the title of this blog is something i’m fond of saying. however, i didn’t come up with it. the late novelist and civil wear historian, shelby foote, came up with it years ago. it’s a pretty much true statement. at any rate, it means with southern infantry and northern artillery the us of a could win just about any war with anybody.
i was sent the following in an email by a friend a week or so ago. i’d been wanting to stick it up here and share it with you but i’ve been busy with the brown eyed girl. things are going well on that front so i’m back home for a few days of r and r on my own. i have no idea where it came about or who originated the email. all i know is that it’s funny as hell and there just might be a few grains of truth to it as well. the point being is, the photo combines southern infantry and northern artillery in a 21st century way. i hope you enjoy it as much as i did.
The Pentagon announced TODAY the formation of a new 500-man elite fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces (USRSF). These mostly Southern boys will be dropped off into Iraq and will be given only the following facts about terrorists:
1. The season opened today.
2. There is no limit.
3. They taste just like chicken.
4. They don’t like beer, pickups, country music, or Jesus.
5. They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt.
The Pentagon expects the problem in Iraq to be over by Friday. Applications are available at your local Wal-Mart sporting goods counter.
