Hooper: Daddy, who fought the first war ever?

Me: Uh, cavemen, I guess.

Hooper: Cavemen? Aw, man … I would’ve thought it was pirates.

Friend (to Hooper, about a TV commercial): Are those soldiers?

Hooper: No, dude, those are Marines!

Friend: Marines?

Hooper: Yeah. You can tell cuz they say “Hoo-ah!” a lot.

Friend: “Hoo-ah?”

Hooper: Yeah.

Friend: What does that mean?

Hooper: I don’t know, but it sounds really cool.


  1. Hooper,

    Those guys musta been phonies because real Marines would have bellowed ” oorah “. You might be able to verify this by watching an episode of Jericho or taking my word for it. I was a Navy Corpsman assigned to the USMC in Korea for 14 months. I learned their strengths, foibles and shout-outs.
