    No one cut it, Rick, that's how it was found in the river.

    It sure looks very odd, Rick, but that's how they found it... Who knows how it came to look like this.

    Well, Rick, I was the one who made a mistake... SORRY!

    The Moldavian peasants took the tank out of the Siret river; they did the cutting. Why? They needed the engine for a water pump.

    I thought it looked like that because... never mind.
