We all know Nazis were dicks. It's in the history books.
But Captain America's WWII sidekick Bucky experienced it firsthand:
Luckily, these Nazis weren't very intelligent--showing your prisoners that your guns aren't loaded--?! Do people get any dumber than that?
But what comes next doesn't make a ton of sense:
(Tales of Suspense #67, Jul. 1965)
Wait--they were using blanks? I thought their guns weren't even loaded--but you can see their guns firing here--but then when the prisoners take the guns and start shooting back...are they firing more blanks?? Whaaaat?????
And what do they mean that Bucky "heard of dot trick from somevon"? Didn't they just tell him they were blanks? But then the guy in the last panel says "That's right! He knew--and he told us!"
I'm guessing this is one of those times were writing a billion different comics each month started to catch up with Stan Lee.
