Someday, Iraqi gazelles will topple a statue of U.S. Marines.

My younger brother used to go out with SEALS on training exercises (he was a medic). They would trap damn near everything and eat every last scrap - minus the poopie stuff. He said they would try to gross him out by eating eyeballs in front of him. I think I'll pass.

Thats pretty cool, that sort of thing makes me want to go camping with nothing but a swiss army knife...

I heard about this guy that like one time he was like in the woods, and he like got attacked by a puma, and he like totally killed the puma with a 4 inch pocket knife. TOTALLY!
 
2003-04-18 02:36:34 PM  
I thought it was a cougar Suburban, and, like it was this 60-something year old guy who totally FLIPPED OUT on it with the knife.

Only a marine would hunt with rocks and pistols when they've got rifles.
 
2003-04-18 03:24:00 PM  
They should hunt the gazelles with tanks. :)

i don;t understand this, we don;t feed our own troops?
 
2003-04-18 03:25:21 PM  
dunno. After a couple of months of MRE's I'd go hunting too. You know you've been eating that shiat too long when it starts tasting good.
 
2003-04-18 03:25:39 PM  
Gazelles are delicious.

Dude, READ the article. The Marines didn't want to use their rifles for fear it would be mistaken as combat fire. Genius
 
2003-04-18 03:26:35 PM  
Guy - Didn't you read the story. They can't use the rifles because it might be misconstrued as a gunfight. But still, one thinks that a Marine would probably have used his bare hands given the opportunity. Or a ballpoint pen. You know, to keep in practice.

/is afeared of them there Marines.
 
2003-04-18 03:26:36 PM  
It wasn't a 4" pocket knife or an old man. It was a ninja and he pulled out a guitar and TOTALLY WAILED on it with his HUGE BONER until the animal just went nuts and his head exploded.
 
2003-04-18 03:27:46 PM  
That's awesome. Marines rule.

Now if only they were allowed to hunt Saddam's private stash of PETA representatives...

2003-04-18 03:27:48 PM  
finally, we found some GMD -gazelles of mass destruction...........this justifies everything........
 
2003-04-18 03:28:13 PM  
When it is a choice between and MRE and fresh gazelle, well I don't think that is much of a choice.

The troops have outlived their usfulness. They are no longer required. Saddam has fallen. It is cheeper to let the current troops die and train new ones to replace them.

Adam_cole: Now that's just silly....


Ninja's don't get random boners, they're in control.
 
2003-04-18 03:28:58 PM  
ok, what did I do wrong there?
 
2003-04-18 03:29:06 PM  
Wouldn't shooting a gazelle with an M-16 reduce it to a pile of feathers and ashes?
 
2003-04-18 03:29:13 PM  
Dont they have Spam like they did in WW2?

Did anyone notice the lack of press coverage on the 10k people in Iraq that protested against the USA? If we are going to cover less than 100 people getting excited about a statue of Hussein could we at least have a bit more news coverage about 10k protesting the American presence?

/runs like fat gazelle.

Jakjak:

how do you know the ninja didnt want the boner?

Chellenger:

do you think that gazelles are birds?
 
2003-04-18 03:30:29 PM  
The gazelle's spokesman, however, later denied the reports, saying "It's a blatant propaganda lie! Gazelles are crushing the infidels right now!"

Dude, READ the article. The Marines didn't want to use their 9mm PISTOLS for fear it would be mistaken as combat fire. That's why they used rocks at first. Genius

Would be the sweet life if they could eat gazelle for dinner, then eat Giselle Bundchen for desert.

What? No "PETA Surrenders" tag?
 
2003-04-18 03:32:41 PM  
Jeezus - what kind of filthy crap is being served in MRE's if stringy, gamey Gazelle meat is considered superior?

MRE must include "McRibs" or something ...
