Pat Who?

Today in class, students started laughing in the scene in Patton where he slapped the soldier with combat fatigue (aka shell shock aka Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome).

They thought that even if there had been a person named Patton, he certainly wouldn’t have slapped anyone.

In a sense, Patton was a cartoon character come to life, albeit with an adult rating, but I’d think halfway through my comments, they’d get the message that this guy was real.
