THINKING???  Two Generals sat in the Officers Club late one night wondering just how they might get another star now that the war was over and there was a surplus of General officers..  The O-8 said to O-7, ya know the Mustang was a mighty good plane maybe the best fighter ever made. In reply the 0-7 said it sure was and if we could figure out a better plane we would get our next star easy.  0-8  said we sure would but with all those surplus Mustangs sitting around I just don't know how we would do that.  O-7 replied our new fighter would have to be twice as good for sure.  O-8,What did you say?  That's it.  We'll put 2 mustangs together and it will be twice as good.  We're saved.

 

Their math didn't quite work out but it was 1/2 as good.
