Strange, strange Septics!

ISTR that one of the more deranged ideas was that US troops should approach the enemy whilst carrying lambs, and with 'sparkly eyes', set the lambs down in front of the enemy, who would then cave in en masse in the face of such rampant cuteness.

No mention of how to accomplish this in a hail of enemy mortar and MG fire.

Quite, quite mad.


... they believed that a soldier could adopt a cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls, and, perhaps most chillingly, kill goats just by staring at them.
Now there's some useful research. I've had a cabby at the "passing through walls" caper, and I came out the other side dusty as fuck. So if they can find a way to do it cleanly .....

Killing goats by staring at them has already prevented a disaster, for the goats heard about it and postponed their invasion indefinitely.

On the other hand, this has got to be a piss-take.

"Staring", or actually "stay-eh-ring" is actually Old Norse* for "bumming". So the whole thing was a complete misunderstanding. What the bloke meant was that you could kill a goat by bumming it.

*This is a lie, I’m afraid.
But somehow it deserves to be true.
