Humor in uniform

Postby nikita » Mon Jun 26, 2006 9:15 pm

Hello,

I came across several really nice army jokes. Here is one of them for you. Have fun!

The Officer of the Day discovered a sentry engrossed in a book. "Don’t you know it's offence to read on guard duty?" he roared.
"Oh! I'm not reading, sir, this is a dictionary."
"A dictionary?"
"Yes, sir. You know how it gets kinda lonely here on post and you start to talk to yourself. Well, sometimes I come out with a word I don't understand and I like to look it up."


To be continued. :)

The last thing he'd do

Hello,

And here is a new one for you.

After a terrible explosion at an ammunition plant an investigation was initiated. "What cause that explosion?" asked the investigator.

"One of the men of this powder mill struck a match."

"Struck a match!" exclaimed the amazed investigator. "I'd think that would be the last thing on earth he'd do."

"It was, sir," said the eyewitness.


Have a nice day.

Infallible General

Postby nikita » Sat Jul 01, 2006 5:53 pm

Hello,

Here is another army joke for you.

A general who believed he was a great strategist startled his staff officers by admitting that once he had been wrong in his decision.

"You wrong, sir?" exclaimed on of his listeners.

"Yes," replied the infallible general. "Once I thought I was wrong when I wasn't."

Cheerio!

Army Recruiting Office

Postby nikita » Sun Jul 02, 2006 11:16 am

Hello,

Here are two stories about army recruiting offices.

Publicity

Recruiting posters in England promise:
"Join the Army. No Time Wasted on Going To Your Job Place and Back."


And even a better one.

Less Dangerous

A poster was displayed in a busy street in London: "Join Paratroops! It's Less Dangerous Jumping out of a Plane Than Crossing the Street Here."

Some time later the following words appeared on the house wall across the street. "I'd like to – but how could I cross the dangerous spot to get to the Recruiting Office?"


Nice retort. They say that a Brit would rather be called a bad lover than a person with bad sense of humour. :)

Take care!

Nikita
