    Classic “Broadside” humor from one of the best military cartoonists, Jeff Bacon.

    For my Coast Guard brethren:

    When neither one of you can figure out how to turn that boat around or how to find the shore, feel free to call on a Kings Pointer for some actual navigation and engine room expertise...

    But all I can see on my iPhone in your post is this:
    :popcorn1:

    Though I have never seen your popcorn, I will cheerfully cede the bragging rights.

    There are some anomalies in what emojis look like, must be device-dependent. I put the description in mine because I wasn’t sure what it might look like to others and possibly be an oops.

    Kings Point? What's that? Isn't that the pub at the end of the pier at Portsmouth.

    Extra credit question: How many U.S. federal service academies are there?

    There are technically quite a few "federal service academies"

    USAFA, USCGA, USMA, USMMA, & USNA make up the first five.

    Then there are;

    Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy
    Foreign Service Institute
    National Defense University

    National Fire Academy
    U.S. National Mine Health and Safety Academy
    Uniform Services University of the Health Sciences
