It's a little old, but I just came across it. It's a 2003 AP photo, and I've posted the caption as I found it. According to stories on the net, the AP eventually did finally get a clue and removed the photo from circulation.



US Army soldiers take rest during patrol in Baghdad suburb, Monday Nov. 17, 2003. U.S. forces have reacted to the increasing attacks in which dozens of Americans and their allies have died by mounting a massive show of force in central and northern Iraq. (AP Photo/Hadi Mizban)

And now you're reposting it? I don't get it.

If you don't get it, I might suggest closely examining the picture.

No, that I did get. But given the pictures content I thought along more serious lines. Should have remembered the forum title :-)

A few years back we hung some pants from the flag pole in our old (TA) unit. They were up there for about 3 days! - never got caught! Apparently the 2IC when absolutely mental when he discovered them.

Also, during a regimental parade, in basic training, one of our corporals was asked about the "rag order of his kit". He came smartly up to attention, and replied to the adjutant: "I'm sorry Sir, but you've got me mixed up with someone that give a ****" - he (and us) got 3 months of guard duty - funny though!

I would wear shorts, if I were one of those guys.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
