Thinking about this thread. I just remembered something that happened to me about 30 years ago. It involves a P38/John Wayne.
Ya know they tell ya, "When you heat the cans put holes in them first." Well, not everyone follows these direction. Especially a dumb recruit like I
I had heated me up a can of Mac & Cheese on the exhaust manifold of a diesel. Without following the above rule. The can wasn't super duper hot. But I
did have to wear a glove to hold on to it. So I takes me trusty John Wayne and punches a hole in the top of the can.
I'm sure some of you old timers know what happened next.
I got shot in the face with a steaming hot stream of melted cheese! It hurt like an S.O.B. I dropped the can, fell over backwards hollering while
trying to wipe off what felt like molten lava from my face. Luckily none of I got in my eyes. Everyone who was there at the time almost died laughing.
Took a long while for me to live that one down.
