Coupla things...

Want a free gun? Gunner has some suggestions.

Gunner also notes that the Brady Campaign wants to immediately ban all semi-auto firearms. Except the Ruger Mini-14.

Beth is just envious. I got the better end of the deal. Ask any woman standing in line at a public restroom, which they'd rather have. Of course, as Bill the Rotorhead observes... some women thought God said trains, and they missed theirs, and got these instead.

The military usually goes to great lengths when naming things and developing acronyms to avoid obvious goofs. We still got Operation Allied Force for Kosovo, however. Ever notice how the military in particular, but even the press never referred to it as OAF? Think that would be the case with OIF and OEF - acronyms you see all the time in military documents and even in the press?

Anyway - sometimes you just can't avoid it - those funny combinations.
