Dunno, but where I come from, it's Navy-Army.

The longer end is the Navy end because they have submarines that dive deep

I always heard that the long end was the navy because they had gone off the deep end and the short end was the Army end because they make short work of things.

Would you guess this description came from an Army surgeon?!

I was told that the army end is the short end b/c they always get the short end of the stick.
