We’re expanding our Morale Patch offerings with two new designs based off of some sayings we had in the Navy that we felt needed to be turned into patches.
With the help of our artist extraordinaire Matt Gambrell, we commissioned Baboon Ass and Combat Hot Air Balloon Pilot.
You’re probably wondering what these terms mean, so allow us to explain.
The term Baboon Ass is a Navy term for the red, swollen ass you get during a long transition on a Zodiac F470 bouncing off the tubes. The Z-Bird is a truly unforgiving creature and a long inflatable boat ride can leave you feeling it for days!
We felt that Matt truly captured the essence of the term with the designs to the right. Help us decide which one to produce by voting in the poll below. (click image to enlarge)
Combat Hot Air Balloon Pilot
This was something we used to tell people when a simple “I’m in the Navy” didn’t suffice upon being asked what we did. We had a pretty elaborate explanation put together where we’d talk about new nano-technology in basket weaving and how we were experimenting with a new sky coloration to seemingly disappear until we were right on top of the enemy.
We’d talk about how one of us was the 50 gunner and how there was nothing like that 5o rockin’ on the basket mount. Hey, it was either that or you’d tell someone you drove the Zipper on the Coronado Bridge if you didn’t want to bring up the military at all.
Matt really hit this one out of the park and we’re having trouble deciding which one we like! Help us decide which one to produce by voting in the poll below. (click image to enlarge)
