The Guys Get Shirts! 
This was emailed to me by an old Marine buddy. Provenance uncertain:

To: All Commands
Subject: Inappropriate T-Shirts
Ref: ComMidEastFor Inst 16134//24 K

1. The following T-shirts are no longer to be worn on or off base by
any military or civilian personnel serving in the Middle East:

"Eat Pork Or Die" [both English and Arabic versions]

"Shrine Busters" [Various. Show burning minarets or bomb/artillery shells impacting Islamic shrines. Some with unit logos.]

"Napalm Sticks Like Crazy" [Both English and Arabic versions]

"Goat - it isn't just for breakfast any more." [Both English and Arabic versions]

"The road to Paradise begins with me." [Mostly Arabic versions but some in English. Some show sniper scope cross-hairs]

"Guns don't kill people. I kill people." [Both Arabic and English versions]

"Pork. The other white meat." [Arabic version]

"Infidel" [English, Arabic and other coalition force languages.]

2. The above T-shirts are to be removed from Post Exchanges upon receipt of this directive.

3. The following signs are to be removed upon receipt of this message:
"Islamic Religious Services Will Be Held at the Firing Range At 0800 Daily."

"Do we really need 'smart bombs' to drop on these dumb bastards?"

4. All commands are instructed to implement sensitivity training upon receipt.

The commander was right to ban these shirts. But I'll bet he got someone to buy one of each for him before he did!

Splash, out


I don't get why the goat one is out.
I have seen the "Infidel" one being sold at some site with other "Right Wing" tshirts.

But Jeebus, some of those are funny. "Eat Pork or Die". Heh.
Clearly a hoax e-mail, although it could be based on something that actually was put out. First, the goat thing. Second, the muslim services sign - nobody above the rank of 1LT would allow that one to stay.
