So one of my buddies from way back sent me these. We recently got back in touch via Facebook. I used to think Facebook was evil but in this case it worked out famously...
Now he's been reading all the useless drivel that I've written over the past year or so and commenting, then he sent me some military terms. Remember those, remember me giving you all those military terms and my definitions...
He gave me a few more and I thought I would share them with you.
Steves- what we called Afghans after a direct order not to call them "hajjis"
The recoil of your rifle- what you feel after you shoot a Steve.
Oompa-Loompas- are the little brownish/orange people that make the FOB (a.k.a. chocolate factory) run. take out the trash. wash the chow hall, unload conex's, carry rocks from one side of the supply yard to the other and back again... etc.
Staff Infection- Thursday meetings with the commander
Man-Love Thursday- the day before the sabbath when all the dudes walk around holding hands, then go fuck each other because in that bass ackwards culture men are for pleasure and women are for babies... and ritualistic mutilation.
Condoms- when they are thrown from the turret of the HMMWV... are treated like bubble gum... which is hilarious.
Sheep - Afghan for religiously tolerated vagina. *I did tell my gunner to shoot near, but not shoot, an individual participating in what westerners (who don't live in West Virginia or Montana) would consider inappropriate acts with a ruminant...*
CAS - close air support... which is always fucking busy somewhere else when you really... REALLY... need it.
Hajji Night Vision - a full moon
Google Maps- works better than blue force tracker
Bazaar-o's - Hajjis that hock cheap (usually stolen and very poor quality) items at the on-post market on Sundays.
Training manuals/videos - Pornography
KBR- Keeps Bringing Retards (kellogg brown and root)
The Big Four - as in "you got your big 4?" Goldbond... Listerine... Baby Wipes... and Socks.
Attached to SF - means you're bait... bring more ammo and smoke... put the extra components, including the dick flap, on your IBA...
PRT- Provides Resources to the Taliban. (PRT, formerly the provincial reconstruction team)
