http://www.griffinhistorical.com. A delicious decadent historical trifle. Thick performance jelly topped with lashings of imaginative creamy custard. You may also get a soggy event management sponge finger but it won't cost you hundreds and thousands.

As seen on the US program about unit clearance specialists. (Can't recall the actual program name.)

The piece was test fired against a Water Melon with EPIC effect.
Nice kick to it too :D

Sold for $4400 .
