Anybody Wanna Buy A Nuclear Warhead?

Just Kidding. It's only an inert training round for the now defunct 280mm M65 'Atomic Annie' tactical nuclear artillery piece. Might make a good conversation piece next to the coffee table and this month's issue of Vogue.

That would look great sitting next to my WWII era Geiger Counter...

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Got any real ones? I could use a couple. Any volume discount?

That's almost, but not quite as bad, as the Davy Crockett nuclear recoilless rifle; where you had to dig a foxhole before using it because it's range was so limited that the person who fired it would be within the weapon's own blast radius.

Facepalm

No No No

Seriously... someone thought that might be a good idea?? How do you pitch that?

"Well, we've got this new weapon design. You fire a small bomb out of a tripod mounted gun."

so far so good, sounds like mortar.

"Yeah, just like mortar, except a bigger explosion."

how big?

"We'll make the explosion so big that it might kill the guy firing it"

uuhhhhh....

"Yeah! And we'll make it a nuke, too. That'll show em!"
