I believe every word of that. Have you contacted Ripley's Believe It or Not?

Mythbusters busted that myth... albeit it was obvious from the beggining it was impossible for sperm to survive that kind of shock. Funny how they test first, and ask someone from the field who will reply "absolutely impossible" later =)

Ya think? Rolling Eyes

impossible for sperm to survive the shock of a bullet....wow. Not to mention the heat generated, huh?


What about that girl that had no vagina that was impregnated by oral sex?

@manored,
It has to do with your failure to see that she was just being funny . . .

Yeah, we all say that about Chai, but she's the only one with a key to the washroom so we have to let her stay.
