My favorite one I have been hearing on the radio lately is "(company name) is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer"


seems to negate each other to me...

um...there's a very good chance SWMBO wrote those rules. Her firm represents radio/tv stations across the country and one of her numerous responsibilities is reviewing and editing contest rules. What station was it for?

To load the clip without first locking the bolt could result in the bolt inadvertently expending a round, which could be lethal.'

From Wikipedia
I recall being instructed at Fort McClellan "When I give the command to 'lock and load' you will place a magazine in the magazine well, locking it into place. Then you will pull the charging handle fully to the rear and release, loading your weapon. "
