When I first saw this pen it looked all too commonplace. The silhouettes all too familiar; an ink pen and 7.62 cartridges. Wait… what?
Yes, an ink pen made of 7.62 cartridges. Classy, like machine-gun-infantry classy, baby. Yeah.
Turns out the owner of the pen, a friend of a friend, happened to be peddling them too. It’s a longer story than anyone wants to hear but I’ll hit the highlights:
What better way to support some vets who are helping themselves, and have a swag-ass ink pen? So like any true pig-humper (see infantry/grunt definition/translation below- I promise it’s not what it sounds like) would say, “Getcha some! Yeah baby getcha some!”
See you on the high ground,
Infantry to English translation for:
Infantry vernacular for “machine gunner“. “Pig”- slang for the old M-60 machine gun. “Humper”- a person who humps derived from the infantry lingo to hump or to carry.
As used: “Private Snuffy is the best pig-humper in all of 2nd Battalion!”
