'Quiz' sheds light on Armed Forces mentality

TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Thursday, May 6, 2004


According to a trusted, anonymous source, the following questionnaire was culled from a top-secret U.S. Armed Forces enlistment test. These questions, appearing in public for the first time, will shed some much-needed light on the inner workings of our increasingly controversial men and women in uniform.

1. I joined the Armed Forces because:

a) It's the closest I'll ever get to a Humvee without clutching a soapy sponge.
b) I'm angry about 9/11 and I'm not too particular about who pays for it.
c) I needed the money for college.
d) It was either that or five years in the pokey.

Read the rest for a good laugh.

2. The Trib is a very right wing paper
I enjoy checking out Mike Seate's column though. He's usually pretty funny. :-)
