    Guess times sure haven’t changed in 98 years in the British armed services.

    If they want to send all the asparagus to Mars I’m fine with that!

    I had a cement lined trough in the desert where I grew asparagus. Kept ground squirrels and martians out.

    How strange to force men to grow mustaches as part of the military kit.

    Given how expensive Martian asparagus would be, I can see it being the next hot menu item for the one-percenters.

    The British Army has done similar things for many years. At one time, side whiskers (what I believe were called "muttonchops) were regulation for the enlisted men.

    I just realized something…the year the British Army stopped making mustaches compulsory for officers was1916, when they were losing thousands ( sometimes tens of thousands ) of soldiers in the first MINUTES of any given battle.
    Coincidence? I don’t think so
