"And what was the main reason for your demotion."

"Miss calculation of wind resistance."

If memory serves, most drops have 3 of everything that needs to be useful.

I didn’t realize we were invading either Carolina

Darn GPS! You can never fully trust them!

Dear God,
Last week I prayed I would win the Mega Millions jackpot. Maybe you misunderstood and gave it someone in South Carolina instead of to me in North Carolina. This just seems so unfair because all I really wanted was a nice, tough SUV that I could use when I go hunting! btw, I live in Johnsonville, North Carolina.

An obvious equipment failure. Break the airplane in half and stomp off into the dugout.

My wife wants to know, can they keep it?


It's raining Humvees!
Hallelujah, it's raining Humvees!

I believe they call that a "premature calculation."

Did you drop enough for everybody?

Jeff, if you like your Humvee, you can keep your Humvee!

Snork @ Burt

Things that make you go "HMMWV..."

Lighten up! It hit the ground, didn't it. News is when something UNUSUAL happens. Like if it went into outer space.

WOW! Drone car delivery. Amazon?

As Oprah once said between wolfing down donuts "You get a Humvee....and you get a Humvee!"

Everything went perfectly, except for the early release. Except...that...doesn't...sound ...perfect. Tell it to the platoon that has to hike 7 miles to get to their humvee. Shoulda sprung for the valet parking.

In world War Two this would be considered a near miss.
