One Blackhorse K Trooper
Is Better Than A 1000 Enemy Soldiers.

A large group of enemy soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a hill. "One Blackhorse K Trooper is better than ten of you guys". The enemy commander quickly orders 10 of his best men over the hill whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes and then, silence.

The K Trooper again calls out "One Blackhorse K Trooper is better than a 100 of you guys". Furious, the enemy commander sends his next best 100 troops over the hill and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again, silence.

The K Trooper once again calls out "One Blackhorse K Trooper is better than a 1000 of you guys". The enraged enemy commander musters 1000 fighters and sends them to the other side of the hill. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades, rockets and cannon fire ring out as a terrible battle is fought.... Then silence.

Finally, one badly wounded enemy fighter crawls back over the hill and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men......its a trap... There's two of them..."
