Anchors Away, lingerie!

November 15, 2008

Congratulate me, Blog Guy!

Why?

I enlisted in the Navy!

Awesome. Which one?

There’s more than one?

Sure. There’s the regular U.S. Navy, and then there’s the Victoria’s Secret Navy.They’re both recruiting now.

And the difference? I’m afraid to ask.

Well, you know about the regular navy. Ships, planes, attacks, torpedoes, surface-to-air missiles…  But in the OTHER navy, you mostly ride around on yachts filled with Victoria’s Secret lingerie supermodels, taking them to different places in the Caribbean, opening champagne, slathering tanning oil on them, stuff like that.

Jeez Louise! Is it too late for me to…

Yep.

Earn a high school diploma. Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Wait — which navy has surface-to-air missiles?

That would be the Victoria’s Secret Navy, John, at least according to Wikipedia.

US Navy ships have surface to air missiles. Google AEGIS.

Note the pulpit holder the 25th on the left. Holding tight as you would expect in such frantic situation of bravado.
