Bored Marine Video: Jousting to the death at Twentynine Palms


Today, we share with ye a noble, yet dumb pastime: Marine jousting.

The basic equation: Free time at Twentynine Palms, Calif. + creativity = A grudge match to the death. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.


Man down! Man down!

Of note, of course, is that as soon as these Marines completed a ridiculous action in the name of defeating boredom, one of them screamed, “This is going on YouTube!” That culture is exactly why we ended up starting the Bored Marine Video feature in the first place.
