Useless Trivia You Need to Know

Here's a bit of trivia from World War Two I'll bet you didn't know, Concerning the war-time Prime Minister of Japan, Hideki Tojo of Tokyo. After the war hapless Hideki was jailed in Tokyo's Sugamo Prison, Where he was given a new set of dentures 'cause he was losing his'n. A waggish American dentist, determined to make a lasting 'impression', Etched on Tojo's choppers in Morse Code this immortal expression: 'REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR" - 'Twas America's stirring battle cry! He eternally gnashes his teeth in perdition after he was hanged to die! Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired (c) All Rights Reserved True Story!!!

Now that's a great story, Bob. Well, the opportunity was there and I can only bet that the dentist felt pretty good about it. Nice bit of trivia, my friend.... Robert.

Well, that was an interesting story told in poetic form but what a waste to give a dying man new teeth..Should have saved that work for someone who was going to live longer..Thanks for the visit to my page..Sara
