    Eh, I liked his PSA in “The Thing” (1982) better.

    Anybody else feel like most of VLMS is cool but not cool enough to wear on kit in public?

    Who buys this? (I know no one wears this on their kit, right? Right?)

    Seriously, who buys this and other ridiculous patches? It’s a meme from over 10 years ago that is unrelated to the military or tactical community.

      I have a friend who buys them and just puts them on his shelf. Never has been able to give any proper reasoning why he does that, though. At least he agrees that wearing them in the public would be poor taste at best.
      I guess it’s just another silly hobby.

      I don’t get it either, but there must be a market.

      My assumption is just a niche industry of patch collectors more reflective of “Hot Topic” than “Magpul”.

    • PNWTO says:

      I can easily see a NCO “awarding” this patch to a fatbody PT failure. Ten years ago I would have said I can see a Captain giving said award, but times are changing.

  3. If wearing kit in public is cool…consider me Miles Davis.

    On a serious note -I really appreciate that comment and take it all in. Creativity ebbs and flows. -YR

    Should make one look like a Mountain Dew can, but change the name (using the same font) to “Weaponized Diabeetus.”
