A U.S. Army Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff.
While waiting for the coffee machine to finish brewing, the colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled.
He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep.
He posed the question: Just how much of sex was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure"?
A Major chimed in with 75-25% in favor of work.
A Captain said it was 50-50%.
A lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending upon his state of inebriation at the time.
There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the PFC who was in charge of making the coffee and asked for HIS opinion.
Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure."
The colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why.
"Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them."
The room fell silent.
WASHINGTON (SR) - President Barack Obama has directed the Pentagon to
replace the "don't ask, don't tell" policy with one that will allow openly gay
men and women to serve in the military. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and the
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, will present
details of the plan to U.S. lawmakers next Tuesday.
According to sources inside the Pentagon, changes to be implemented
include adding choreography to marching regimens, equipping all dorms with
double-wide bunks, new fitted uniforms in seasonal color palettes, the installation of hot tubs, and more.
In a potentially controversial move, the Pentagon will announce the
formation of a new all-gay, all male company tentatively named "69th Fighting
Sources credit the creation of the 69th to House member Barney Frank, who has reportedly been working "very, very closely" with gay Pentagon officials.
