It Really Is a Dog’s Life (if You’re in the UK Army)

A lot of people don’t like the military and do their best to find and pen disparaging articles on it. And that’s okay, it’s a free country. But every now and then you find an article like this one that really is quite disparaging. Army food is “cheaper than a dog’s dinner”. In the UK, not only do convicted prisoners (with a daily meal cost of £1.87) eat better than serving soldiers (with a daily meal allowance of £1.51), but so do the dogs (with a daily budget of more than £2.63). When they say It’s a Dog’s Life, if you happen to be a dog in the employ of the British Military, it takes on a whole new meaning.

Tip-of-the-hat to The Cynical Sorcerer, Tony Poshek, for demonstrating why there should be a little cynic in all of us!
