Oh would you look at that, another history comic. I haven’t done this in forever. I’ve missed it as I went through the stages in creating this (collecting information, scribbling down a rough draft, etc). This WW2 fact presented itself to me over the Internet and I can’t stop laughing about it. So today you get to learn about this crazy plan of the Allies that worked marvelously.
For some odd reason camel dung was a good luck charm for the Germans while in North Africa during World War 2. They made a habit in running over the stuff with their tanks which the Allies noticed. Weird tradition alright but Jasper Maskelyn (British magician) had a stroke of genius with this. As part of his long list of wartime deceptions (dummy troops, fake tanks, etc) Maskelyn created land mines disguised as these turds that were so desirable to the Germans. You know what happens when a tank runs over a mine, right? No more tank and the pathway gets ruined as well.
Now here comes the funny part. The Germans were able to catch on to this deception and so they would avoid camel dung that was fresh. Well, the Allies caught on to their catching on and altered the appearance of the “special mine” to have tank tracks. So it seemed safe to run over because it looked like another tank went over it before. The Germans went for it all the same. They just couldn’t help themselves, they HAD to run over that poop no matter what and the British took advantage of that to the fullest. So much for good luck.
I found dozens of websites about this which are easy to find but the spark of inspiration came from The Good Mythical Morning Show: 7 Surprising Uses For Poop www.youtube.com/watch?annotati… (This fun fact is at 5:25)
