Must Read!!

You all must read this essay! It's written by a private in the Army as punishment for not bringing his poncho to a meal. That's right...he had to write a 1000 word essay about why he'll never forget to bring his poncho to the mess hall again. It is truly one of the funniest things I've ever read. This guy is hilarious. Here's a little excerpt for a teaser, but you've got to read the whole thing to truly appreciate the mundane task this guy accomplished with such pizzaz. :) {To give credit where credit is due, I got this story from Football Fans for Truth.}

"It is Extremely Important that I Bring my Equipment Every Day Because if I Don't the Drill Sergeant makes me write a stupid R.B.I., which I must write, because if I don't the Army will kick me out, instantly ruining my life because I will be unable to get a job, and I will wind up living in a cardboard box because sometimes society can be a cruel, cruel entity.

Therefore, I will always from now on bring my poncho to chow because as everyone knows, it often rains inside of the mess hall. I also do not like to live in a cardboard box."

It just get's better from there. You'll laugh out loud, I promise. And if you don't, you're just boring and probably don't appreciate my site anyway. Have fun kids!

Holy crap. I really want to know what his DI's reaction to this was...I wonder if it was his DI who scanned this!

I wondered the same thing myself. Did he just get flogged for this or did they have as good a laugh as we did. Hope you all liked it. I nearly fell off my chair laughing.
