    Lazy Dogs were used in both WWII and Korea. Forms were even used in Viet Nam. We used to see buckets of these at the surplus shops and would buy handfuls of them as curios. At the time, they were usually, like, 5 for a dollar. They've gone up abit in price since...

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
