A group of male German soldiers are experiencing an extremely bizarre health ailment – growing unexpected new body parts.

The highly ranked military guards battalion, known for performing drill demonstrations at major events, are growing breasts on just one side of their bodies, Medical Daily reported.

The soldiers – part of the Wachbataillon unit – are suffering from a condition called one-sided gynecomastia, and it’s a result of how the soldiers are performing their drills. Seventy-four percent of the soldiers have been diagnosed with gynecomastia, after complaining of growths on the left side of their bodies.

Makes you wonder what body parts our women in combat will grow?

Yea, my college had that. Seems that the male ‘cheerleaders’ were kind of losing their manliness. Can’t say they didn’t deserve it. If you want to ‘be on the field’ as a guy, try out for the football team - don’t wimp out.

(and yes, I do respect the fact that male ballet dancers can floor me with their pinkies, but that doesn’t make them any less gay)

Do they also spend a lot of time alone locked in the latrine?

Could also be the result of BPA toxic effects as this symptom is one known result.

The real cause is that German soldiers have nothing better to do nowadays than march around in circles; hence, they become girly men. Take a look at their rifles. M1 Garands. That’s the rifle our soldiers used during WWII. Their use of M1 rifles practically shouts their frustration. Why, even the French have Mali.

According to a medical report, the soldiers use their rifles to repeatedly slap the left side of their chests – which stimulates hormones on that side of the body. As a result, breasts start to grow only on their left side.

Yeah, the M1 is an older style weapon from a by gone era but by God, it still packs one hell of a punch. It’s big brother, the M14 is still in use.

The kind of insecurity underlying your comments of what athletic endeavour is the barometer of proper manliness and what is not has all but become a relic.

No doubt, if you’re a military sniper, you want the greater umph of an actual rifle, whether the M1 or the M14. But, if you’re a ceremonial unit, your choice of the M1 is predicated on it not having an external magazine.

What the hell does that mean? Are you an Literature major or some other sick type of person?

Oh, boy, don’t tell Obamugabe. I am sure the Dear Leader would love to see our troops develop this condition.

I well understand how the M1 is suited to ceremonial presentations. Minus the external magazine the M1 is superbly balanced and simply dazzles when used by The Marine Corps Silent Drill Team(watching them gives me the chills) and the drill teams of the other services. And when carried in color guard formations and other ceremonial exhibitions the rifle just blends so naturally to the human form. I fired one once when I was sixteen. Forty years later I can still feel the kick from thing! I knew a WW2 vet who served in the 9th. Infantry Division, first in North Africa, Italy and later on in Europe. He told me used a Springfield .03. He swore by it.

That would make sense. Or maybe he was one of those football-player wannabe’s, who just hit hard enough to out on the field - but still wanted to be with the hunks, so he decided to be a male ‘cheerleader’.

We know what they won’t grow, which is one of the major concerns...
