OK, this has absolutely zip to do with weapons. It’s another t-shirt company by combat vets with a sense of humor, 5 Bravo. (Well, one of the founders was a “small arms specialist” in the Army. Does that count?
The name at first puzzled us. Why “5 Bravo?” There’s an explanation on the site, it turns out.
“Embrace The Bravo” – ETB is the slogan for 5B in a very realistic standpoint. 5B originally meant bullets, bacon, beards, babes, and booze. Now the “Embrace The Bravo” movement has become so much more.
Hmmm… sounds like they’re selling t-shirts. NTTAWWT.
Here, they bust America’s smallest Stolen Valor case.
They also enjoy trolling trolls on Facebook right back. But mostly, they sell apparel, the sort that, well, we wore in Young Grunt Days, which are long behind us.
If you’re still a Young Grunt (or young at heart) you might just want some of these t-shirts.
But we get to the site every once in a while for the laughs. Most of the humor is in the “From the Inbox” section where they conduct countertroll operations. They explain:
As you may know, at 5B, we get a lot of hate mail in our inbox. We get a lot of awesome, motivational and uplifting mail as well, but you don’t wanna look at that. This is what makes us, us. Every day we scour through hundreds of messages hunting trolls for your humor and satire loving pleasure. We are experts in the craft of “Trolling the trolls” so every chance we get, we offer you these screenshots on a silver platter for your entertainment. People always ask us “5B, why don’t you put the names in there with them?” We believe in humor, not harm. We aren’t here to be negative or make anyone’s life harder. we just want to give laughs to millions of people as we do so well. Below, we have archived and will continue to post these EPIC troll messages in our “From the Inbox” section. We love the support, the comments and shares, so keep them coming and always “Embrace The Bravo”
This one is mildly NSFW.
One more such after the jump (not before because it’s full of NSFW lingo).
No, that’s not what he’s going to do… punk.
(For the non-USians among us, JROTC is the “Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps,” which is a kind of pseudo-cadet program for kids in high school. We say “pseudo” because it doesn’t really lead to anything, but lots of kids get something good out of it. We now return you to countertroll operations in progress. -Ed.)
“It’s not faaaair!” The war cry of the precious millennial snowflake. He wouldn’t be the first guy to have his bad attitude, fed by a mistaken assumption of anonymity on the net, flipped back around on him.
Jiu-jitsu. It’s not just for the physical world any more.
