    Well, not sure if it's a "joke" or if it's really true.

    Katie Couric was interviewing a Marine sniper, and asked him, "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist."

    The Marine shrugged and replied, "A slight recoil."


    LOL!! That's tellin' her!

    (I hope that really happened. Does anyone know?)

    I've heard this story, but I don't know if it's true. Either way, it reminds me of some of the Marines I've had the pleasure to know.

    Someone used to have that as part of their signature and they had the specifics for it. I don't remember who it was, but maybe someone will help us verify it.

    Not exactly new. I've seen variations on this for years dating back to at least the Vietnam era (for me).

    Its fake.

    Couric would never call them "terrorists" she'd say "insurgent".

    Priceless! Real or not, it is the perfect answer to the question.
