A funny story...

Whilst in the historical frame of mind:

During the Civil War, a contractor who had bought his way into the Federal purchasing queue via Simon Cameron (Sadly, a Pennsylvanian) delivered a shipment of boots to the army. When told that they fell apart after two miles of marching, he replied, straight-faced, to the quartermaster...Oh, those boots were meant for the cavalry.
