A Marine Gunny has given a new meaning to the phrase "tramp stamp".
If you're ever lucky enough to be in Afghanistan, Gunnery Sgt. Benjamin Lepping’s left butt cheek has a special surprise.
If I'm ever 'lucky' enough to be in Afghanistan, that's the last thing I wanta see. The undersides of 10,000 broken Humvees will be infinitely preferable, thank you very much. Some things are best left to the imagination. Or left out of it.
News of Lepping's Palin tattoo -- which displays her trademark glasses and smiling mug -- has apparently been making the rounds in Lepping's ranks overseas, and appeared online at the Military Times website on Thursday. The Times' headline was, "Marine’s cheeky Sarah Palin tattoo the butt of jokes."
"When I came to Afghanistan, I expected to find many strange and unusual sights," the paper's reporter penned. "A gunnery sergeant with a tattoo of Sarah Palin on his buttocks wasn’t one of them."
I can honestly say this is the first time I've seen a Gunny's hind end. Horrifying.
Goddam, Gunny, ya coulda at least had the tattoo be of the back of her head while she was kissin' yer ass. Shit, if ya wanted remembrance of the good times in Alaska ya coulda got a tat of a Husky or a moose or crabs or sumthin'. Well, maybe not crabs. You probly got plenty of those.
The funny part (to me, sick puppy that I am) of this is that the guy's an EOD man in 6th Marines (2d MarDiv, my old outfit. Fuckin' swell. Yeesh.). One hiccup and that whole grisly tableau, hash marks and all, will be hangin' on some goat humper's wall.
*Credit where credit is due: Mrs. G came up with that. Thank you, sweetie. I think.
