What's marital law got to do with the military???

-- Andy (2000EOD@prodigy.net), February 09, 1999.

From the American Heritage Dictionary Of The English Language...

[Mawort-. Name of an Italic deity who became the god of war at Rome (and also had agricultural attributes); hence also the name of the planet Mars (doubtless from its red color, the color of blood).

1. Latin Mars (stem Mart-), Mars: March, Mars, Martial, (Martian), Martin, Martlet.

2. Adjectival derivative *mart-i-kos in Latin Marcus, a praenomen: Marcia, Marcus, Mark.]

Jack -

Well, tell those !@#$%^& soldiers to get the heck out of your house! That'll take care of it!

Oh, you meant "marital" difficulties. Emily Latella voice: "Never mind."

Love your chicken sandwiches, by the way...

there is a line here that, if I used it, would guarantee a flame war like none seen here since inception. Prudence and discretion require that i not use it, but, dratz, it IS funny, in a politically in- correct way. Oh well, Y'all 'll jus have to imagine it!!
