3. Didn't Tom Tomorrow do a cartoon on that subject?

I guess it's not exactly the same - i could have sworn i've heard 101st fighting keyboarders somewhere though - very funny poster at any rate.

5. From tunnel vision, to carpal tunnel, they suffered all
The mighty flameboys of fundy fury.

10. Brilliant!
The 101st will long be remembered for their fierce frontguard action protecting the porta-potties at the 1st pro-war rally in DC. It was their finest moment.

18. The Battle Hymn Of The 101st Fighting Keyboarders
Sung to the tune of the Marine Corps Hymn

'tween the walls of mommy's basement
On the floors our spunk has stained
We fight our fights through proxy
With a mouse, keyboard, and brain
First to call for wars of freedom
Policies that kill the poor
We'll do the least that we can do
And fight with our keyboard.

Our George was safe - he made the Guard
And Rush had a sore ass;
Deferments saved Dick's butt five times
But not the working class;
In the dorms of far-off college quads
A light year from the war
You will find us cursin' Democrats
One Hundred-One Keyboards.

There's beer for us and guns for them
And each one has a role;
We're many so glib, we'll flame a Lib,
As warfare takes its toll;
If the Army and the Navy
Are understaffed in war;
Go find another place to turn
We're the One Oh One Keyboards.

25. USMC Gen Smedley D. Butler would agree, War Is A Racket
In this case I believe he would allow for the Marine Corps Hymn to be used in parody, as the BFEE was an original target of his. He was a 2X Congressional Medal of Honor recipient who knew the score.

26. If I was Siamese twins I would give this 4 thumbs up
Sadly, I am neither cojoined nor a twin so I can offer only two.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Do yourself a favor and check it out!
