    G.I. Joe grunt.

    G.I Joe Grunt


    source of image: http://www.gijoeclub.com/forums/
    One the first things I collected as a child was G.I Joe Action figures… Dolls for boys.
    A lot of the kids in the neighbourhood also collected them, we played war together on the porches

    They took a lot of wear and tear… and when they fell apart we simply glued them back together.
    Back then, the most exiting thing is when G.I Joe action figures came out with “Swivel Arms”. collectors know the difference : “straight arm” Gi Joe and Swivel arm G.I Joe Action Figures…

    and now for something completely different.

    Grunt:
    The term “grunt” is used in the military as a general term for someone who’s MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) is “Infantry”. In the Marine Corps all MOS’ preceeded by the number “03” are Infantry. About as “grunt” as you can get in the Corps is “0311 – Basic Rifleman”.
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=grunt
    As I was told, the term is a slang that comes from when a infantry soldier takes his pack off and takes a break for marching. WWII

    Austin 3:16
    According to what I read,
    “Stunning” Steve Austin was looking for a name to get his persona over as a heel in the WWF (today WWE) His British wife mentioned that the Tea they were drinking was “Stone Cold”…
    The rest is wrestling entertainment history, Stone Cold Steve Austin became hugely popular in the “Attitude ” period of WWF / WWE… both as a Heel and as an anti-hero face.
    One of Austin famous quotes came from a story between Stone cold and Jake the Snake Roberts…
