How was your Monday training Shipmate?


Not nearly as entertaining as our Swedish counterpart,
it seems.
"Two Swedish non-commissioned officers have been docked pay for painting a flying penis on a white flag adorning their boat during a naval exercise in the Stockholm archipelago"
What was the uniform of the day?
... the NCOs' skimpy attire of blazer and boxer shorts was to be considered a breach of security and found that they "had not adapted their clothing to existing water and temperature conditions".
There is always a price to be paid.
The (NCOs) have now been docked three days pay apiece for behaviour considered to be "unsafe, inappropriate and immature", by the Armed Forces Disciplinary Board (Försvarsmaktens personalansvarsnämnd).
I feel sorry for the guys - they were just trying to get in the spirit of - I am not making this up - Sweden's 'Chlamydia Monday.'

My kingdom for a picture .... Stockholm spy, can you help a Salamander out?

Epidemiologically speaking, I think it's more what did your old girlfriend give you to pass along to the new one(s).

Having two ladies of your aquaintance meet at a certain specialist's offices really has no potential up side for you. 'Cept maybe up side your head. My Mother was very clear about that, in that little talk we had just before I went out in the wide world to seek my fortune.

What I can't figure is what does the blue blazer, white boxers fashion statement have to do with it?

Must be a Scandinavian thing.

Good Lord.  In our Navy you'd get 60/60 and an OTH for having that much fun.

This reminds me of an inadvertently hilarious children's video that my friend forwarded to me a while ago:

We've got the clap

I once spent most of a week sailing around the Strait of Juan de Fuca flying the International Signal stating "My Penis is Swollen"  What a fascinating signal book.  8 other ships and the MINEGRU 1 staff in the exercise and nobody commented on it.

Yeah, the hilarity there isn't quite unintentional.  They're a parody of the Wiggles.  Check out some of their other songs, like 'Mother Swallows at Night.'

Did anyone offer to buy you dinner that night? :)

It was before we homonized the Navy, I bet...no wonder no one offered, or they sure weren't going to tell if they did! LOL

It most likely was before we hormonized the Navy...and if any one did offer him dinner, they sure weren't going to tell! LOL

Being a Badger of Nowegian descent, the Swedes behaving in an amoral fashion comes as no surprise. How like Them.
