Work or Pleasure

There is probably a ‘Colonel’ of truth is this story:

C.O.’s Morning Briefing:

The Commanding Officer of a Regiment in the U. S. Marine Corps was about to start the morning briefing to his Staff & Battalion & Company Commanders. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, he decided to pose a question to all assembled. He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before & he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was ‘work’ & how much of it was ‘pleasure?’

The X.O. chimed in w/75-25% in favor of work.

A Captain said it was 50-50%.

The Colonel’s Aide, a Lt., responded w/25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending on his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the Colonel turned to the PFC who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion?

With no hesitiation, the young PFC responded, “Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure.”

The Colonel was surprised &, as you might guess, asked why?

“Well, Sir,” began the PFC, “if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them.”

The room fell silent.


God Bless the Marine Corps
