    Old Farts

    The Gunslinger & the Old Prospector

    An old prospector walks his tired old mule into a western town one day.
    He'd been out in the desert for about six months without a drop of
    whiskey. He walked up to the first saloon he came to and tied his old mule
    to the hitch rail.

    As he stood there brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a
    gunslinger walked out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of
    whiskey in the other. The gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed,
    saying, "Hey old man, have you ever danced?"

    The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance.
    I just never wanted to."

    A crowd had gathered by then and the gunslinger said, "Well, you old fool,
    you're gonna' dance now," and started shooting at the old man's feet.

    T he old prospector was hopping around and everybody was laughing.

    When the gunslinger fired his last bullet, he holstered his gun and turned
    around to go back into the saloon.

    The old man reached up on the mule, drew his shotgun, and pulled both
    hammers back making a double clicking sound.

    The gunslinger heard the sound and everything got quiet.

    The crowd watched as the gunslinger slowly turned around looking down both
    barrels of the shotgun.

    The old man asked, "Did you ever kiss a mule square on the ass?"

    The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No. But I've always wanted to."

    I resemble that remark

    "It's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you"
    -Batman Begins

    There are gains for all our losses
    There are balms for all our pain
    But, when youth, the dream, departs
    It takes something from our hearts
    And it never comes again

    "Captain, it is I Ensign Pulver. I just threw your damn palm tree overboard. Now, what's all this crap about no movie tonight?" -Ens Pulver in Mister Roberts

    The man who will go where his colors go, without asking who will fight a phantom foe in the jungle and mountain range, without counting, and who will suffer and die in the midst of incredible hardship, without complaint, is still what he has always been, from Imperial Rome to sceptered Britain to democratic America. He is the stuff of which legions are made. ...His pride is in his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thorough and coldly realistic, to fit him for what he must face...and his obedience is to his orders. He has been called United State Marine.
    T.R. Fehrenbach, This Kind of War
