For those of us who were enlisted men in the military, you will understand. And a reminder to the former officers among us "Some were raised to be gentlemen, others require an act by Congress."


A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing tohis staff.
While waiting for the coffee machine to finish brewing, theColonel decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night beforeand he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was considered“work” and how much of it was “fun?”

A Major chimed in with 75%-25% in favor of work.

A Captain said it was 50%-50%.

A Lieutenant responded with 25%-75% in favor of fun, dependingupon his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the Colonel turned to the Private FirstClass who was in charge of making the coffee and asked for his opinion.

Without any hesitation, the young Private First Class responded,“Sir, it has to be 100% fun.”

The colonel was surprised and as you might guess, asked “Why?”

“Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers wouldhave me doing it for them.”

The room fellsilent.
