My father is an ex-Marine who served in the Vietnam War. He tells me many
stories about pranks and stuff he pulled, and here is one that stood out.
He was on patrol, in the pitch black night, with orders NOT TO FIRE unless
an enemy was spotted. In the pitch black night. Well he wasn't about to
wait until the VK was in his face with a combat knife before he started
shooting, so he looked around for a reason to open fire. And they found
In the distance, they heard a Vietnamise bird, nicknamed the 'fuck you'
bird because of its 'unique cry.'
They got on the radio.
"This is 'Bubbles' (his nickname, another story), we have spotted a gook,
sir, request permission to open fire."
"Roger, open fire."
They then began shooting wherever the bird was heard. Of course, they
couldn't just stop there...
"This is bubbles, Requesting airstrike..."
Yup. He called in Willie Peter, Napalm, Airstrikes, 'Puff the Magic
Dragon' (a large plane with a lot of machine guns that could level an area
the size of a football field in a matter of seconds.) as well as laying
thier own steel.
In the morning, the bird was still there. But 30 VK's were confirmed dead.
Needless to say, my father was put in for a commendation. But because he
wasn't a brownnoser, he didnt get it.

Long ago in Israel the wisest man, a great philopher and thinker, was
holding audience. Everyone was there - the hall was packed out -
politicians at the front, professionals, doctors, lawyers next, then
businessmen, etc., with lesser beings further and further away.
He intones his most famous and deepest saying: "Life is like a fish".
Everyone murmers in obedient and respectful agreement "How wise", "What a
thinker", "How true", "What a man".
At the very back of hall, a callow, spotty youth - a freshman probably,
sticks his hand up and asks "Why?". Absolute horror around the hall...
They stare round enraged at him "How can he question the great man?", "Has
he no sense at all?". They stare back anxiously at the great man - what
will he do? He doesn't react, just sits there, pondering. The atmosphere
is electric. After ten minutes of deep thought, the great man looks up,
the audience expectant with bated breathe. He speaks. "Alright, so it's
not like a fish".
Some years back my live-in girlfriend (and now wife) came
home while I was napping on the living room couch. I was still
half asleep when she leaned over me to try and get a kiss. I
wanted to say "don't get your hopes up" but then thought
maybe "don't jump the gun" would be better. In my half-awake
state it came out "Don't get your guns up."
