Perhaps a wealthy Lord or Barron was tired of his mistresses cat, and asked the armor maker to come up with a, "splendid way to deal with that pesky feline"...

I could see it now...

"Your majesty, have your born witness to my fluffy furball?"

"Erm...*stifles laugh* no my elegant consort, I have not ..."

*BOOM*

Someone at the Guardian got paid more than I earn in a week for writing that. Depressing.

And today, people wondered why a family was afraid that their 22 lbs. cats went ballistic...
Even the dog was reported to be afraid.

:0

Mid-evil times were full time evil, I say. lol

Actually, the US almost tried something similar in WWII against Japan using bats.

They went with nukes instead.

They put nukes on bats?!


They were really BIG bats. Second line.

Perhaps more puzzling is the comment included elsewhere in the picture... something about 'hazzing a cheezburger'...???

That's got historians REALLY baffled...

I got hit by one of those once.
Some people say it's lucky. I disagree.

The Russians did that with dogs. Trained them to run at tanks and then they would blow them up. Didn't always work out so well because the dogs would get scared and come running back. Poor dogs. I love dogs.

Yeah. Dogs are cool.
Especially golden retrievers. My Tucker is a golden retriever.
I would never put a bomb on him...or Crystal, my cat.

Good to see so many of you are having fun with this post!

To be truthful I had second thoughts on rather I should post the OP,
I finally decided that it was interesting good humor and to go for it.
