Confrontation in Basra

A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Basra when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist, badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of
the road was an American Marine in 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 is a miserable, lowlife, scumbag, and he yelled back that Senator Ted Kennedy is a good-for-nothing, fat, left wing liberal drunk. So I said that Osama Bin Ladin dresses and acts like a frigid, mean spirited woman!"

He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Hillary Clinton!"

"And, there we were, standing in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us."


OK, I'll be posting here now, glad you responded to my other email. I wasn't sure where you were posting. Biz is great & I've been looking at the other post & I think I've found a home. Biz is good, the duct spinners work real good.
Hey Greasy,

Glad you like the duct spinner, we have found them to be invaluable. The latest and greatest thing for greasers is the foamer and you can see the whole thread here:

Make sure you read the thread from the beginning so that you nderstand the whole idea behind the foamer. This thing is going to change the way grease is done.

Happy to see that you are doing well.
