Mr. Rogers aka Rambo

December 10th, 2011

Did you know that, back in the 90's, rumors circulated that Mr. Rogers had been a Marine sniper in Vietnam?

I find it utterly ridiculous that someone started that rumor. I find it utterly hilarious that the rumor stuck around

I'd like to have grown up seeing a Mr. Rogers/Rambo dude wearing both a zip-up cardigan and a bandolier of M14 ammunition. "Hi kids," he'd have said in his second career as a children's television host, "let's talk about our first day at school. It's a lot like my first 250 meter kill during the Tet Offensive."
