Every Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps has heard of LCpl Schmuckatelli. He’s the same Lance Corporal that you’ve heard in every safety brief, every ass chewing and every straight talk. This is the Lance Corporal responsible for everything wrong in the Marine Corps, he’s the very reason every regulation exists–because Lance Corporal Schmuckatelli went out into town and fucked it up for everyone else.
For those of you outside of our little secret club here, Schmuckatelli is a generic name used by higher-ups to describe any hypothetical Lance Corporal that goes and makes an ass of himself. It doesn’t matter what he’s doing this or next weekend, but I can guarantee he’s doing something stupid. So remember, the next time your libo gets secured or you think it’s stupid that you need a battle buddy to go to the store–remember, you have Lance Corporal Schmuckatelli to thank.
There’s some big things coming up for Terminal Lance soon. Only one of which I will continue to harp about until it happens for now.
I’ve mentioned it a few times now, but I want to make sure it’s clear that I will be at WonderCon in San Francisco, CA from April 1st to the 3rd. I’ll be there handing out some stuff and signing whatever items (or whatever…) you put in front of me. I’ll be there with the Concord Vet Center, so look for their booth and you’ll be sure to find me.
There’s a couple other big things that I could mention, but alas, I will keep them to myself for now.
I haven’t decided if I’ll put up a comic next week. It’s Spring Break, and I could use a break. I suppose you’ll find out next week. Stay frosty, motivators.
