Awww, lets put him into the controller's seat of a drone plane and give him a few medals.

Looks like he's already sporting shoulder boards.

I think they should put him in a little costume with a little cap! That would be so cute. (possibly, maybe my brain is fried with the cuteness that he is!)

/does not dress up pets in clothing
//but puppy!
//look at those eyes! and his little saggy jaw skin! He's so cute!

Here more cuteness: Squeaky frog!

Given the history of royalty in the UK shouldn't that be the opposite?

Named for Chesty Puller, no less.  Not a porn star, surprisingly, but one of the most highly decorated Marines in history.  WWII, Korea, five Navy Crosses, the rest of hsi fruit salad stacked up to his shoulderboards.  You salute that dog if you ever see it.

Well, to be fair in England for much of their history they put their inbreds in charge.

I was thinking they'd have picked one of the first American breeds if the Marines were going to pick a dog for a mascott. Like the American Staffordshire Terrier, or even the Boston Terrier. I'd think the American Staffordshire Terrier would be a no-brainer.

Chesty Puller is also one eminently quotable motherfarker.

psst...hey Rivetman, just so you know calling the Marine Corp the Marine CORE is kind of a running joke around here. It's the same as going into a gun thread and calling a magazine a clip or going into a hot dog thread and claiming ketchup (not catsup) is the superior condiment.

You have certainly made that point extremely clear to myself and many others reading these posts.
Here it is again, since it seems to have whistled by you the first time;

Core

Facepalm



If you want to show your Love of Country and fierce patrioism not to mention your defense of a branch of the U.S. Military, that you never served in, and finally getting in my face with "whats your problem" directed at me obviously is acceptable, especially on FARK.

The disrespect to the United States Marine Corps with your illiteracy certainly is not.

Figured it out yet?

I think we found the newest Marine Core Soldier in Fark.  Who is apparently also too illiterate to read the already posted helpful advice.

OO-Raw(r) & Awww indeed.  Butler Univ (Indpls IN) bulldog mascots are Butler Blue II (Blue) & Butler Blue III (Trip), soon to begin the 2013 Big Dawgs Tour, artistically de-pictured right below.  Trip's a bit older than Chesty.

Rendering of Blue (L) & Trip (R) for Butler Homecoming 2012. Real foto exists, but Blue's a blur in it, so unsuitable. Blue regularly appears on back cover of alumni magazine. Spouse & I are both Butler grads from a lifetime ago.

Patriotism

I am a Veteran and see it as disrespect and not joke.It was a stupid joke to start with and more than likely started from ignorance.

It is also very very tired as most of the stupid fark memes have become.
