BATFEIEIO...

During a recent conversation with friends, I mused that the BATF added "Explosives" to their portfolio in an obvious effort to make it a cool place to work. When they add race cars, steak, and bacon, I'll probably try answering phones or sweeping floors or whatever it takes to get in on the ground floor of Tech Branch. With the Lightbringer in charge, you know they'll be hiring...

"Hello! BATFERCSB! How may I help you?"

Funny, nearly the same snark was made 3 months ago.

Funny how great minds think alike.

New questions I expect to see one day on the 4473:

1. Are you REALLY the purchaser of this firearm?

2. Seriously, you're not buying it for your brother-in-law?

3. Se habla ingles?

4. Are you a college or university student?

4a. Had any dates, lately?

5. Have you ever been adjudicated mentally incompetent, convicted of a domestic violence crime, convicted of a felony, dishonorably discharged, or been considered a fugitive from justice?

5a. If you answered "No" to question 5, have you ever considered a career with the BATFE?

5a.1 The pay sucks but the fringe bennies are great! Free guns and laptops, and all the booze and smokes you want. Our annual barbeques are really fun, too! Think about it. If you file a complaint about the licensed dealer selling you this firearm we'll even throw in a signing bonus.
