A Low-Stress Nukes Story

Here's a nukes anecdote that will not freak you out.  My friend Roy was part of the team that built nukes in France--the ones designed to blow towards Germany, I assume.  He used to tell how he would assemble teams that played to the strengths of varying nationalities.  "And the Swiss provided the glue," he said.

I assumed he meant management skill, organizational knowhow, team spirit.

"No, no man, the glue.  The  Swiss make great glue."

Afterthought:  You hold together a nuclear power plant with glue?
