The great man who paved the way for action movies and was the inventor of the one liner.

Known to many as simply: "The Duke".

He starred in such great movies as The Alamo, The War Wagon, True Grit, and many, many more.
John Wayne could have worn high heels, a flowered dress, and makeup and still have been eight times the man you are.

"The other day, I ate four Baked Potatoes while watching a John Wayne movie. It was one of the manliest nights of my life."

"John Wayne" is the term often used to describe the toilet paper issued in the compo rations kit in the military. This is due to the fact that he was "Rough, tough, and he took no shit fron nobody!"

slang for the government issue p 38 can opener. The P-38 can opener is a small device issued in the canned field rations of the United States Armed Forces from World War II to the 1980s. Originally designed for and distributed in the K-ration, it was later included in the C-ration.

It was developed in 1942.

Nicknamed the "John Wayne" because he was shown in a training film opening a can of K-Rations, the can opener is keychain sized and consists of a short metal blade that serves as a handle (and also a screwdriver to the resourceful), with a small, hinged metal tooth that folds out to pierce the can lid. A notch just under the hinge point keeps the opener hooked around the rim of the can as the device is "walked" around to cut the lid out. A larger version called the P-51 is somewhat easier to operate.

I'm going to get the john wayne out of my pack so we can open these cans.
