Military Advance...

Larry E. passes along this bit of jarhead humor:

The implant is specifically designed to be injected in the forehead.

When properly installed, it will instantly allow the terrorist to speak to God.

It comes in various sizes: Generally from .223 to .50 cal.

The exact size of the implant will be selected by a well-trained and highly skilled technician, who will also make the injection.

No Anesthetic is required.

The implant is likely to be painless.  Side effects, like headaches, nausea, aches or pains are extremely temporary.

Some bleeding or swelling may occur at the injection site.  In most cases, you won't even notice it.

Please enjoy the security we provide for you.

Best regards,

I got to wondering where the term “jarhead” orginated.  There seems to be quite a bit of uncertainty about this.  I found these origins in different places:
  • Former U.S. Marine headwear (hats) looked a bit like jars.
  • The same company that manufactured Mason jars used to manufacture U.S. Marine headwear.
  • The stiff leather encircling the neck, which used to be part of the U.S. Marine uniform (and is the source of the term “leatherneck” made the Marines hold their heads stiffly erect, like jars.
  • The standard U.S. Marine “buzzcut” haircut makes the Marines' heads look like jars.
  • It's a metaphor for the U.S. Marines' heads: hard on the outside, empty on the inside.
