A man was drafted and sent to boot camp.
At the rifle range, he was given some instructions, a rifle, and bullets. He fired several shots at the target. The report came from the target area that all attempts had completely missed the target.

He put his finger over the end of the rifle barrel and squeezed the trigger with his other hand.
The end of his finger was bl * wn off, whereupon he yelled toward the target area, ‘It’s leaving here just fine; the trouble must be at your end!’
