The Redcoats Are Silly!

Some poor Grenadier Guardsman is in trouble for, well, this.  And all he was trying to do was make his job less boring.  And maybe do a wee little hommage to John Cleese.

You’ve got to hope his officers are at least as tolerant as those fellows in Norway.

The temptation is always there. I remember, when I was in US Navy bootcamp, we used to be marched everywhere in companies. Usually, somebody would call cadence and the company would respond. One time a bright soul did:

The Navy sails from shore to shore!
Sound off.
One, two.
So, what the hell we marching for?
Sound off.
Three, four.
They call this place the New Nay-vee!
Sound off.
One, two.
Where we gonna march at sea?
Sound off.
Three, four.

Alas, for some reason, the staff of Great Lakes Navy Boot Camp were not amused.

The boot camp staff are just a buncha spoilsports. After all, it strikes me as a valid question.
