Saint Mattis the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

And have a plan to kill them.

Geez, Dis, must you? Do you not recognize The Holy Mattis?

He's the one who said, "There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed." I can tell you from experience, this is the truest of truisms.

He knows his shit. Blessed be.

Thanks. Fixed. Non-Freudian. Sometimes a hand grenade is only a hand grenade.

Witty writing! Love it!

The Defense Department used to be known as the War Department. Change the name back and put Mattis in charge.

"There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed."

Sorry, St. Mattis cribbed that from Churchill.

However, he wasn't plagiarizing since among military officers (Marines and Army, anyway) it is a commonly-known aphorism of Churchill.

Not a typo. Otherwise, we couldn't say, St. Mantis pray for us!

St. James of the Ka-Bar. Sing alleluia!

I've seen him before.

Looks dishonest, not trustworthy.
