2-man working party removes Chaplain's body after DADT expiration.

Norfolk, VA.  A U.S. Navy Southern Baptist Chaplain died today after two crew members asked him to perform a same-sex wedding. Witnesses said the 35 year old Chaplain turned bright red, shortly before his head exploded.  The local Navy Legal Service Office detailed three JAG officers to pay claims for damage to cars in the first 5 rows of the parking lot.

By the way, did you notice that in the latest commercial the voice doesn't say "Until the world is safe for democracy?"  Since when do we give a damn about peace?  I thought it was all about freedom and liberty........

"The last of the bodies of the crew of LCS-1 are recovered.  USS Freedom is the only warship in the history of the US Navy to be lost to small arms fire.  A US Navy spokesperson said that the Captain and crew made a grievous error in judgment in believing that their Littoral Combat Ship was intended for combat in the littorals."

I wanted to meet interesting and stimulating leaves from an ancient tree... and rake them.

Seaman Joker, why did you join my beloved Navy?
Sir, to rake, sir!
So you're a gardener?
Sir, yes sir!
Then let me see your pruning face!
Sir?
You got a pruning face! AAAAAAAAHH! That's a pruning face, let me see your pruning face!

We did something like this in Thailand, true story.  It was basically gardening at an old folks home.  We started to weed the pond or whatever it was, as just before we got to it, I realized that Thailand has cobras, or thought they did.  We beat the living bejeebers out of those weeds with LONG  sticks before we bent down to start pulling them up.  I don't know if the threat was real or not, but I did NOT want to go see HM1 hoping he had cobra anti-venom.  I was QUITE certain the 800 mg of Vitamin M was not going to fix that!

Gobsmacked I be!

So happens I am wiling some time away in a place with a view of boats, an occasional VH-60 and VH-3, and some towering cu's turning into big gray uglies...

Which is meaning yet more time to wile away.

So.

116305-N-FU911-101 ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (June 14, 2012) Yeoman 3rd Class Edward Welsh, left, and Culinary Specialist Seaman Cheryl Burger recover the body of John Paul Jones for future meritious service in the United States Navy green energy program. In compliance with the navy standards of excellence in execution of safety, environmental, and health guidelines the LCS and DDX program, as well as number of diversity, gender, and other transformational programs are disbanded during the transport of Captain Jones in order to prevent him from prematurely spinning in his bag.

Completely OT, but since the boss is away, some of you folks like this 1971 Navy Film about NATC Pax River. 

The bomb separation part is pretty entertaining.

"In order to help the Navy meet the new PFT standards and the mandated diversity quotas, it is now authorized to assist overweight shipmates during the PFT by carrying them in a bag. This is only authorized if the overweight shipmate is sufficiently diverse."

The US Navy's morale was recovered today, having been missing for the past several years.  A government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, stated that it appeared to have been taken into these bushes, where it was brutally beaten, sodomized and strangled.  Still missing is the Navy's fighting spirit, which was last seen in company with its morale.  "This is a sad day for us all," said ADM Mike Mullen, "but for some of us, at least there's a little closure."  When asked about hope for finding the Navy's fighting spirit again, Mullen declined to comment.

I guess that's what happens when you venture into DC without your Liberty buddy....
Fighting Spirit should have been ashamed to leave Morale to go off with the Parliament of Whores.

Oh for pity's sake, Guest.  You miss the point once again.  And I'm going to delete my comment just because you're an ass.

(And no, I don't protest too much.  You know NOTHING about me.)  You are obtuse.

DeltaBravo said...

Except this cleanup crew is not diverse enough.   Too many white faces.  Adm. Mullen, call your office.  Don't let them discriminate like this.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Mullen knows he would catch holy hell if he had pictures of "diverse" sailors performing menial tasks.  Then he would have to kowtow even more to the activists. 

Mullen must have back problems from all the bowing and scraping he does.

DM05 said...

An intrepid shore party is launched, led by P02 Chubbly, to retrieve leaves and tinder. Prior to the 2012 election, the Navy was forced to return to non-green coal/leaf burning for steaming and traversing from one shoreside diversity festival to the next. Pictured here is enough fuel for 4 hours worth of dwell time in the littorals, or 2 diversity fetishivals. NAMs were awarded to all participants.

DamnJAG said...

Fiscal restraint was found dead today.  Here, U.S. Coast Guard members remove the body from a nearby park.

AW1 Tim said...

I'm surprised that Mullen can actually stand after he underwent surgery to remove his spine. You'd think that the pain meds alone would keep him from appearing in public.

"After successfully going to sea on a wartime footing, the Navy unloaded the Marines in record time. Seen here are two sailors, SA F[redacted]Y and some other POG carrying the daily ration of coffee beans for the nearby USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) [not shown], the crew having run out of useful things to do (other than drinking coffee) until some misguided children get bored of killing people and breaking things."

But it's what it is all about.

I never was one for much levity.  Bitter and cynical is more my style.  But, thank you, I'll be here all week.
