    Which?

    There's a Red-headed Woodpecker, a Red-bellied Woodpecker, and a Red-cockaded Woodpecker, but I've never heard of a Red-headed Cockaded Woodpecker.

    Men At Work did a cover of that famous Villiage People hit? What next; 'N Sync doing YMCA?

    1. during MOUT training never ask if a "card swipe" is "gay"
    Okay, I'm just an old Air Force vet.

    What the heck is "MOUT training," and what -- in this case -- does "card swipe" refer to?

    MOUT is military operations in urban terrain.

    Not recommended? Describing the drill instructor, within his earshot, as "F---ing Mitchell." "F---ing Drill Instructor Staff Sergeant Mitchell" should be okay, but plain "F---ing Mitchell" is considered excessively casual.

    Dear Brian,

    That's why they are so rare! Also, they are sooooooo tasty!

    Sorry, "Men at Work" also sing "In the Navy".
    Yes, Justin Timberlake sings "YMCA".


    When you have a suspect/insurgent/bad guy on the ground and you are searching them, you go between their butt cheeks with a knife hand in a "swiping" motion.

    Thus "credit card swipe".

    MOUT training is NOT gay!

    11. Never ever go up to the Gunney, SFC, or Chief and say you were told to ask for the Prick E-7 radio.

    Just sayin..... ;-)

    Hey Chuck,

    Serious question!

    Is teabagging "ok" in Army combatives?

    Hmm, I think I'm with Brian on this one. Never heard of Men at Work covering "In the Navy." Was it some kind of live show bootleg or something?

    Card swiping? Teabagging? Geez, can't the Army just speak English.

    The Air Force (at least when I was in) didn't use such obsucre terms. We just used regular names.

    ...Like Broken Arrow, Covered Wagon, Bent Spear, Brave Shield...

    Uh, never mind.

    Broken arrow?

    HEY! Keep that language to yourself!

    Your "arrow" would never get broken during ARMY combatives...

    NEVER do combatives with Rangers, they cheat...

    Default Jody's Q on teabagging

    How you doing, Snake? You got broadband access? I've got a song you need to hear.

    I don't have the rules for MACP competition handy, but in non-comp practice, I'd say if you teabag your partner, you better be really ready for some hurting.

    When I was in boot camp they had done away with needles and gone to pneumatic injector guns. We'd walk down an aisle two abreast, and at the end of the row were two saddists...er, I mean medics...who would jamb the gun against your arm and pull the trigger. If you flinched the high-pressure stream of liquid would change from a liquid needle to a liquid scalpel and leave a nasty wound.

    After about our third or fourth series of shots, one kid came up to me and asked if the story about the VD shots was true. "Do they really use a square needle in the left nut?"

    I looked at him seriously and said with a straight face, "No, of course not. Remember, they use the air guns now. They just have us drop our drawers and 'whoompa whompa' -- one on each side and it's all done."

    Before I could tell him I was kidding his face went pale, he took a few steps, and then fainted on the spot.
