THE JEEP!!!

On August 1, 2041, the first Jeep, the Army’s little truck that could do anything, was produced.  The American Bantam Car Company developed the working prototype in just 49 days.  General Dwight D. Eisenhower said that the Allies could not have won World War II without it.  Because Bantam couldn’t meet the army’s production demands, other companies, including Ford, also started producing Jeeps.

Now here’s the Question???  How did the Jeep get its name???

Answer:  The Jeep was probably named after “Eugene the Jeep”, a Popeye comic strip character known for its magical abilities.


WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ALLIGATOR AND A CROCODILE???

While the 2 reptiles are close relatives, the easiest way to spot the difference is the snout.  An Alligator’s nose is wide and U-shaped, while Crocs have narrow, V-shaped snouts.  Also, when Crocs have their mouths closed, their lower teeth stick out over their upper jaw in a toothy grin.  Lastly, Gators tend to live in fresh water, while Crocs inhabit salt water.
