severed goat testicle stew

Don't be making jokes along these lines with the local tribesmen under any circumstances, and most definitely not in the appropriate combination of clacks and grunts and spits. You just might be accidentally understood and some poor beast somewhere will have to surrender its manlihood for the pretense of salvaging international relations, or some such shit.

You have a truly awesome arsenal of insult and invective AST. I am full of admiration. You could make a good living ex-forces by charging big bucks as a splenetic freelance insult consultant. There's a big demand. I might even hire you myself for a paragraph or two for UK consumption.

Love it. As usual. Who cares about rowters! Just take care.

I wouldn’t mind getting close enough to jab a few sharp objects in the real deal. Oops! That might be illegal to say also?

I was speechless there for a moment...I may not agree with everything you have to say, but then, I don't know what the hell to think about anything half the time anyway. Maybe my delight in your words is just the infantry wife side of me coming out-the side that is used to nasty language and vulgar thoughts and screwed up soldiers, because in all reality, it's what I'm surrounded by.

Son of a bitch! "STAYING in Iraq now is the modern equivalent of keeping wartime Washington in the hands of Nazis you dumb twittering goose stepping greyhaired Himmleroid. Arrogant contemptuous fuck."

That is one hellacious smack down! Beautiful!

Great post, too....

Lately I've been moved to purchase a number of potatoes myself.

Desperate measures for desperate times.

Tell me which two of the potatoes has developed a massive leak?

We need another post, Short-Timer! Come on you lazybones. Stop patrolling IED infested streets and working on hummers and post.

Nice fuckin rant you got going there.
Not too bad at all.

Do you still do archaeology?
I do.
Are you working at it, or will you be?

Hey Short-Timer,

I just read Colby Buzzell's book "My War" and he's got nothing on you in the writing, bitching and moaning department. You are much better.

Keep it up and get a book deal. Maybe on the way home you can sit in first class with the generals like Colby.

Having been over a month, I'm just weighing in as officially worried and hoping you are okay.

Also, I miss your use of expletives.

(((crickets chirping)))

I KNOW you are there. If you're done with the blog just let us know. If you're at a loss for words (which I highly doubt) why not start by answering this question: What else is there to do in Seattle?

Can you just post "I'm okay"?

Worried for you brother.

The coach and two players of the Iraqi national tennis team just got executed Godfather style for wearing short trunks. I´m saying, reinstate that motherfucking Saddamswine, it´s the closest they´ll ever get to a democracy. Loved the piece, btw.

Well, I just wanted to say I love the post. I hope all is well with you from one "short-timing" stoplossed soldier stuck in Iraq to another.
