Ruthless T. Firefly

When his generals' course proves too tame,
At the enemy's forces he'll aim
It's brutal, but, oops!
He shoots his own troops
Oh, the men and the horses he'll maim.

In one of the edgiest moments of Duck Soup (Leo McCarey; 1933),.Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx), the president of Freedonia, mows down his own soldiers.
