There’s so much confusion regarding MP, and subsequent guessing and misinterpretations of what we think is happening in relation to what others post.
So here’s a little humor about miscommunication: Those who currently or previously served in the armed forces may enjoy this.
A Colonel issued the following directive to his Executive Officer:
“As instructed by the General, tomorrow evening at approximately 2,000 hours, Halley’s Comet will be visible in this area, an event which occurs once every 75 years. Have the troops fall out in the battalion area in fatigues, and explain this rare phenomenon to them. In case of rain, we will not be able to see anything, so assemble the troops in the theater, and show them films of this.”
Executive Officer to Company Commander:
“By order of the Colonel, tomorrow at 2,000 hours, Halley’s Comet will appear above the battalion area. If it rains, fall the troops out in fatigues, then march to the theater where this rare phenomenon will take place, something which occurs only once every 75 years.”
Company Commander to Lieutenant:
“By order of the Colonel in fatigues at 2,000 hours tomorrow evening, the phenomenal Halley’s Comet will appear in the theater. In case of rain in the battalion area, the Colonel will give another order, something that occurs every 75 years.”
Lieutenant to Sergeant:
“Tomorrow at 2,000 hours, the Colonel will appear in the theater with Halley’s Comet, something that happens every 75 years.”
Sergeant to Squad:
“When it rains tomorrow at 2,000 hours, the phenomenal 75 year old General Halley, accompanied by the Colonel, will drive his comet though the battalion area in fatigues.”
Just for humor!
God Bless our troops!! We’re behind you all the way!!
