WORSE THAN WAR?
This Onion parody, Freed POW Already Sick Of Family, is quite amusing:
By the end of his first weekend home, Dobson realized that his main reason for joining the Army was to escape the Dobson clan.
“I used to say that I joined the Army to escape Cape Girardeau,” Dobson said. “But what I was really trying to escape was my family. I love them, but they’re clingy and whiny and bossy and cranky and snippy and annoying and smothering. Those Iraqi captors were pretty bad, but they’re nowhere near as bad as my current ones.”
I also recommend Hostel-Dwelling Swede Getting Laid Big-Time, but shall refrain from excerpting it.
