INTRODUCTION Today’s Special: “Military Man”
One day in artillery instruction, a colonel came to inspect the class. First up was Private O’Hara. The colonel got in his face and asked him what reading he had on his 105 mm. howitzer. “Two- nine-oh-seven, sir,” was the reply.
“Soldier,” said the colonel, “don’t you know you never say ‘oh’ in the artillery? You say ‘zero.’ What’s your name, soldier?”
“Zero Hara, sir,” answered the private.

The Aussie replies, “Nah mate, I came yesterday!”
