231 Candles?!

What to do, what to do, what to do.

What in the world do you get the Marines for their birthday?

I’ve been thinking about this all week. *tap tap tap* (That’s my fingers tapping on my desk.)

And then! Holy crap! It happened! An epiphany by way of my mail box! I got this magazine and in it I saw the PERFECT gift!

I mean, the Marines… they’re the guys out front. The Knights in Shining Armor if you will. Right? Everyone always says, “Call in the Marines!” or at least they do in the movies, so I figured it’s a good analogy.

Marines of today, the Knights of Yesteryear?

Yes? No. Go with me here, folks, because this is a GREAT gift.

I found this:

That’s right, a Gothic Commode. Read the print. It says it even has real chainmail in the clear Lucite seat! Their own thrown! Kings of their castle.

I’m so daggum proud of myself! Heh heh heh…

On a serious note... To my Marine Corps blog buddies, The Straight White Guy, That1Guy, Ogre, The Confabulator, I say:

Happy Birthday and THANK YOU for your service to our country.

And to the rest of you… the best gift actually would be a donation to Valour-IT to the Marine Team. Navy hit their goal (Yahhoo and THANK YOU to everyone who donated!) so lets help the Marines.

If you’ve not donated, but have been thinking about it, a donation to Valour-IT is money much better spent than the chainmail commode seat, although I think that Gothic Toilet Seat is pretty damn funny.

Just hit the donate button below and help a wounded Veteran.

Go Marines!

And... Happy 231st Birthday!

I don't know what an appropriate gift would be, but if they're looking for volunteers to administer the birthday 'spankins', let me know, would ya?

"Go Marines"

Very appropriate choice of words, considering the gift you've chosen :-)
