Talk about all things M*A*S*H -- the novel, the film, the television series, even the play. Not to mention the spin-offs, merchandise, cast, crew and anything else you can think of to talk about.

200 Things I Learned from Watching MASH..

Post by Mrs Tuttle » Fri Sep 16, 2011 10:10 pm

Ok, so this is an idea i had from a thread in the off topic section of this board. Basically, everyone comes up with different things they learned from MASH and post them here, and see how many we can come up with..

I'll start..

#1 - If you are going to get a tattoo, get a calender. That way, atleast it will be useful for a year.

Close. I think it was Hawkeye and/or Bj that said it.. It's just something that i've always remembered, although it didn't stop me from getting a tatoo ;)

#3. Nailing someones boot to the floor and loosening the salt shaker lid, are not very 'original' pranks.. :bj2:
