We need a Caption Contest for this pic. What say you all?

I'll start it off:

Why do all of the men in that photo have a strange expression on their faces that makes it look as if they were all constipated???
My guess is "army food".

... but it looks like each of them has an arming wire anchored to the pin where the tube locks to the barrel.....
That's a retention cable, to keep from losing the lock pin.

That's a bong attachment for the Jamaican Army mon, with solid state electronic ignition system. (Note the little blue button.)
Hilarious. Funniest reply I've ever seen on the forum.

Maybe they're getting ready to execute the poor little water bottle in the foreground?

this looks like a classic example of a motovated devildog teaching a class to some very confused iraq army soldiers. God I'm glad to be home.

P.S. notice the man second from the right of the shotgun.....what do you suppose he's planning?

Actually, I'm a bit fascinated by the variety of camouflage schemes - especially the dark and light blue water camouflage and the Urban Outfitter camouflage.

The yellow camouflage uniforms look a lot like Bangladesh Border Guards.

No kidding, I think I just used up my Wild Blue for the rest of the month opening this thread.


The attachment is a shotgun exhaust tip meant to appeal to the ricer crowd. It's worth at least 50 horsepower, er, feet per second. Now if they'd only chromed it...

Arabic names and alphabet don't necessarily mean Arabs

Could be Malaysian; they use Arabic, and the men in the picture look more Asian than Arab to me.

Haven't been able to find those uniforms anywhere in online searches, though.

Actually, it's the latest in police equipment, designed to shoot hot doughnuts to cops in a standoff, or other times they can't make it to the local Crispy Creme.
