Terminal Lance “Shamrock Sloshed III”

March 16, 2018

In all seriousness, Abe might have a real problem and should probably get help. Celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day is especially easy for Marines, because we drink profusely and already wear green every fucking day. If you didn’t know any better, you would think every day is Saint Patrick’s Day in the Marine Corps with Marines running around in “green on green” PT gear and reeking of the last night’s binge.

Of course, it would be remiss of me not to provide you with some good influence as well. I urge you all to drink safely in your barracks rooms and hide when the OOD comes by. Don’t piss off the side of the catwalk when the Staff Duty comes around and make sure to drink enough alcohol to be hydrated the next day.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, Marines.

Terminal Lance “Shamrock Sloshed II”

March 17, 2017

I’m going to assume that by the time this comic goes up, most of you will already be drunk*. That’s okay, because today is Saint Patrick’s Day, and it is an international day of alcohol consumption unlike the world has ever known.

*But really, it’s a serious problem and you should get help.

Being a hispanic Jew, I don’t have a lot of valuable insight on Irish holidays, but alcohol and the Marine Corps go together like peas and carrots. That is, peas and carrots that were vomited up due to indulgent binge drinking the night before. Of course, as often pointed out, the Marine Corps was founded in a tavern (Tun Tavern oorah Semper Fi devil dogs), and naturally, Marines love to drink.

As an aside, it’s always interesting for me to do these comics about binge drinking when I know full-well the consequences and issues surrounding the problems that veterans and active service members have with alcohol. Alcohol is actually a serious vice in both the active duty military and veteran community, abused in all of its forms as a coping mechanism for trauma and depression (coincidentally leading to more trauma and depression).

It’s not like we don’t all know this–and I’m certainly not about to tell you not to enjoy your Guinness tonight.

Though, I’m more of a Moscow Mule guy, myself.

Still, drink responsibly and send me awesome videos from the barracks.
