Paul Revere -11 by andrielisilien Paul Revere -11 by andrielisilien
It is far past your bedtime, young man. :iconultraangryplz: Now SCRAM!!



A historical joke inspired by Sarah Palin. It’s just what we Americans do before an attack… we give the enemy a warning with firing gunshots and ringing bells.


This video explains it all --> [link]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Apparently a few of my viewers are from Britain and can't get access to the video. I haven't been able to find the entire clip on youtube, only bits and parts. You may choose to watch these if you so please despite the suggestion the block gives on your webpage.

Here's the first half dealing with Sarah Palin [link]

Then Colbert goes on to share how this American tradition of ringing bells and warning shots have been kept out of our history books for far too long. General Eisenhower (Supreme Commander in WW2) did the same with Hitler by knocking on his door and saying, "Hey Adolf, we're landing at Normandy. Here's a warning shot, DING DONG you !@#$%!" Then on D-Day the troops had large cowbells around their necks while storming the beach.

Last but not least, comes the "historical reenactment" that Colbert performs. You can watch here starting at about 0:55 [link]
