The U.S Military has stopped dropping bombs
, and started dropping Chuck Norris
, because he's cheaper and he does more damage
An Air Force cargo plane
was preparing for departure from Thule Air Base in Greenland
. They were waiting for the truck to arrive to pump out the aircraft's sewage holding tank. The Aircraft Commander was in a hurry, the truck was late in arriving, and the Airman performing the job was extremely slow in getting the tank pumped out.
When the commander berated the Airman for his slowness and promised punishment, the Airman responded: "Sir, I have no stripes, it is 20 below zero, I'm stationed in Greenland, and I am pumping sewage out of airplanes. Just what are you going to do to punish me?"
Having just moved into his new office, a pompous, new colonel
was sitting at his desk when an airman
knocked on the door. Conscious of his new position, the colonel quickly picked up the phone
, told the airman to enter, then said into the phone,
, I'll be seeing him this afternoon and I'll pass along your message. In the meantime, thank you for your good wishes, sir."
Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the young enlisted man, he asked, "What do you want?"
"Nothing important, sir," the airman replied, "I'm just here to hook up your telephone."
At one Army
base, the annual trip to the rifle range had been canceled for the second year in a row, but the semi-annual physical fitness
test was still on as planned. One soldier
mused, "Does it bother anyone else that the Army doesn't seem to care how well we can shoot
, but they are extremely interested in how fast we can run?"
