Tun Tavern and Marine humor

Could we get away with a reasonably respectful Marine Humor subpage or article? Reading the reference to Tun Tavern, I'm reminded of the story of the first payday, in which the first marine through the line waited for the second, and then said to him, "Let me tell you how it was in the Old Corps..." This actually articulates some of the Marine respect for tradition, if not tribal lore. Howard C. Berkowitz 18:45, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
