Life Imitates Art: Stripes Edition

According to the New York Daily News, the guards at Camp Bucca, a military prison in Iraq, have been having some interesting hand-to-hand combat competitions.

In front of a cheering male audience, two young women wearing only bras and panties throw themselves into a mud-filled plastic kiddie pool and roll around in a wild wrestling match.

At one point a man in the audience raises a water bottle and douses the entwined pair.

At another, a "referee" moves in to break up the scantily clad grapplers.

A young blond lifts her T-shirt to expose her breasts. A brunette turns her back to the camera and exposes her thong undies.


It looks like the Army has finally adopted the training regimen prescribed by the 1981 movie "Stripes." Astute readers may recall that John Candy's character, Dewey 'Ox' Oxburger, engaged in a similar hand-to-hand combat as part of his training.

In other news, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis will be taking over operations at Abu Gharaib and the Army is working on a new attack Winnebago to crush the insurgency.

Yours truly,
Mr. X

...I want you...
