Soldiers and their humor: living at the edge of civilization requires a highly developed sense of irony. Dumb signs all over Iraq and Afghanistan are always good for a chuckle.
This sign just came to me from a friend in Ramadi, Iraq. Before the war ended, Ramadi was in chaos beyond easy description. Now, some service members who are in Ramadi complain to me that they are bored. Apparently some of them even forget their weapons. (My friend confirmed that the forgetful soldier got his rifle back.)
This story can also be found covered at Pajamas Media.

This commment is unpublished.· 13 years agoOne of the funniest signs I've ever seen was posted next to a slit trench dug by a SeaBee in the frontlines on the first night of the 1st Battle of Fallujah. It read: "This crap brought to you by your loving friends of the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines. Enjoy."
