Half-naked young navymen

That title got your attention, didn't it? File this one under 'Photos that must be seen to be believed' and 'The jokes, they write themselves':


Annapolis Naval Academy freshmen make a human wall to climb the Herndon Monument, which is covered with lard, on May 23, 2011 in Annapolis, Maryland. Each year the freshman class, known as 'Plebes,' climb the monument at the U.S. Naval Academy to retrieve the Plebian Sailor's hat and replace it with an officer's hat. The tradition is one step in marking the end of wearing freshman headgear and moving up to headgear more like a U.S. Naval officer. (Getty Images/Mark Wilson)
