When asked why he joined the army, a soldier replied with this hilarious joke [Image]

Okay, before everyone gets all anti-war or pro-armed-forces on me, let me say this isn’t a post about war or soldiers or fighting. This is a post about a joke. A joke written by a new recruit to the army (presumably US Army). So put your bickering aside and laugh it up.

There is a Basic Training Sergeant out there somewhere (don’t know who he is — he posted randomly to Imgur) that asks all his new recruits to write him a short letter (one or two paragraphs) explaining why they (the recruits) joined the army. One of this recruits replied with the following (and be sure to read through the end — the joke at the end is hilarious); check it out:


“Door… Mordor… Gondor.” ROFLMAO!

    @AFPhys: The same thing happened to me. When I first read it, it passed over my head. I read it again and started bawling.
    @Johann: Glad you enjoyed it!

    I have to admit that I had to think twice about the joke before getting it. That was good. Did a true LOL when I did.

    @vandamme: We can only hope he wrote the letter in sarcasm.
    @Strahd: Mordor and Gondor are places in Lord of the Rings. The joke is a play on words, i.e “more door, “gone door”
