An Army grunt stands in the rain with a 35 lb. pack on his back, 15 lb. weapon in hand, after having marched 12 miles, and says, "This is crazy s***!"
An Army Airborne Ranger stands in the rain with a 45 lb. pack on his back, weapon in hand, after having jumped from an airplane and marched 18 miles, and says with a smile, "This is good s***!"
A Navy SEAL lies in the mud, 55 LB pack on his back, weapon in hand, after swimming 10 miles to shore, crawling through a swamp and marching 25 miles at night past the enemy positions, says with a grin, "This really is great s***!"
A Force Recon Marine, up to his nose in the stinking, bug-infested mud of a swamp with a 65 LB pack on his back and a weapon in both hands after jumping from an aircraft at high altitude, into the ocean, swimming 12 miles to the shore, killing several alligators to enter the swamp, then crawling 30 miles through the brush to assault an enemy camp, says, "I love this s***! "
The Air Force NCO sits in an easy chair in an air conditioned, carpeted office and says, "My e-mail's out? What kind of s*** is this?"
yes "in the rear with the gear" do I need to say more :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Merge, are you losing it?
crazy fool. Stay outta the sun, Sgts orders
Lt_Col WIZ, VC, MiD (Ret)
Yeah WIZ, I'm just testing you to see if your mind is still sharp.
Oh man, that's not good, lol. It must be this heat; that, and the almost constant threat of death. Yeah, that's it.
I think this calls for a Newcastle, I'm off... :glasses:
Best idea I've heard all day.
That reminds me of a thread... Adze in Newcastle :smokin:.
That's because Brown Ale, which I believe Merge is referring to, is brewed where I live. That being Newcastle. :smokin:
Wrong actually Adze, but half right. That is the city of origin, true.
Lt_Col WIZ, VC, MiD (Ret)
Yeah, I've had a brown ale in Newcastle myself once, actually.
Yeah alright, clever dick. It's made in Gateshead.
Did you post that awhile back?
Did who post what?
B.) The joke.
I read it a few months back from here, and I'm pretty sure it was him.
Infact yes it was:
Lol I never noticed the link
Two breakdowns in one thead. That's quite good going!
Just to make a short summary of events here:
Now we know that Merge is cooling down with Newcastle beer, which is not produced in Newcastle, but under circumstances not enlightened in this topic, finds its way to the US West Coast. However, White Fang lives in Newcastle, Adze has visited the city and Python thinks the gals are nice there. The beer is actually produced in Gateshead, as hinted by our walking beer database Wiz. We do not know anything about Gateshead, not even if the gals are pretty, but we now share the knowledge that Leon has enjoyed Gateshead produced beer, not in Gateshead, but in Newcastle, where White Fang lives, but never have met Adze. All this while the afforementioned Merge tries to escape the fact that he might have had people laughing twice, over the same joke, a fact that Spidey quite right brings up, but obviously without reading the topic to see that Wiz already had pointed this out.
Amazing knowledge -- perfect for my holiday brain.
I need a vacation from my vacation lol.
