I don't know why, but I really like this one! LOL!
What's "cannon fodder"?Good catch fey. Hope your hay fever clears up soon Miss Karen :-)
"cannon fodder" are basically pawns, they stand on the front lines and wait for the cannon ball to come and knock them over while the important troops stand behind and be important.
. . .sniff, sniff...a shot put in the dark of night and light of day one cries out. . .
Cannon fodder... Northern troops during the War between the States, basically - only reason Grant won. Lee didn't have enough.(Couldn't resist...I'm a Civil War buff! ...and a Southerner, obviously.)
Brilliance. You couldn't make this stuff up.
erm.... Blackadder goes forth anyone?
At first I was Awwwwww how caring, now that I know what a cannon fodder is I think he may have dissed you! ha ha! Heather

"Cannon fodder" was what my ex called a certain kind of granola bar. If you have more than a bite or two, you get "the runs". Not so funny when you're camping, thankfully we got a spot near the bathrooms.
Fake guys, although of course you'll never admit it.Funny lines, true, but composed by an AWAKE person.

Now this would make for a splendid coffee mug for work, specially right before a meeting announcing a re-org!
Being an online gamer, this one had me rolling around for 5 mins.
I desperately want this quote on a mug that I can bring to work.
Add another vote for wanting this one on merch! My fiancee wants it on a shirt dearly!
