An Encounter in Iraq

A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road  an American Marine lay on the ground in a similar but less serious state. 

The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened. 

The Marine reported:
"I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.    
"I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved.  
"And he yelled back that Barack Obama is a lying, good-for-nothing, left wing Commie who isn't even an American.  
"So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian!  
"He retaliated by yelling, 'Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi!' 
"And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us."

  3. A man was washed up on a beach after a shipwreck. Only a sheep and a sheepdog were washed up with him. After looking around, he realized that they were stranded on a deserted island.

    After being there awhile, he got into the habit of taking his two animal companions to the beach every evening to watch the sunset. One particular evening, the sky was a fiery red with beautiful cirrus clouds, the breeze was warm and gentle - a perfect night for romance.

    As they sat there, the sheep started looking better and better to the lonely man. Soon, he leaned over to the sheep and put his arm around it.

    But the sheepdog, ever protective of the sheep, growled fiercely until the man took his arm from around the sheep. After that, the three of them continued to enjoy the sunsets together, but there was no more cuddling.

    A few weeks passed by and, lo and behold, there was another shipwreck. The only survivor was Nancy Pelosi. That evening, the man brought Nancy to the evening beach ritual. It was another beautiful evening - red sky, cirrus clouds, a warm and gentle breeze - perfect for a night of romance. Pretty soon, the man started to get those feelings again.

    He fought the urges as long as he could but he finally gave in and leaned over to Nancy and told her he hadn't had sex for months. Nancy batted her eyelashes and asked if there was anything “she could do for him”.


    He said, “Take the dog for a walk.”
