Terminal Lance #78 “Bad Ideas are Always the Funniest”
November 1, 2010
This strip is about Halloween… not Butter Bars…
Okay, well, it’s not my fault that 2nd Lieutenants are such easy targets. I don’t mean to resort to such simple poo-flinging humor, but I wanted a reason to do a Halloween strip–as well as show someone dress up like a giant boot.
Anyway, I hope all of you had a good Halloween this weekend. I celebrated last weekend, actually, and dedicated last night to being on trick-or-treater duty. Though I had a wealth of candy and sweets awaiting their migration into the bags and ultimate digestive tracts of ghoulish children–I was more surprised than disappointed to say that we didn’t get a single trick or treater on this spooky night. I guess kids just don’t have fun like they used to. I recall my younger days of Halloween quite fondly, dressing up as some grotesque creature and going door to door in search of sugary delights.
Of my 4 Halloweens in the Marine Corps, two were spent in relative freedom. The other two, the first being in Camp Pendleton while I was at SOI. The 2nd being on my first Iraq deployment. Neither of the latter were anything memorable, just another day at work if anything.
Anyway, I don’t have a whole lot to say about the strip. The continuing conflict of enlisted versus officer will always exist. I don’t really pride myself on taking sides, but humor is humor.
