The SEAL Who Shot Bin Laden

Friday, May 20th, 2011

The Navy Seal Who Killed Osama Bin Laden from Rob Riggle

For the SEAL who shot Bin Laden, discretion and secrecy is of the utmost importance, but those are values one is quick to forget when surrounded by copious amounts of alcohol and awe-struck admirers. I’m most impressed how he still manages to ham up something as completely huge as taking out UBL. ‘Lt. John McClellan – Real American Hero’ indeed.

Diane McInerney Of Inside Edition Trains Like A Navy SEAL

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Diane McInerney of Inside Edition recently spent a day training with instruction from former SEALs Don Shipley and Lalo Roberti at the Extreme SEAL Experience outside Norfolk, VA. During the simulation, Diane wore around 60 pounds of equipment in addition to going through tactical training similar to that which SEAL Team Six went through before the raid on UBL’s compound. The exercise included how to infiltrate a building using a rope ladder, climb the side of a building, and crash through a window, with REAL glass, boots first. Quite the impressive feat (no pun intended).

Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

I think that a day at the range is the perfect Mother’s Day present, but not everyone would agree. Don’t forget to thank your mother for all that she’s done for you!

Infidel Caps Latest Shirt

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Infidel Caps has just made their newest shirt available for pre-sale. The “Bin Laden” shows the perfect cocktail mix for the recently-deceased terrorist mastermind on the back, while the term Infidel rides on the front, a view our enemies have of us which has easily become a term of endearment. The shirts are available in both black and grey, and come in sizes ranging from small to 2XL. Plus, Bin Laden’s head is a martini olive with an AK for a toothpick. How can you not like that?

You can order this shirt, and other fine infidel products, at http://infidelcaps.webs.com/apps/webstore/

OBL’S Send Off Song

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Just Plain Breakfast, a radio show on Jacaranda 94.2, a South-African radio station, played a parody of the song ‘Summer Nights’ from Grease detailing the events of his assassination. Pretty funny stuff, especially when the line detailing OBL trying to escape on a donkey comes up. You can listen to the song here.

Thanks to Riaan Rossouw for the tip.

NMAWorldEdition Does Osama’s Assassination – NSFW

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

NMAWorldEdition’s take on the Assassination of Osama Bin Laden. It’s as horribly inaccurate as it is extremely entertaining, virgin pig rape and all. Gotta love that Taiwanese craziness 🙂

Thanks to PredatorBDU for the tip.

EDIT: It seems sometime after the article was written that the video was made private. I’m sure a quick internet search will yield some positive results for those interested parties who want to see the vid in question. It’s worth a look.

Camo Candy

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Kimmie Candy Co. is debuting ChocoRocks Camouflage Candy Tubes at the SWEETS & SNACKS EXPO in Chicago, IL this month. Each 3 oz. tube is filled with chocolate chunks coated in green, black, and brown candy shells, giving the mix of candy a woodland-esque look. Also, they’re certified kosher, for those interested. The expo is late this month, so I wouldn’t expect to see them until this Summer.

See, I’ve got this picture here, and something to give away. But how do the two relate, you may ask? It’s simple, really: Write a pants-pissingly-hilarious caption about said pic in the comments section below, and if I think it’s the best, I’ll send you that something. But what could it be, exactly?


All entries are due by Friday, April 29th, 11:59 P.M. Eastern. One entry per person.

Good luck!

BAE Systems M777 Field Howizer In LEGO

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Have you ever wanted to see a highly detailed model of the BAE Systems M777 Field Howizer, in LEGO form? If so, then your dreams have come true. It was a model created by flickr user Colonel Henry for the Lego Marines Corps crewed weapons contest. In addition to the Howizer itself, and the environment it’s in, there’s also a full crew to man it. Pretty damn cool, if you ask me.

Iranian Wookiee Army

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Did the world-wide Star Wars fan club finally form its own army? Survey says: no. Instead, this display of gillie suits is in celebration of Iran’s annual Army Day, where Iranian soldiers of every branch march to display their military “might”, whether that be with flowers in their guns, or as a parade of furries.

Thanks to dailymail.co.uk for the original story, and the images this article relates to.

OSU Buckeyes to Don Camo Helmets

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

The Ohio State University football squad will be sporting Pixelated Camouflage helmets in their upcoming April 23 home game to honor the US military. After that, half will go back to their normal color Silver scheme, while some will be autographed by Jim Tressel and sold, with all the proceeds going to benefit the Ohio National Guard Family Readiness and Warrior Support Program, LiFE (Learning in Fitness & Education) through Sports Program and the Ruth and Jesse Owens Scholars Fund.

With their orange scarlet stripe down the middle, ya gotta admit, they look kind of like an Air Force guy wearing a disco belt.

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is Lendy’s Wings For Warriors sponsored by Mission First Tactical.

If you aren’t in the area, but would still like to contribute to the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation, then you can buy a Lendy’s Wings For Warriors t-shirt. I’ll be there, and I hope to see plenty of people in attendance.

Edit: I wasn’t able to attend. Boo. Still, from what I hear the event was a success!

Camouflage Fudge

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Design A Candy/Vickers Fudge of Port Macquarie, Australia is sending 8kg (about 17.6lbs) of camo-colored caramel-flavored fudge to Australian troops in Afghanistan. 4kg is a gift sent from customer Scott Bailey to his son’s Godmother whom is currently serving in the Australian Army Intelligence division. The additional 4kg is a donation from the confectionery shop, so there would be plenty to go around. The camouflage pattern design was a request from Mr. Bailey so that the fudge could be shared with other troops. Receiving morale boosting fudge from a loved one is always appreciated. The camouflage design is just icing on the… er, fudge.

Thanks to portnews.com.au for the original story.
