    Funny and except for "your loving daughter, Billy Jean", it almost sounds like something from the Civil War.

    If this parody had involved a black man writing back to his homies in the ghetto, it would be considered racist.

    Yeah, but some people are able to laugh at themselves.

    Let's not take things too seriously.
    It was funny.

    If your offended... lighten up.

    Thinking what the U.S. was like before 1942, there were a bunch of farm and ranch kids who could relate to that letter when they went off to WW II! :)

    The bit about the dice held true into the 1950s, anyway. :D A squad leader in my outfit in Korea had two pairs of those little half-size dice. One pair red; the other pair, white. He'd take all four in his hand. Shake 'em good, but you only heard one pair rattle. He'd roll out the red pair; pick 'em up; shake, and then out would come the white pair. Pretty good at dealing seconds and bottoms, too. Just a little country Mexican kid from down near Laredo...

    Oh I am not offended just making an interesting point.

    Telling me to "lighten up" works just fine, but would cause a street riot in other situations.

    You all know the difference between the marines and the boy scouts? The boy scouts have adult supervision.
