What's a Snafu?
The saying was originated by a couple of Army Signal Men. It became the enlisted men's recognized state of the military at the time, "Situation Normal, All Fouled Up!"

Snafu is now used to indicate any foul up.


The Christmas Gift

A young man wished to purchase a present for his girlfriend and, after careful consideration he decided on a pair of gloves. Accompanied by his sweetheart's sister, he went to a department store and bought a pair of white gloves. The sister purchased a pair of panties for herself. As the store clerk wrapped the items they got mixed up. The sister got the gloves and the panties went into the package meant for the girlfriend. Without checking the contents, the young man sealed the package and sent it to his sweetheart with this note:

My Love,
Since I can't be with you on Christmas I'm sending this little gift to show my affection for you. I chose these because I noticed that you are not in the habit of wearing any when you go out in the evenings. If it had not been for your younger sister, I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but she wears the short ones that are easy to remove and I found I liked them better. These are a delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me a pair that she had been wearing for three weeks and they were hardly soiled. I had the sales girl try them on and she really looked great. I wish I could put them on for you the first time. No doubt other men's hands will come in contact with them before I have a chance to see you again. When you take them off, blow in them before putting them away as they will naturally be a little damp from wearing. Be sure to keep them on when you clean them or they might shrink. I hope you will like them and wear them for me on Friday night.

All my love,

P.S. Just think of how many times I will kiss them during the coming year. Also, the latest style is to wear them folded down with the fur showing.

Christmas Eve At The Pearly Gates

One Christmas Eve, three young men die and approach the Pearly Gates. St. Peter meets them and tells them that since it's Christmas Eve he is too busy to process them in the regular way but that he will let them through the Gates if each can come up with something related to Christmas. The first guy takes out his car keys and shakes them, making a jingling sound. St. Peter asks what that has to do with Christmas. The guy says that it represents the Bells of Christmas. St. Peter lets him in. The second man takes out a little pocket flashlight on a chain, and turns it on. St. Peter asks what that has to do with Christmas and the man says that it represents the Star of Bethlehem. St. Peter smiles and lets him in. The third young man is kind of nervous because he has no keys or flashlight. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out what he finds, a pair of women's panties. St Peter asks him what he thinks those could possibly have to do with Christmas. "Well," the young man says: "They're Carol's".

Merry Christmas Everyone
I hope you don't have any SNAFUs



The true story of the origin of the word SNAFU

In 1941, Don Taylor and his buddy Johnny Paup of the Army Signal Corps were making words out of five-letter code groups. SNAFU was one of those groups. The rest is history... (click here)
