Anyone can post a funny! Anyone?

Here is a S-A marked in the slingwell!
Look how crisp the this baby is with that CC, hardly any signs of sanding! Clown
It would seem Springfield was not getting enough credit for their stocks because collectors could not find the marking in the slingwell, so to boost their street credibility, for future collectors, then started marking the slinwell as well, just like a real WW2 stock should!


In fairness to the seller he states he "restores" stocks and that he added the Springfield stamps.

A few months ago I ran across a needed round Winchester bolt on eBay for a very fair price. The seller  stated that it was stamped with a "W". The pictures were crappy so I couldn't tell for sure, but I bought it. Turns out the stamped "W" was actually a paint stamped "M" and the bolt was a post-war replacement. I asked for a refund and it was granted. But the prique turned around a relisted it as a Winchester bolt and sold it to someone who didn't know better. 
  The pictures tell it all-

Amusing
I got about halfway through. 
His comment about making their way to the trenches reminded me of the story of a visitor to a battlefield.  The visitor supposedly says something to the effect of "Isn't a good thing this park was here so they would have a place for the battle."
I've heard some comments pretty close to that so I can beleive it happened.

Snagged that pic off Gunbroker years ago, IRRC, nobody bid on it. Some sellers have absolutely no scruples.

Attributed to Colonel Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller during the Chosin Reservoir campaign in Korea, November 1950. Quoted in Marine! The Life of LtGen Lewis B. (Chesty) Puller, USMC (Ret.)

"We've been looking for the enemy for several days now, we've finally found them. We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them."

Only one partial answer so it goes to Smokepole for the "Tip jet" or "Ram jet" helicopter.
and yes they could be quite noisy. If anyone is familiar with a pulse jet engine they would know

"'Little Henry': World's First Ram-Jet Helicopter!"

They did experiment with a copter that had small jets on the ends of the rotor blades. They gave up on it rather quickly since it was far noisier that the conventional rotor.

1948
Jack
Armstrong
The All American Boy
by Bob Schoenke

Jack and Billy, flying in Heli-packs, are looking over a large estate from which they suspect munitions are being smuggled to the Middle East.
Billy: I don't see anything suspicious Jack.
Jack: seems to be just an ordinary... Say, that garage is unusually large

Billy:there's no pier... How could they possibly load a ship from this place?
Jack: It's getting dark, let's get back.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/uploads/3657/funniesJack1.jpg

Jack: Hi, Joy! Still Here? We came back for something.
Billy: Some equipment for seeing in the dark.

http://www.uscarbinecal30.com/forum/uploads/3657/funniesJack2.jpg

Billy: We'll be back soon, Joy. Stay right hear in the car.
Joy: Ah wish you all wouldn't be too long, 'cause ah'm gettin' jumpy all alone in these ol' woods.

From 1946 on the Sniperscope ans the Snooperscope was all the rage, as seen here in the comics section.
What type carbine and make?
What model scope?

Seems loose lips, and the "News" sinks ships!
Was there really a "Jet" powered helicopter back then?

What other interesting item was mentioned?

Happy Sunday!
