    I knew it wasn’t today, but as I am famous (or infamous) for forgetting birthdays, I figured better early than never.

    I’ve been trying to collect the pejoratives that the various service branches lovingly cast at one another: can you all help me out?

    Thus far I have:

    Navy: Squiddies
    Airforce: Chairforce
    Marines: Muscles are Required, Intelligence Not Essential! 
    Army: Mud pounders, grunts

    Any more?

    Ms. Bookworm,
    I was wondering if that was it was something along the same kind of lines as your *timely* postings of the Watcher’s Council awards.

    Marines are fondly known as Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children and are most commonly used in those times when it absolutely, positively must be destroyed overnight.
