    Talk about bad timing — seeing her husband dressed up to leave for the review was the only time Matilda was in the mood.

    Maxine loves men uniforms. Especially with white gloves; they don’t leave any marks.

    I think the Cheshire cat’s black-furred brother is perched on top of that poor man’s helmet.

    Question: who in his right mind engraves art into a working fireplace?

    The ash broom & bellows indicate that it is still in use.

    Reginald thought he was ready for the Officer Review Board, but Eunice was about to tell him about the huge mustard stain on his jacket. “Men!….You can dress ‘em up, but you can’t take ’em anywhere!”

    Martha loved a man in uniform. She was especially impressed with the way he “stood at attention.”

    You need body armor as well as that helmet if it is going to be a San Francisco Walmart.

    Walmart Greeter is only cover for his real job – store security. After being run out of a few cities by shoplifters, the new policy is that thieves will be run through, beheaded, and shipped to the store brand cat food factory.

    /// His dress uniform is self-defeating.

    It will serve when the foe he is beating,

    but it fails in a trench,

    Still, (designed by the French),

    it looks great from behind, while retreating.

    (My apologies to France and the French for repeating this defamatory cliché. The joke was too tempting!)

    If he wants to impress this lass/

    And distinguish himself from the mass/

    He’ll need more than that crest-/

    He must cover his chest/

    With a brilliantly burnished cuirass.
