SpaceMonkey-66: Well, yeah, man, you see, like, all the tanks we come up against are bigger and better than ours, so all we can hope to do is, like, scare 'em away, y'know. This gun is an ordinary 76mm but we add this piece of pipe onto it, and the Krauts think, like, maybe it's a 90mm. We got our own ammunition, it's filled with paint. When we fire it, it makes... pretty pictures. Scares the hell outta people! We have a loudspeaker here, and when we go into battle we play music, very loud. It kind of... calms us down.


If he hadn't been an absolute space-cadet who despised authority, he'd have made a hell of a good tank platoon commander.

ClavellBCMI: SpaceMonkey-66: About six weeks ago, I was making that movie quote (negative waves, Moriarity) to my wife, and she had never seen Kellys Heroes before.  She's not the type for war movies, but watched it with me and absolutely loved it.   Oddball has always been one of my favorite movie characters, bar none.  And, even though he's a hippie in WW2, he seemed to be good at his job, with the right motivation 😜

He had to have some idea of what he was doing to be made a tank commander to begin with, and his official CO had to have been a bit of a character to begin with to let Oddball slide.


Yea I'm surprised his CO didn't loose his head over the behavior. Oh wait...
