A week from today will be the 236th birthday
of that “Always Faithful,” smallest service in
the Defense Department — the U.S. Marine Corps.
“Semper Fidelis” is admittedly a great old motto;
but if the Leathernecks ever change
their minds, we have a few suggestions.

The Top 10 New Marine Corps Mottos

10> Semper Fee Fi Fo Fum

9> We Make SEAL Team Six Look Like Pussies

8> Semper Distempered

7> We Kick Ass with Our Shoes of Triple-E

6> Simmer Fidelis (Boil, You Watchstanders)

5> Better than Juvie

4> Semper FIDO

3> Ballast with a Mission

2> Temper Fidelis (Always Pissed)

and the Number 1 New Marine Corps Mottos…
1> Making the Department of the Navy Tougher Since 1834
