Military ‘Humor’…

Three men are sitting stiffly side by side on a long commercial flight.  After they’re airborne and the plane has leveled off, the man in the window seat abruptly says, distinctly and confidently, in a loud voice:

“Admiral, United States Navy, retired.  Married, two sons, both surgeons.”

After a few minutes the man in the aisle seat states through a tight lipped smile, “Admiral, United States Coast Guard, retired.  Married, two sons, both judges.”

After some thought, the fellow in the center seat decides to introduce himself.  With a twinkle in his eye he proclaims, “Master Gunnery Sergeant, United States Marine Corps, retired.  Never married, two sons, both Admirals.

Bada bing…
During training exercises, the Lieutenant who was driving down a muddy back road encountered another jeep stuck in the mud with a red-faced Colonel at the wheel.

“Your jeep stuck, Sir?” asked the Lieutenant as he pulled alongside.

“Nope,” replied the Colonel, coming over and handing him the keys, “Yours is.”

Having just moved into his new office, a pompous, new Colonel was sitting at his desk when an Airman knocked on the door.  Conscious of his new position, the Colonel quickly picked up the phone, told the Airman to enter, then said into the phone, “Yes, General, I’ll be seeing him this afternoon and I’ll pass along your message.  In the meantime, thank you for your good wishes, sir.”  Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the young enlisted man, he asked, “What do you want?”

“Nothing important, sir,” the airman replied, “I’m just here to hook up your telephone.”

Officer: “Soldier, do you have change for a dollar?”

Soldier: “Sure, buddy.”

Officer: “That’s no way to address an officer!  Now let’s try it again!  Do you have change for a dollar?”

Soldier: “No, SIR!”

An Air Force Chief Master Sergeant and a General were sitting in the barbershop.  They were both just getting finished with their shaves, when the barbers reached for some after-shave to slap on their faces.  The General shouted, “Hey, don’t put that stuff on me! My wife will think I’ve been in a whorehouse!”

The Sergeant turned to his barber and said, “Go ahead and put it on me.  My wife doesn’t know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like.”

“Well,” snarled the tough old Navy Chief to the bewildered Seaman, “I suppose after you get discharged from the Navy, you’ll just be waiting for me to die so you can come and pee on my grave.

“Not me, Chief!” the Seaman replied. “Once I get out of the Navy, I’m never going to stand in line again!”

The elderly American gentleman arrived in Paris by plane.  At French Customs, he fumbled for his passport.

“You ‘ave been to France before, Monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically. The old gent admitted that he had been to France previously.

“Zen, you should know enough to ‘ave your passport ready for inspection.”

The American said, “The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”

“Impossible. You Americans always ‘ave to show your passports on arrival in France!”

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look.  Then he quietly explained, “Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach in ’44, I couldn’t find any Frenchmen to show it to.”

  1. Gotta love those old NCOs. . .

    Reckon I’ll do a “tribute to Old NFO” and post a few military jokes myself.

    Need something to lighten up the old blog after the past few days.


  2. Thanks for posting! I needed this after the day I’ve had. Nothing like a good laugh to make a bad day fade away.

  3. As an Airdale you should know the variation of that last joke about the pilot looking for landing instructions in Berlin…”the last time I was here was in 1944 and we didn’t land.”
