A new recruit arrives on the front lines during world war 2.
When he gets there he is told resources are stretched thin and they have not rifles to spare him, although they still expect him to go on patrol.
He goes straight to his captain and explains the situation, the captain hands him a broom and tells him if he sees any Germans to point the broom handle at them and shout “BANG BANG BANGITY BANG” to kill them.
The recruit thinks this is the most ridiculous thing he has ever heard but he has no choice so he agrees and heads out.
While on patrol he comes across a German soldier.
The German reaches for his rifle, so with no other option the recruit points his broom and shouts “BANG BANG BANGITY BANG” and to his surprise the German drops dead.
When he arrives back he immediately thanks the captain.
A couple of weeks went by and our guy had become quite the crack shot, even having a telescopic sight fixed to his broom.
One day he was scouting the enemy position from under some bushes when he bumps into a German crawling the other way, in the cramped space he barely manages to point his broom at the German in time,
so he returns to his captain and demands a weapon for close quarters combat. The captain takes a piece of string out of his drawer and tells him to hit an enemy with it and shout “STAB STAB STABBITY STAB”.
This time he trusts the captain and sure enough it works great.
Another couple of weeks go by and our guy is a legend. He kills dozens of Germans with his broom and string and receives several awards.
One day while on patrol in a forest he sees a crazy German soldier in the distance running towards him and shouting at the top of his voice.
He is pretty confident in his abilities, takes careful aim and shouts “BANG BANG BANGITY BANG” but the German keeps on coming.
He aims again “BANG BANG BANGITY BANG” and again nothing.
The German is getting really close so he takes out his string, but as he swings it out and shouts “STAB STAB STABBITY STAB” the German just runs straight into him, knocking him clear off his feet into a tree and breaking several bones.
As he lies there dying the German slows down and comes back for a look.
He finds our hero lying crushed on the ground asking how this happened. He laughs, turns around and runs off, resuming his shouts of “TANK TANK TANKITY TANK”.
