GUEST,Urbane Guerrilla Military Jodies? (142* d) RE: Military Jodies? 12 Oct 06

What? No mention of R. Lee Ermey shaking up the barracks, right shoulder arms, in Full Metal Jacket with a 6/8 rendering of

"This is my rifle, this is my gun (w/repeat)
One is for killing and one is for fun (w/repeat)"

with suitable gestures? Jeez!

I have no idea WHAT kind of unit would use this one -- a whole company of chaplains' assistants maybe:

"Ky-ri-e e-le-i-son/Ky-ri-e e-le-i-son
Chri-is-te e-le-i-son/Chr-is-te e-le-i-son
Sing the first word/Kyrie
Now the next one/'Leison
Now sing the other thing/Christe! 'Leison!"

(It's amazing just how easy it is to find former servicemen in a church choir by starting to sing this cadence.)

And some DI somewhere will eventually afflict a company with a 6/8 (not too far off the original beat):

"Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? (w/repeat)
Absorbent and porous and yellow is he (w/repeat)
If nautical foolishness be what you wish (w/repeat)
Get down on the deck and then flop like a fish! (w/repeat)
Sponge bob Square pants Spongebob/SQUAREPANTS!"
