Good Morning Gentle Readers,
236 years ago at Tun Tavern, on the waterfront in the City of Brotherly Love, Uncle Sam's Misguided Children came squalling into this world. If you're in a bar fight, these boys is who you want at your back. Or maybe the IDF. But it ain't their birthday.
Wonder if they'll be serving any of this at the Marine Corps Ball come Saturday:
My buddy Benito reviews it here.
For the guys out there that still think of wine as a girly drink, get over it. The Norwegian version of 'cheers!' is skål, which means 'skull'. This goes back to the practice of Vikings drinking wine* out of the hollowed-out skulls of their enemies.
Sidebar: If Harry Truman had his way, there would be no Marine Corps. After what they did on Iwo? Can you imagine so little respect?
