    Have you ever wondered who first uttered the phrase
    "You Gotta Be Shittin Me?"


    Well, it just so happens to have originated through the Father of Our country, way back when George Washington was crossing the Delaware river with his troops.
    There were 33 (remember this number) in Washington 's boat. It was
    extremely dark and storming furiously and the water was tossing them about.


    Finally, Washington grabbed Corporal Peters (remember this name) and
    stationed him at the front of the boat with a lantern. He ordered him
    to keep swinging it, so they could see where they were heading.


    Corporal Peters, through driving rain and cold, continued swinging the
    lantern back and forth, back and forth.
    Then a big gust of wind and a wave hit and threw Corporal Peters and his
    lantern into the Delaware . Washington and his troops searched for nearly an hour trying to find Corporal Peters, but to no avail. All of them
    felt terrible, for the Corporal had been one of their favorites.


    Sometime later, Washington and his troops landed on the other side, wet and totally exhausted. He rallied the troops and told them that they must go on.


    Another hour later, one of his men said, 'General, I see lights ahead.'
    They trudged toward the lights and came upon a huge house.
    What they didn't know was that this was a house of ill repute, hidden in
    the forest to serve all who came.

    General Washington pounded on the door, his men crowding around him.

    The door swung open, and much to his surprise stood a beautiful woman.
    A huge smile came across her face, to see so many men standing there.
    Washington was the first to speak, 'Madam, I am General George Washington and these are my men. We are tired, wet, exhausted, and
    desperately need warmth and comfort.'

    Again, the Madam looked at all the men standing there, and with a broad smile on her face, said, 'Well, General, you have come to the right place. We can surely give you warmth and comfort. How many men do you have?'


    Washington replied, 'Well, Madam, there are 32 of us without Peters .'
    And the Madam said, 'You gotta be shittin me.'
