It is not a good idea to show up at the recruiting office. They won't get the joke and they will find a job for her.

This grandmother is the new face of the US Army, and you will be looking at it when she rips your still-beating heart from your chest and shows it to you.

And the last thing you smell will be patchouli.

The Marines, as well as the Armed Forces, like Fresh Meat.

they want 'em young, dumb, and full of Cum.

she's not Fresh enough and would probably ask too many questions.........
 
2009-03-05 02:02:35 PM
I bet the Drill Sergeant at boot camp would really appreciate her making him brush his teeth, wash behind his ears, and wear his galoshes when it rains. But the delicious oatmeal raisin cookies would make up for it.

Russ1642: It is not a good idea to show up at the recruiting office. They won't get the joke and they will find a job for her.

THIS! I remember a lil guy in basic who was mentally retarted and had a head so large that they didnt actually have a hat or helmet large enough to fit him, not even close. It took the D.I's about 20 seconds to figure out that the kid wasnt just 'recruit-shocked', he was mentally gone bye bye. Nobody home and the light bulbs failin fast. We guess it was some sick joke by some recruiter, the Sargents were PISSED but the look on the C.O's face....whew damn, you just knew, just KNEW somebody was gonna pay for that bad idea.

Because if you call a marine navy, they punch you in the face, so I used the word technically

Ah yes, the infantry and Marines are scrounging for troops while slashing personnel pay, benefits and medical care. Meanwhile, the Pentagon pukes are dumping dumping billions into Star Wars and the new (uber-expensive) F35, which replaces the F22 that was finally delivered, at three times its estimated cost and behind schedule - and is already considered obsolete by 'military experts' despite being the most advanced jet fighter on the planet.

So we'll spend $300 billion on the F35 (aka jet jock toy), and sell the old F22s to every Third World air force on earth, thus making sure that "defense" contractors keep raking it in by making ever more grossly expensive machinery to combat goat herders and old MIGs, while they also gain the maintenance and spare parts contracts for our potential military adversaries.

Obviously, this system has nothing to do with 'national defense.'

/Military procurement: Vying for Wall Street deregulation and corporate health care swindles as the biggest threat to our economy. Because they're really just friggin' tax parasites wrapped in the flag.

I mean, I agree that military procurement is farked up. But this is so full of factual errors that it makes you look foolish to anyone who follows defense matters remotely.

I got one of those when I went down to the 25 ID Education Center and registered for college. It got stuck up on the barrack's bulletin board right next to the Waihawa Police Ticket for Drunk Walking (not mine).

Considering the low standards and desperation of the United States armed forces, maybe this wasn't an error.

I want so badly for the letter to have been addressed to "PFC The Southern Dandy" instead of your legal name. Therefore I shall pretend it is so, and in my fantasy world everything is perfect.
