Special, I Can’t Sleep Post!

The worst part about quitting smoking?

That you can’t have a smoke.

Important Update and Bumped!

Importanter update! I don’t know how to bump it!


Since we were wondering, I did something weird, I asked a smart military blog (no, another smart military blog you should all be reading) about it and got a response.


I kept seeing this picture all over the place and it made me think of something but I couldn’t figure out what

Then I figured it out.

They’re dressing their props just like the Iranian Salute guy!

It’s what tinpot dictators always do.

Update: I fixed some spelling, changed the picture to avoid confusion and changed poor wording, surpisingly!

    Sorry Vee, but you’re wrong on that one. The President doesn’t actually get to dress soldiers up. What you’ve got there is the Mess Blue Army Uniform (on a male Captain on the left) and that’s actually part of that uniform. If you want to slam AR 670-1, that’s cool, but blame those actually responsible. And frequently that’s the Sergeant Major of the Army and the Army Chief of Staff.

      Is that guy a soldier?

      Do real soldiers attend FLOTUS on TV needing a shave?:

      I’m not arguing with you on that, I actually went “D’Oh” when you said that.
      But I still don’t think a soldier would go on TV needing a shave like that.

  2. Yeah, aside the obvious props, the first thing I noticed was the guy needing a shave.

    The second thing I noticed was the boob belt. That woman just can’t go without it.

    Is that Army mess dress or USMC? I didn’t. Think the Army had the high collars like that.

      Nope, you’re right. USMC. I didn’t embiggen. As for the beard, what can I say? Dude’s got a dark beard. I knew a Marine at Monterrey who would shave right before morning formation and still get gigged on inspection for “needing to shave”. He went to his Gunny about it and was told, “I dunno, you might need to wear make up”. Which he wasn’t going to do, and was against regs anyhow. So…
