Home for the Holidays is the new awesome

i like coming home for the holidays to catch up with my family. I noticed a new addition to our mantel decor this time. As many of you know, my brother is training to be a Navy Seal, and this is the certificate he got to mark his fulfillment of underwater explosive school:

The United States Navy Sea, Air and Land (SEAL) forces: the elite Special Operations Forces of the U.S. Navy, employed in unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, direct action, Counter-Terrorism, and special reconnaissance operations. It is like the manliest of the manly part of the armed forces. And the certificates they hand out have little cartoons on them.

I mean, sure. The cartoons smoke cigars and carry dynamite and knives. But. C'mon. They are cartoons.

    I like spending the holiday with spammers that try to get you to go to their site.
