Look, Chief, you can't go off half-cocked looking for
vengeance against a fish. That shark isn't evil. It's not
a murderer. It's just obeying its own instincts. Trying to
get retribution against a fish is crazy.

If it hadn't have been his finger would it have been the customer's neck?

Bobs wins another one, and he was the only one to pick W. N.
PS, Thankfully the above William pic was not as a result of him dying in the war.  He was the head of some kind of department in the business world.  Obviously he was in the military, and perhaps that was the only photo available for the article.

I want that big Arrow Head saw blade.  I'll nail it to a wall as a memento of my work in the timber industry.  But who sells it?  I'll give you 100 points if you send me to the right place.
