A soldier who has recently been promoted to corporal is taken to a bar by his sergeant.
The sergeant orders ten shots of tequila.
The corporal is about to order the same, when the sergeant says, “Are you sure about that?”
“Of course I’m sure!” replies the corporal. “I am no longer a private. I am a corporal now!”
So the sergeant lets him order ten shots of tequila.
Afterwards, the two men walk drunk out of the bar and run into two call girls, a blonde and a brunette.
“Hey!” say the call girls. “Wanna have a good time?”
“I would!” says the sergeant. “Me too!” says the corporal.
“Are you sure about that?” the sergeant asks again.
“Of course I’m sure!” replies the corporal.
“I am no longer a private. I am a corporal now!”
So the sergeant takes the blonde and the corporal takes the brunette.
“I must warn you,” says the brunette, “I have the clap.”
Neither of the two soldiers know what “the clap” is, so the sergeant looks it up in his pocket dictionary.
“It’s safe,” he tells the corporal.
A week later, the sergeant visits the corporal in the hospital.
“Why did you tell me it was safe?” asks the corporal.”
The dictionary told me the clap only affects the privates,” replies the sergeant, “and you are a corporal now.”
