Avery had a couple of friends over tonight and we sat around playing board games for hours. (Edije-we LOVE that Wizardology game that you sent us!) At one point in the evening, Avery randomly asked me...what's that one thing you say when your not wearing underwear? "Going commando?" I asked. Yeah...that's it! He is in the habit of asking the weirdest questions at the weirdest times these days. The boys then proceeded to randomly add "going commando" into their conversations for the rest of the night.

So, here's my question for the blogoshere...what are the origins of that phrase? I wonder where it comes from. Anybody know? Have any interesting theories?

Long, long ago in the late 60's some commandos from the 324th Brigade were ambushed on the Da Nang trail outside of Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam and the fire fight was so fierce from Charley and it was so scary that they lost control of their bowels and were forced to throw away their under wear, and then they were forced to battle from then forth without undergarments to help support their little troops, the ones who survived the surprise attack returned to base and when it was discovered that what had transpired the army promptly awarded them with the prestigious Brown Starfish Medal for valor in the face of overwhelming stench.

Thats how it all went down Lish, one fateful day. Mystery Solved.
