“All your buddies are gonna rip you a little bit,” Ripley said. “It’s all in good fun, and there were some pretty funny comments that got thrown around the ol’ e-mail chain from different buddies.”
I will offer that I was the recipient of one of the e-mails that went around the USAF (yes, the entire USAF). I gave some consideration to simply copying it into this post, but due to language and OPSEC considerations, I decided not to. Suffice it for me to summarize that "Ripped" would be putting it mildly; sort of like saying "Jeffrey Dahmer hurt some people." In any case, I didn’t forward the e-mail, so it doesn’t really make sense to post it here, either.
But then, at the beginning of that e-mail train, he had asked a bunch of guys to vote for him in whatever contest it was in a womens‘ magazine!
I’ll leave the commentary to you. . . .
