I posted this in rec.boats yesterday; someone suggested that I submit it to you. I'm not sure it's that funny but it breaks my wife up every time we mention it. :-) -- Bob * * * In rec.boats, firstname.lastname@example.org writes: >In article <LEN.94Mar11120638@persephone.think.com>, email@example.com ( >Leonard Franco) writes: >> >Let's see... where can you buy a marine... > >Try the Navy. I hear whenever they catch one they sell'em to the locals. Reminds me of my neighbor, a wonderful woman who thought the world of her late father. This was about thirty years ago-- her father loved to listen to march music-- that's right-- marches, as in John Phillip Sousa. After much effort to find the right gift for his birthday, she hit paydirt. A modern (transistor!) radio that had not only AM and FM, but also (ta da...) the *Marine Band*. She was absolutely heartbroken, when informed after presenting this gift to her father, that the Marine Band no longer played on the radio. The store manager was non-plussed at the tongue-lashing she gave him for false advertising when she returned the "obsolete" equipment.
