when yer troops ain’t all that familiar with real wimmin

A group of Boko Haram terrorists tried to flee a Nigerian army checkpoint by dressing as women, only to be given away by their bushy beards. [story]

What was your first clue?
And, O..M..G.. that scarf with those shoes?

Hey, everyone said I took after my mom.
Mebbe a nice, wide belt would’a helped.

Reckon these fellers need a little R&R in the more, uh, hospitable part’a town to, you know, acclimate.

But, hey … could’a been worse.

    In Afghanistan, we used to call ‘em the Burqa Boyz.

    Did I ever mention the time that I single handedly held off a thousand Taliban with only my service 9mm pistol and a ball point pen?

    Oh, wait. I misspoke.

    ^ err…. a “man sammich?” Yikes! (No matter which entendre you pick for your primary meaning.)

    Also… I wouldn’t have thought that non-combatant muslims would fall within the dietary restrictions of Islam: any chance some Imminent Imam could be persuaded to declare those folks infidels and fatwa killing them?

    Cannibalism is the quickest way to find out who’s the junior man in the group.

    Me, I would have started with the Supply Officer, as it was his failure that lead to the hunger problem. Sort of an encouragement for his successor.

    ok —
    matching shoooooz and outfit = success
    matching shoooooz and car = tryin’ too hard

    Cross-dressing! Will they find some tall buildings to toss themselves from for that too? Pretty please?

    Don’t worry about feeding the troops, the commissariat job.
    After all, Allah will provide;
    but, evidently, sometimes you are what Allah provides.
