So Easy A Caveman Can Do It

That's the caption to a mock US Army poster over at Free Republic. Link via Rand Simberg post, which also links an About.com article on the US military's requirements regarding education and Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) scores.

In Rand's comments I had a little fun with an old novelty song by the Hollywood Argyles.

Theres a man in Iraqi that's world-renowned
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
He's stationed way out back in Karbala town
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
He dont eat nothin' but a MRE stew
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
Well this cat's name is-a Alley Oop
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)

He got a armored Humvee instead of dinosaw-ah
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
And he can shoot off your head before you count to faw-ah
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
He got M-16 rifle and a big ugly mort-ah
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
He go hunt for Baathist rebels and-a al-Qaeda
(Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)

(Alley Oop)
He's the toughest GI there is alive
(Alley Oop)
Wearin' clothes from a wildcat's hide
(Alley Oop)
He's the king of the desert jive
Look at that cave man go!

(One grammatical error - "Iraqi" should have been "Iraq." I challenge any caveman to do better.)

Update: Power Line has an image of a banner that appeared at the November 3 Army-Air Force football game. John Hinderaker writes, "It's reported that cadets on both sides cheered wildly."
