Not so fast, Colonel! Those greenbacks must be considered as contraband, subject to the rules of war and immediate impoundment. I have the keys to the impoundment locker and the werewithal to enforce the rules of war.

However, should you care to state that you instead came into a private inheritance as the cause of your celebration, I would be impelled to look the other way. In that circumstance, of course, you'd be obilgated to keep your half of the wealth!

Shall we adjourn to the bar, sir?

Ah, thank you for the tip of the hat Lieutenant Colonel Sickbert, let us share a drink??

General Meyers and General Sands, can something that is already contraband, be contraband?? Like contraband contraband.... :idea:

Reason I say it, is because it has already been contraband, in fact I got it from when Lieutenant Colonel Sickbert fled the field in our last battle!! :twisted: :oops: :mrgreen: :lol: 8)

How's that for some disclosure.... :lol: :wink:

In this case the answer is YES; contraband can subsequently become contraband again!

(Otherwise I should be bereft of my share of it!)

Why you rapscallating scoundrel! Don't you be trying to shift the schwerpunkt of the conversation now. The only fledding going on betwixt us was you and your skinny behind as you high tailed it down the path to the outhouse during a parlay. Never seen such a fancified Prussianated fellow that couldn't hold his rot gut any better than that.

Again, towards a less mendacious answer to General Sands most thoughtful query, "where did a sneaky, low-down, rapscallion rebel get GREENBACKS?"

Barkeep, another round if you please.... the Mad Rascal Ludwig's tongue needs to be loosened a bit more I say!
