PRODUCT WARNING!

Post by KAV » Wed Sep 15, 2010 5:30 pm

I picked up a full 7 oz bar of Pre de Provence in vanilla bean from Phil.
The scent, like all I've tried is very nice.
However, the large BRICK is a handfull and I dropped it in the shower. It dropped squarely between my vulnerable toes. I leaned over to pick it up. The bar was unscathed. My shower floor has a dent not unlike photos of damaged dreadnaughts at Scapa Flow after Jutland. :shock:

Is it similar to the cannon that is on display near Yorktown battlefield, where the British cannonball bounced off the Yankee cannon just as Lafayette was standing, in the heat of battle? It is said that later on, as the cannon was displayed somewhere, Lafayette happened to see it and remarked, "is that the cannon that saved my life?"

Deadlier!
The british best friend in combat seems the weather. Modern research shows the french charged down a rain soaked field at Agincourt and fell victim as much to a narrowing and declining field turned melee as longbows.
Again, at Waterloo Napoleon's vaunted artillary shot merely bogged in soggy fields.
In WW1 a Sopwith Pup engaged a zeppelin in rain. His gun jammed. A hammer was carrieed to beat the receiver and free stuck cartridges from cold or defect. It was to no avail. In frustration the pilot flung the hammer at the airship and seconds later found himself blown several hundred feet higher by a huge explosion.
The lesson, armed with french soap or other is to avoid combat with the brits in wet weather. :lol:

Under the circumstances KAV, I suggest that you pass on the Claus Porto cakes then ( chuckle ).

Hmmm... If I ever need to put a bar of soap in a sock, I'll remember this post... :)

Yeah, I've still got a few bricks of that Claus Porto stuff but having dropped one in the shower they are now consigned to jacuzzi use only.
