Load up the cannister! Today we celebrate the 194th anniversary of the day when Wellington trumps Napoleon at a small town in Belgium.
In celebration of this great day, I intend to re-enact the battle of Hougement. My hapless and unsuspecting mailman will play the role of the vile french (actually, I think he's Quebecois but that's close enough for me) and me and my daughters will form line and fire as he as he advances on our humble abode. Take that, Monsieur Emperor! Back to Paris with you!
Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

Flashy, you're absolutely right.
Used to have a wargaming buddy who loudly speculated on how history would have changed (for the better in his opinion), if he could get a gallon of Preparation H to Boney that day.
