Jason, don't tell me you actually own one of those uniforms! Those infomercials will convince you to buy anything. *faceplant in hand*

What scares me is that you ordered enough for your whole brigade! I can tell you those AREN'T Zouaves uniforms. You've been had!!

Even more troublesome is that you requested the owner of the Mason-Dixon tavern to create a "Gentlemens Club" section of the bar for you and that you re-named your brigade to the "Blue Oyster Boys". Now that's disturbing!!! :)

I knew I remembered that name from something. Police Academy! Good movies. I miss the 80s.

I think we have finally found a name for the Union side of the MDT!

I really thought it was the new VMI cadet uniforms and the core of the VMI Lite Footed Regiment.

I was right there with you, General McOmish. Great name for a band.
Sir's... *strikes a lucifer, bringing a cigar to life* in regards to the VMI uniforms, I can only speculate. This was a photo that was found in General Hample's foot locker when he was captured in the last scrap he was in.
* makes some perfectly formed smoke rings *
General Hecht, I was thinking they looked more like ballonists uniforms. Speaking of ballonists, the last one that landed said he had unintentionally glided over General Meadows lines and...sweet Jesus in the morning...if I told you what he saw...sir, it would make a sailor blush! I really don't think Daisy dukes and cowboys boots belong on officers but...they are Rebs, sir.
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

* steps out of his Civil War persona for a minute *

Gents, Im glad for the camaraderie we have. I hope nobody ever takes me serious. I would never intentionally try to offend anybody of either side. I have the utmost respect for you gentlemen. <salute>

Jason, you're absolutely right. It's all in good fun and no one is offended. If so, I'm sure they'll send you a message to say you/I/one of us have crossed the line. NP, yet! ;0)

Rob, you're absolutely right, that was from the Police Academy. Some other good ones were Airplane, Bull Durham, Full Metal Jacket, Mighty Python and the Holy Grail. All full of good one liners.

Have a good weekend guys!

Don't forget to try my new Grand Scenario- Shiloh game. I'm curious what you think.

Ferris Bueller, Die Hard, Uncle Buck, Crocodile Dundee.... good times...

All in fun!

Although I do like that name for a Yankee tavern still.
