So what's the most memorable thread around here? I'm guessing it's going to come from the 2004 era.

@plbe: I seem to have a higher post count than you. So that's like having a higher PFT or cutting score. So get your happy ass at parade rest. I'll be by to inspect your room at 0500 tomorrow morning.

EDIT: Don't make me tell Gunnery Sergeant (of Marines) Bunny (EDIT: a Marine) that you're being belligerent.

:lol:

EDIT: Article 1337 of UCMJ makes this perfectly enforceable.
