I saw this a few days ago, and I must confess it made me laugh out loud. And like any good joke, it contains a healthy dose of the truth. (ETP0802, I think you will agree.)
Been around for a few days, but MajWDC sent it in, and as he’s been off the net for a bit, we’ll post it up for him. Still funny, no matter what!
Yes! QUANTICO, VA — After failing to capitalize Marine in an official media release, a Public Affairs sergeant was verbally reprimanded and publicly executed Friday before a crowd of spectators outside the Marine Corps Museum, officials report. Let that be a lesson to you all.
It’s never not funny to stick it to those stuffed shirt fucks at West Point, e-s-p-e-c-i-a-l-l-y using their own words. *** Full disclosure: I’ve worked with and for a few West Pointers, a couple of them Marines, and some are outstanding officers and gentlemen. Most, however, are overbearing fuck-heads.
More unadulterated greatness from the DuffelBlog: “We made it about as authentic as we could,” said gunman Tariq Saifullah, referring to the attack in the Korengal Valley that left seven dead and twenty wounded. “We even started by stabbing a pregnant woman to death, but there was some confusion since that’s typically done by the groom following the ceremony.” While deploring the violence, HBO executives are hopeful that the killings are a sign that more and more people in this nation of 31 million potential viewers are watching the show.

HA! FORT HOOD, TX – As conventional budget cuts loom on the heels of sequestration, leaders across the military are considering innovative and helpful ways to lower operating costs without hurting unit training or weapons qualifications. However, one common-sense suggestion — “a no-brainer” according to one Pentagon official — has ruined at least one officer’s career on the sprawling Army base of Fort Hood. The suggestion: shrink the enormous 1st Cavalry Division patch down to a size comparable to the rest of the military. Yeah– why is that thing so big? Remember, we Marines nixed the division patches on the uniforms because they’re [...]
MDL sent this in. Pretty neat. “Now Dave Uhrig, a Chillicothe, Ohio, tank broker…” Only in America. I love it.

Over at the Duffel Blog the latest planning tool has been introduced.
They’ve done it again. Other Marines reported more graphic depictions of sex acts and the ensuing pitfalls. “Hey, don’t be a dummy, cum on her tummy. We don’t want to add or detract from the population this weekend,” said Bowling, according to witnesses at the brief. “He kept using these weird code words and innuendo,” said LCpl. Jeff Storm. “Stuff like ‘if you’re planning on sending rounds downrange, use a blank adaptor, because you don’t want to get rodded off the range.’” Annddd, it goes downhill from there. :-) You’ll love it. The best part of course is that haven’t [...]
