    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Local pastor made up elaborate Navy SEAL tale



    In the wake of the dramatic Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden's compound earlier this month, it was perhaps to be expected that some expansive soul would step forward to claim the prestige of a fabricated tour as a SEAL for himself. Such tall tales are not uncommon, after all, amid high-profile military actions. This time the exposed fabricator was a preacher--though people who monitor this brand of public lie note that members of the clergy are often tempted into such misrepresentations.
    Alright, so far nothing out of the ordinary. Just another douche claiming to be a deadly commando. But here's what makes this one LOL-worthy:

    More curious still, the prevaricator in question seems to have lifted at least some details of his account from the 1992 Steven Seagal SEAL-themed blockbuster, "Under Siege."
    Damn, Seagal is everywhere these days.

    This immediately made me think of the Church of NO MA'AM.



    Religion as it's supposed to be.

    The original text was "...from the crappy 1992 Steven Seagal SEAL-themed movie you can rent for $.99 at Blockbuster, "Under Siege"."

    Another brave, Christian wannabe that never-was hijacking stolen honor. I used to work with a cross-humper that admitted he wished he had served when he was younger. They love hearing hair raising tales of uniformed young men and their drunken debauchery in far away lands with wild, bow-legged, exotic women.

    Good times. Praise Geebus.

    Under Siege was a blockbuster.

    'blockbuster' refers to the movie sales, not the quality of acting.

    "Under Siege" grossed over $80M domestically and over $150M combined gross domestic and international, in addition to getting decent critical reviews for an action film.

    Oh and any movie where Garey Busey and Tommy Lee Jones are bad guys? That's double barrel win.

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $83,563,139 53.4% + Foreign: $73,000,000 46.6% = Worldwide: $156,563,139
