One for the Marines on our forum
In the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was a retired Marine who was reputed to
have the best hunting dog ever, by the name of "Gunny."
Three Marine Generals went up into the mountains and wanted to rent him.
The old Marine said, "He's a real good huntin' dog. Gonna cost ya $50 a day."
They agreed and three days later came back with the limit.
The next year they came back. "'Gunny got better," the old fellow said,
"this year I'm gonna charge you $75 a day."
Again they agreed, and 2 days later they came back with the limit.
The third year they came back and told the old Marine they had to have
"Gunny" even if it cost $100 a day.
The old Marine spat and angrily replied, "You can have the worthless mutt
for $5 a day, and even at that rate I'm overcharging you $4 !!"
The bewildered Generals asked, "But we don't understand, what happened to
"Well, a bunch of new Lieutenants from Quantico came up and rented him.
One of the idiots called him 'Sergeant Major' by mistake,
and now all the SOB does is sit on his A** all day and bark!"
