Kid Rock & Perry Como

Regarding the use of fake legs vs. cadaver legs in the testing of shoes for land mine clearers, and why researchers want to come up with a good fake leg:
In the case of land mine work, the ages are an especially poor match, with the average land mine clearer in his twenties and the average donated cadaver in its sixties. It's like market-testing Kid Rock singles in a roomful of Perry Como fans.
