Re: Pipe Band Limericks

My compliments dear Mr. Fingers
for delivering some Limerical zingers
For the pompous you've skewered
with wit unobscured
And left them a sting that still lingers!

Re: Pipe Band Limericks

Re: Pipeband Haiku

A piper was flung into Gaol,
and petitioned his friends to make Bail,
He feared doing time
for committing the crime
Of publicly thumbing his A-hole

Pipers on Bagram

The piping Gods must be laughing. Just when I found another piper on Al Asad I was transferred to Bagram.

Anyone know of any pipers here?

Re: Clanrye - Current status, opinions?

There seems to be two views on a synthetic chanter reed.

One is to spit on the concept because it is for beginners. They dismiss the idea out of hand.

Re: Why do you love the pipes?

Nothing says "Up Yours" to the Muhjadeen than playing the pipes during a mortar attack!

Truly empowering.
