Afghanistan and Iraq – ANZAC day 2012

Hug a digger day. Yo, what up my digger!

It is the 97th anniversary of the day ANZAC troops landed at Gallipoli, today we commemorate those who served in the First World War.

20,000 ex-servicemen are taking part in the Anzac Day march in their honour today and today every Australian salutes our armed forces with
utmost pride. It is that same pride that our armed forces carry when they serve and represent our country. Fighting for our lives and serving us all to keep our freedom. Even though in some peoples eyes our community is divided, this is the one thing that joins us all together as one. Say we get attacked from another country, your religion, race, colour creed, place of birth, stature, your bank account mean nothing as all we have are our armed forces to protect us all. When I was in the middle east as a part of Tour De Force to entertain the armed forces I saw first hand the unappreciated work that our armed forces do when abroad. Away from their loved ones, away from the creature comforts of home, living in horrible conditions and working extremely long and unexpected hours. After being there, hearing the stories and understanding why they do what they do I feel the job our troops are doing is completely called for and I have a newfound appreciation for our armed forces. Both of my grandfathers and my uncle was in the armed forces and never really talked about it a lot as I feel in their day it was not something that people respected and appreciated as much as they do now. Today is a day to stand up and say thank you to everyone who serves our country both home and abroad. Heres a couple of cool photos I took while on tour with The Angels and a stack of comedians entertaining the troops in the middle east.

Mikes Fashion weak

I knew they looked like something novel from my childhood and I figured it out. All you hipsters out there following the latest cutting edge fashion are really dressed like pappa smurf. Cool!!!!

"a hipster"

Tight pants – Check
Big Beard – Check
Beanie – Check

So now if the Pappa smurf look is in you have to go and find a date with a girl that dresses like Smurfette.
Actually come to think of it that would be like dating a midget Avatar in pokerdots. Nice, I think Im a little turned on right now.

I always wanted to grow a beard when I was young to impress the babes, but unfortunately my 17 year old beard would always look like storm clouds in a white sky or a milo face as I was once called. It just didn’t cut it. So if you’re too young to grow a pappa beard heres a cool idea that may help you. MAybe get nanna to make one for you or something. Awesome!!

Oh and heres a few beards that may not work. A trim or perhaps a complete shave.

Is that a beard or was he eating a Chihuahua?!??
That reminds me, Im hungry!
Thats all this week for Mikes Fashion Weak.
