Hit Man Camp? Pass the lime bag, slimebag!

March 17, 2011


Blog Guy, what are some things to watch for if you suspect you’ve chosen the wrong summer camp?

Good question. This would be one example. The photo caption here says these things are latrines at a “drug hit men training camp.”

You’re not paying attention.

I’m saying if your camp’s restroom consists of a log-covered pit and a communal lime bag, and you’re hurrying off to handicrafts like Make Your Own Silencer, you may not be a happy camper.

The best achievers would then be allowed some privacy to take a bath… they’d simply remove the logs and voila…your bath is ready. Minus the water of course.

They get to lime their open-pit latrines? Man, I am so jealous!
