“FALL OUT WITH YOUR BAYONETS!
A hundred twenty pairs of boots go pounding out of the barracks with bayonets, coming to a stop at the company assembly point.
“The army has decided to give us new bayonets. This is a new style. It’s a little shorter but it is extremely sharp. Whatever you do, DON’T TOUCH THE TIP OF THE BAYONET! It’s really sharp.”
(Sergeant passes out 120 new bayonets.)
Ten seconds later there are 120 men with blood running down their finger.
