    Brings to mind Chesty Puller, the “Marines’ Marine.”

    The Korean War, in which the Marine Corps fought and won some of its most brutal battles, was not without its gallows humor.

    During a brutal battle during the Korean War, a ROK (Republic of Korea) commander, whose unit was fighting along with the Marines, called legendary Marine Chesty Puller to report a major Chinese attack in his sector.

    “How many Chinese are attacking you?” asked Puller.

    “Many, many Chinese!” replied the excited Korean officer.

    Puller asked for another count and got the same answer “Many, many

    Chinese!”

    “X*#dammit!” swore Puller, “Put my Marine liaison officer on the radio.”

    In a minute, an American voice came over the air: “Yes sir?”

    “Lieutenant,” growled Chesty, “exactly how many Chinese you got up there?”

    “Colonel, we got a whole shitload of Chinese up here!”

    “Thank God,” exclaimed Puller, “at least there’s someone up there who

    knows how to count!”

    If Wirecutter had written it, it would read “shit ton”.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
