    Ironic. Wasn't it Napoleon who stated something to the effect " If I had enough ribbon I could conquer the world". The statement I believe was in regard to rewarding his men with ribbons to honor their accomplishments. I will fact check myself now.

    Yup. It was Napoleon.

    And now of course the idiom about meeting one's Waterloo will take on all the poignancy of going to Baskin Robbins and finding out your favorite flavor is on vacation.
