Terminal Lance #81 “Myths and Legends III”
November 16, 2010
According to Urban Dictionary, this is why the anonymous male figure fucking your wife and/or girlfriend is named “Jody”:
In the Marines, a “Jody” is a generalized term meaning: any man who stays home while everyone else goes to war. He gets to enjoy all the things the Marines are missing, more specifically the Marine’s girlfriend back at home while the Marine is away on active duty. The reason that they’re called Jody specifically dates back to black soldiers in WWII. They took a character from old blues songs named Joe the Grinder (or Joe D. Grinder) who would steal the ladies of inmates and soldiers, and clipped his name to Jody.
I personally have never actually heard the explanation for the knick-name. However, it is common knowledge: Jody is at home banging your wife right now. That’s right, Jody. There’s nothing you can do about Jody; he is your girlfriend’s friend at work–the funny one, he’s your soon-to-be-ex-best friend, he’s the guy at the bar that doesn’t care that she’s taken. Jody is all around you, and he is thus a proper Marine Corps Myth and Legend to behold.
In site news, I will be putting up a new set of prints for sale this week–so stand by for that and pay attention to the Facebook fan page for announcements. Additionally, this weekend saw the transfer of Terminal Lance to a new server, so there may or may not have been a few hiccups along the way. Notably, the forum was down for a couple of hours, but thanks to Andy Potanin over at Twin Cities Tech, we hopefully have a much more reliable server.
I wanted to include this photo sent to me by Michael Neidlinger. It is a photo of a Lance Corporal Ramos holding a double rainbow in the palms of his hands. All the way… all the way…
Keep it real gents.
