Default You gotta be shittin' me!

Have you ever wondered where the phrase, "You gotta be shittin' me!" came
from? Well, it just so happens to have originated through the Father of our
Country Way back when, George Washington was crossing the Delaware River
with his troops. There were 33 [remember this number] in Washington's boat.
It was extremely dark and storming furiously and the water was tossing them about.

Finally, Washington grabbed Corporal Peters [remember this name] and
stationed him at the front of the boat with a lantern. He ordered him to
keep swinging it, so they could see where they were heading. Corporal
Peters, through driving rain and cold, continued swinging the lantern
back
and forth, back and forth.

Then a big gust of wind and a wave hit and threw Corporal Peters and his
lantern into the Delaware. Washington and his troops searched for nearly an
hour trying to find Corporal Peters, but to no avail. All of them felt
terrible, for the Corporal had been one of their favorites.

Sometime later, Washington and his troops landed on the other side, wet and
totally exhausted. He rallied the troops and told them that they must go
on. Another hour later, one of his men said, "General, I see lights ahead."

They trudged toward the lights and came upon a huge house. What they didn't
know, was that this was a house of ill repute hidden in the forest to serve all who came.

General Washington pounded on the door, his men crowding around him. The
door swung open, and much to his surprise stood a beautiful woman. A huge
smile came across her face, to see so many men standing there.

Washington was the first to speak, "Madam, I am General George Washington
and these are my men. We are tired, wet, exhausted, and desperately need warmth and comfort."

Again, the Madam looked at all the men standing there, and with a broad
smile on her face, said, "Well, General, you have come to the right place.
We can surely give you warmth and comfort. How many men do you have?"

Washington replied, "Well, madam, there are 32 of us, without Peters."

And
the Madam said, "You gotta be shittin' me!"
