It Would Probably Make Fine TP, Too
So imagine you’re thousands of miles away from home and your family in some third world hell hole, and the only thing you want is something to keep you from going insane with boredom. Then a mystery box appears. Does it contain the latest Playboy, or at the very least Maxim? Well some troops in Afghanistan were about to be disappointed.
Tumblr user Everqueer, is currently stationed in Afghanistan. Many troops depend on care packages from home to help keep their minds occupied. Packages come in from friends, family, and strangers containing things like snacks, soap, TP, and reading material.
Some jerk sent us two boxes of this awful book (SPOILER ALERT: George Washington – Patriot; George Soros – Pinhead) instead of anything soldiers at a remote outpost in Afghanistan might need, like, say, food or soap. Just burned the whole lot of them on my Commander’s orders.
The two boxes contained copies of Pinheads and Patriots from Fox News blowhard, and loofah fan, Bill O’Reilly. Copies of the books have also been distributed through Operation Shoebox, which gets a free copy of the book for every $26 copy sold.
So you have to pay double for the book, just so a solider gets a free one? O’Reilly, what a douche. But if our service men are limited on toilet paper, I guess his book could make a fine stand in.
