    Did you hear about the non-binary prospector? They found gold in them/their hills

    Please be aware of a massive scam that's going on this Christmas!
    I ordered my wife a set of expensive jewellery and instead got a Pickelhaube cover...

    Not my own, but loved it!

    It's worthy of theft. The guy who put these together clearly knows his WWII geekery.

    Saw this on Facebook, just had to share it with y'all. Felt that I should wait a few days before posting though.

    Ok this is truly terrible... you have been warned. (I think the forum expands twitter links? Maybe not)

    From a Christmas Cracker this time around:

    Doctor: I'm afraid you are suffering from hypochondria Mr. Williams.

    Patient: Oh no! Not that as well.

    Can Englishmen shpritz? Can they even understand the concept of shpritzing? Here is Rickles shpritzing with Eastwood on the set of "Kelly's Heroes," totally unwritten and unrehearsed, right off the top of Rickles' bald head. And Eastwood is so goyische he hardly understands half the gags.

    I wonder what Rickles would have done with Oddball...

    Wasn't sure if this was previously referenced (here on the whole site), there doesn't seem to be search return on LSM-51, perhaps as it was a US ship in the Philippines.

    In 1945, two sailors who were angry about being ordered to scrape and paint USS LSM-51 decided to write "FOR SALE" on the side. It wasn't until another ship signaled "how much do you want for it?" that the confused captain discovered the unauthorized ad. Fortunately for the culprits, the captain was unable to determine who was responsible.
