Worked hard to royally fuck with the Ku Klux Klan
Hurrah for Stetson.
and the birthday photo reinforces it tenfold
in the way it's been cropping up in various place over the past month or so.
To keep the cover, Carton de Wiart was told he needed civilian clothes. Distrusting Italian tailors, he emphasized that they must be properly made. He was not going to wear one of their "bloody gigolo suits".

eventually becoming the highest Asian-American is US political history.
He was also impossible to kill:
As his squad distracted the third machine gunner, Inouye crawled toward the final bunker, eventually drawing within 10 yards. As he raised himself up and cocked his arm to throw his last grenade into the fighting position, a German inside the bunker fired a rifle grenade that struck him on the right elbow, severing most of his arm and leaving his own primed grenade reflexively "clenched in a fist that suddenly didn't belong to me anymore". Inouye's horrified soldiers moved to his aid, but he shouted for them to keep back out of fear his severed fist would involuntarily relax and drop the grenade. While the German inside the bunker reloaded his rifle, Inouye pried the live grenade from his useless right hand and transferred it to his left. As the German aimed his rifle to finish him off, Inouye tossed the grenade into the bunker and destroyed it. He stumbled to his feet and continued forward, silencing the last German resistance with a one-handed burst from his Thompson before being wounded in the leg and tumbling unconscious to the bottom of the ridge. When he awoke to see the concerned men of his platoon hovering over him, his only comment before being carried away was to gruffly order them to return to their positions, since, as he pointed out, nobody called off the war!
It could only be better if he threw the grenade with his arm still attached at the germans. Hopefully with some hand based pun.
Inoyue: 'Yes... you have to hand it to them...' *Puts on sunglasses with remaining hand, passes out*
And thought that it was Dale Winton who was referred to as "the English Jayne Mansfield".
AND I GOT DIS'S OWN MARKEE
I love that he scribbled the salient points in his ideas the night before the dual which killed him and those ideas are being used in ways in which couldn't have imagined.
AND YOU'RE TO BLAME!
YOU GIVE MATHS
A FRENCH NAME.
Travis was pretty much the opposite of a badass)
Long story short:
He said he was one of the two princes who were in the tower - thus rightful heir to the throne - even his sister beleived it was him. Got the backing of shit loads of importnat people. Even had a similar scar / birthmark.
Turned out it wasn't him and they killed him.
ALMOST GOT AWAY WITH IT!
there was a moker running around telling people he was an imposter all along.
but it takes a giant heap of abuse before people actually listen to what I say but in the end it's all cool, then yes, I agree.
If you're implying I'm some kinda grass, then I disagree.
I have no idea what I'm doing.
but not the second point.
There are some who believe he actually was.
Why would they let him go and threaten the crown so easily as he grew up? But it's an ace story. They did a dramatisation of it on TV a while ago and they basically strung you along insinuating that it's him, until right at the end where someone says "look amte, you cunt, it's not you" (not actual words) and then took him to the dungeon and showed him two mute princes who were now adults, but still kept alive in captivity.
And the was all like "oh, shit". Then they killed the lyign sonofabitch.
Something like that.
The picture of him at 76 makes him look like a total badass:
Shag around a bit to get your technique down, but take a young wife that hasn't.
Blown up by the IRA too. People forget that, probably.
Gerry Adams said Mountbatten would have understood it as an act of war... though they also killed kids and and old lady in the attack, which doesn't sound very Geneva conventionish.
or just a right-wing nutjob?
I mean, Carton de Wiart above wrote 'why do people want peace when war is so much fun?', which is horrible and psychotic, but he's still a badass.
Secondly DISCUSSED not ATTEMPTED
Parachuted into France:
''Upon discovering her tangled in a tree, Captain Tardivat greeted her remarking, "I hope that all the trees in France bear such beautiful fruit this year," to which she replied, "Don't give me that French shit.”"
"They'd taught this judo-chop stuff with the flat of the hand at SOE, and I practised away at it. But this was the only time I used it -- whack -- and it killed him all right. I was really surprised."
The 19th century's answer to Kevin Pietersen or something.
"Ranjitsinhji's last first-class cricket came in 1920; having lost an eye in a hunting accident, he played only three matches and found he could not focus on the ball properly. Possibly prompted by embarrassment at his performance, he later claimed his sole motivation for returning was to write a book about batting with one eye; such a book was never published.
In total, Ranjitsinhji scored 24,692 runs at an average of 56.37, the highest career average of a batsman based mainly in England until Geoffrey Boycott retired in 1986. He scored 72 hundreds."
