Bang, you're dead!

This is just too funny... If you remember, there was a recent article that detailed how the Canadian Armed Forces had run out of money and couldn't afford training ammunition that fired from regular weapons a black substance instead of bullets. The soldiers were forced to rent paintball guns and gear out of their own pockets. The armed forces stated that while this had a big impact on the physics of the firefights, this was still better than blanks because blanks gave no indication of who was hit.

Well, the British army just one-upped we Canadians. Due to a misprediction in required ammo, the British have run out of blanks, forcing soldiers during training exercises to yell "BANG! BANG!" instead.
