  12. avatar Hi Power Toter says:

    With his men surrounded and outgunned by the invading Ice Warriors, Sgt. Atkins had no choice but to surrender and ask for an alliance from the Ice Lord. As he cautiously shook the Ice Lord’s hand, he carefully noted every detail of his new but temporary overlord, for, as soon as possible, he would escape, and he must be ready for the intel debriefing. If only there were a specialist “unit” to deal with this sort of thing! Naturally they’d have to be armed with the very best in modern repeating sidearms…

It will be well over 100 years from now, and you can bet your biscuits that edged weapons will continue as the legal choice of royal subjects.” Last words of the official spokesman for the British Cutlery & Silverware Association circa 1914
