He Got the Nod


Have you ever heard of someone “getting the nod” for doing something outstanding?  In this case, John Coleman of Cleveland, Ohio got just the opposite for his nod.  You see, Coleman’s pipe and drum band performed in President Obama’s inauguration.  Apparently, Coleman was a little too eager to please the new President.  As they passed by Obama, he nodded and gave a small wave.  Coleman says that Obama smiled and waved and that he was simply returning the courtesy.

For his over-zealousness, Coleman has been suspended from the marching band for six months.  The band leader says that Coleman violated proper decorum required in a military parade.

Ummm…Let me get this straight.  A six-month suspension for a nodding of the head and a slight wave?  Okay.  I can understand some minor punishment for violating the proper decorum, especially considering it’s the military.  How about just doing what they did in the old movies and make him do something like digging out a latrine or peeling a few hundred potatoes?

Oh well…Maybe he can make some money posing for a bobblehead doll or something like that.

If you care to see the video of this horrible offense, you can click here…Be aware that it’s not for the faint of heart.
