News, but not the serious kind
Catching bayonets, what could go wrong?
It’s not that I don’t think you know what you’re doing, but we hired you to spiff up our military honor guard with some great new moves, and I’m just not sure about your plan.
Okay, I’m sorry, what was your name again?
Okay Lamar, so as I understand it, the honor guard marches up, stops, and everybody just hurls their rifles straight into the air, is that it?
That’s it. It’s going to be impressive as hell.
You’re sure these guns won’t rotate or anything?
They shouldn’t. They’ll all have bayonets on them, so I think that should help stabilize them.
Okay, Lamar. But worst-casing it, if it gets confusing, how will each soldier know which one is his when they come back down?
That’s easy. Every rifle will have a yellow ribbon on it. Brilliant, huh?
