Show the Hun you're a son-of-a-gun

Tomorrow will be Armistice Day, 90 years since the Great War ended. That was the war where the lights went out all over Europe. The war to end all wars. I heard somewhere that if you eviscerate a shark it will gobble up its own innards over and over as it bleeds to death in the water. The whole 20th century was kind of like that. Both my grandfathers were soldiers in that war- both for the losing side. You know what? I'll bet they didn't care. I bet anybody still standing on November 11th, 1918 felt like a winner.
