Because of my location and my affiliation with the U. S. Military, I found this humorous.

At least things over there aren't always bad.

For a little background... it's a parody of the song shown during Comic Relief 2005 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_Relief), which in the UK is a national charity fundraising day held once every couple of years. The guys over in Iraq, not being able to join in went and made their own version.

So not only is it supporting all the guys stationed in Iraq, it helped raise money for good causes too :)

I believe it also crashed the Ministry of Defence's network for a bit with people emailing the original 50MB file!

Yeah, it's not US, but still it's a riot! Wife's from Amarillo, TX and she got a kick out of it.

Just for S & G's, who can give me a definition of a dragoon? I know what it is, but how about the rest of y'all?

As far as I know, dragoons were people who rode into a battle, but got off their horses to fight, seems strange to lose the advantage of height & speed, as cavalry are pretty terrifying.

Cavalry now drive tanks, as far as a modern Dragoon is concerned, lord knows????

And Nige wins the grand prize of a box full of moondust!

Good question about the modern Dragoon. It's all due to military intelligence. And we all know that military intelligence is the original oxymoron, with emphasis on moron a lot of the time.

Before the advent of accurate firearms, cavalry wasn't very effective against a good pike wall. Horses aren't entirely stupid (though the rider may be).
