I was playing Army-Men last week, having as delightful a time as one can have when pretending small, green men are alive and hostile towards one another. I was impressed with the composure of the generals as they boldly directed their troops, and at the flag bearers who held strong while waving their colors (green and green, from both sides) proudly. The bravery of the front line soldiers was commendable and the mortar soldiers fired away as if they their lives depended on it- and really, their lives did depend on it.
But then I saw a soldier that really addled me. While all the comrades surrounding him were valiantly defending their rights and freedoms, this soldier was looking for loose change! He had his nifty little metal detector and was vigilantly perusing the dirty battlefield for gold, silver, nickle, or whatever else might elicit monetary value. I was supremely offended at his disrespect for his fellow soldiers fighting so courageously while he tried to make some extra money. I made sure that he was eliminated fairly quickly by the opponents. He was taken out by a bazooka, in fact. I guess all I'm saying is that if you are called to go to war, may you be blessed, and please don't go out trying to make some extra money from extra change. That's just not cool.
