On Intelligence in the Army

So a weekend or two ago (doesn’t matter when it happened, it was funny), my buddy D and I are waiting for a cab outside the commissary. We’ve just purchased a pizza from Anthony’s Pizza and it’s sitting on the short wall behind us. We’re minding our own business and chatting about zombies or robots or some such and this group of people meander up beside us with the apparent hopes of also catching a taxi. D and I take note of them and then continue our conversation when all of a sudden it happens.

“Hey man, where’d ya’ get dat pizza? Reggie’s?”

Reggie’s is a restaurant on another post. Whether or not they actually serve pizza I couldn’t tell you, but it is irrelevant.  I look at him, look at my pizza box which plainly reads “Anthony’s” in bright green and red lettering across the lid, then look back at him deadpan.

“Yep,” I reply.

“How muchu pay?”

“About $15.00.”

He proceeds to turn to his associates who have either not noticed his error, or are just playing along. Either way, he states that he’s gonna go get a pizza. He walks about five steps, then changes direction and says he’s getting Popeye’s instead. No joke.

After they’re out of earshot, D and I break out laughing. Some people…

Catch you on the flip side.
