Apart from a country or a name, what's a Chad?? It sounds anatomical and unpleasant.

The Infantry Technique - how to make the best use of that last sheet of TP

1.Take your sheet and tear out a circular hole in the middle.


2) use your imagination :lol:

3.Use the remaining disc of paper (classed as chad?) to clean under your fingernail.

Good grief! :shock: Well, the salutary lesson to be learned from that little exposition, is that if ever one finds oneself serving in the infantry and a woeful lack of loo roll is likely; keep your fingernails cut nice and short! :D*



* And if you find you've neglected to put your nail clippers in your kit bag; DON'T bite 'em! :(

Quite literally one of the reasons they're called 'Poor Bloody Infantry'.

Still off-thread, the 'hanging chad' on the US voting cards was what got George Dubya into the White House. That was probably a bum deal, too!

Raining now (again) in the big smoke - I wonder how the weather is treating Day Two of the Challenge?

See, back on thread......... :D
