Can you fill in the blanks to these Col. Potterisms?

Hopefully this quiz won't have your morale level 'lower than a gopher's basement.'

If you need to get your point across or call somebody out without using profanity, seek advice from Col. Sherman T. Potter. 

The man in charge of the 4077th on M*A*S*H certainly had plenty of reasons and opportunities to swear, but generally kept things G-rated. What he lacks in actual swears he makes up for in creativity, alliteration and assertiveness. Of course, were talking about the "Potterisms." 

There's been too many across Harry Morgan's eight seasons on the show to count, but we can certainly highlight some of Col. Potter's best, and test your knowledge at the same time! 

Channel your inner-Potter to fill in the blanks to these various and often animal-food combos that created Col. Potter's eloquent language! 

Good luck!

11/12 - I know he said "Bushwa!" at least once, same episode when he said "Holy Hemostat!" ("April Fools"). BTW, I undsrstand that "April Fools" was the last time Klinger wore drag on the show (his Cleopatra outfit).

Geez. A disproportionate number of his lil' sayings sure seem to relate to what an animal leaves behind. lol.

Good Ole Col. Potter, an inspiration to us all. If you like his character in MASH, watch him in the movie the Flim Flam Man, he plays a southern sheriff.

6/12; 1, 2, 7, 9, 10 and 11. Somewhat disappointing.
8. Easiest one of the dozen. Surpassed by this, though.
