Why is the father working at a pizza joint? Shouldn't he be out shooting people or whatever?

These surprise-dad-returning videos make my skin crawl on five different levels. Yeah, it's a DefCon 5.

1. They're all based on a style of war propaganda from the Iraq War.
2. The local TV whores know it's an easy story.
3. The business or baseball team posturing that it's for 'Merica, and not for their own free publicity.
4. The parents who arrange these things have an odd combination of attention whoredom and sh*tty parenting going on.
5. Seeing the people who supported the war and the Bush Administration get all misty-eyed at these videos. You can see these same types gathering at Arlington National Cemetery at the Tomb of the Unknowns. It's their Mecca.

It's a heartwarming story and all, but I think the tag for this story should be *sick*, because of the taco pizza.

SirEattonHogg: I'm not convinced about taco pizza.

I like pizza.  I like tacos.  The two together?  You're taking 2 great foods and making them into a single abomination. .

"pizza burger" is another example.


Or "sushi sundae".

August11: So is this the war of the goofy homecoming surprise?


I remember my dad surprising us that he was back from the Vietnam War "Conflict." He was at the kitchen table reading the paper when we got home from school. "Dad!" we yelled, running over to him. He hollered, "Can't you see I'm reading the paper? SHUT UP!" And then he beat us with our own shoes for not taking them off at the door. It was so good for our lives to get back to normal.

I'd be OK with the whole thing if it weren't aired on TV (or otherwise passed off as news).  I see nothing wrong with surprising your kids after being away like that.  These guys/gals are heroes after all. They may not all be "war" heroes, but they are certainly heroes to their kids.  Airing it on TV just makes if feel like more disaster porn.

These are all government propaganda pieces, right? I can't imagine many people, who after multiple tours of blowing people's heads off, would want to delay seeing their loved ones even one minute longer than necessary in order to make a heartwarming, viral homecoming video.

Either someone can't count to three properly, or there's a black-sheep kid who had to sit in the car and miss out.

Proudly serving his country... tonight's special.

Coming on a Bicycle: 'the' war? What war?


There isn`t a war, that takes an attacker and a defender.

All the good ol USA has to do to stop the conflict is to stop attacking and go home...

Here`s a thought, maybe don`t go into another country and start killing people, maybe they might think you nicer than if you did?

Fear the Clam: thisdaydreamer: Seriously, this never gets old.

Yeah, it does. This was old years ago. We get it, you couldn't get a real job so you joined the military and now we're all supposed to be thrilled that you managed to stick it out for a couple of years. Whoopie. It's the adult job equivalent of the kindergarden "graduation."

Thank god president peace-prize has ended all wars so everyone's daddy can come home.

You should try the onion blossom - it's amazing.
The genius of it is, you soak it in ice water for an hour so it holds its shape. Then you deep-fry it, root-side up, for about five minutes.

Considering that Obama never campaigned on such a platform, I don't know why you would expect that to have happen.

tetsoushima: We could just, you know, end the war or something?


sure, and maybe end hunger and poverty while we're at it.

ace in your face: So as I lay here right now my friend is picking up her husband at the airport. He has been gone ten months because he got reassigned to the states and she had a visa problem and couldn't leave Germany. Her kids are downstairs sleeping and have no clue who is going to wake them up. It's going to be a great day!!!!!


That's awesome! Savor it, and bring some kleenex.

Isn't a taco pizza just "nachos"?
 
2013-07-16 10:13:00 AM  
Taco pizza sounded gross, until I saw it in that video.
 
2013-07-16 10:32:53 AM  
Living in the Quad Cities my whole life I sometimes forget not all people know what Taco Pizzas are. Every pizza place here carries them, even the big chains like Pizza Hut and Papa John's. My favorite taco pizza is the Nacho Joe from Happy Joe's. It's basically just the Taco Pizza, but instead of taco sauce, they use a nacho cheese sauce.
 
2013-07-16 10:46:23 AM  
My friend came back from Iraq to surprise his parents, except he was in a human farking pizza box or coffin.

Now jonesing for a Taco Supreme.  Thanks, subby!

We need to order the Let's-Get-Out-Now special, hold the theocracy. KBR gets the check.

No he didn't, and the only one spinning is you. Obama campaigned on ending the Iraq war, but also increased our military presence in Afghanistan.

"As Obama removes our combat brigades from Iraq, he will send at least two additional brigades to Afghanistan, where the Taliban is resurgent. He will also provide our armed forces with the reset capability that they need. He will replace essential equipment, and he will ensure that our men and women in uniform get the care and support they have earned."

-A 21st century military for America

Obama was never a pacifist or even pretended to be one. If Americans wanted a pacifist president they would have elected or at least nominated Dennis Kucinich or Ron Paul, but that's not what the majority or either party wanted. Obama has use military resources more wisely than Bush, however low that bar may have been set.

Speaking of Bush, I remember a candidate George Bush discussing how he would never involve himself in nation building in a debate with Al Gore. At that time I had a decision to make and decided to join the army and took Bush at his word and thought he was just a harmless fool. How wrong I was, at least had I made that decision eight years later I would know exactly what I was getting into.
