My Newest adopted soldier shares my love of Monty Python a British comedy group who made such funny films as "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (which has also been turned into a Musical).
So when it came time for me to send him something amusing (to break the ice on the whole "weird gifts sent from the Goofy Aussie girl") I needed to find him something cute and fluffy and teddy-bear like.
But not an actual Teddy-bear - after all - he's a big tough USA Army Sgt and they have a reputation of Manliness to uphold and perpetuate. Or so I'm told :)*
So I searched, and searched, and searched some more, and found him something that I thought might be *just the thing*. And had it sent off to him at his dry & dusty base.
Behold and quiver at the mightiness of the Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh
(also known as "Joey")
I haven't heard yet how he goes with Holy Hand Grenades but I'm willing to beat he can count to at least
As a substitute Teddy-bear for my adoptee I think he's going well!
*I also believe in truth, justice, the pursuit of happiness and the Easter Bunny!
This post brought to you by the numbers three and five; the Letter Y and as a "go on - mention Joey" plea from someone that shall remain unnamed err he sayeth "Ni" at me.
