    Probably not the worst time for the guy he would have shot at.

    Wrong pants, no spats, wrong cap, short sword, and now the gun jams? Is Private Girard Gomer Pyle’s great-uncle?

    French traffic police crack down on parking violations. Film at 10.

    If they had longer rifles they wouldn’t have to stand so close.

    I think the one at the back is wondering why he can’t get a tune out of it.

    Girard had left his spats, blue pants, and fez at home. He could not be expected to participate in the firing squad in that condition.
