    My wife and I are trying to understand how the heroic rescue of a child in Iraq fits on your list.

    “One of these things is not like the other…”?

    Maybe we are too steeped in the Texas Monthly tradition of bum steers. Everything in your list should be a nominee for bum steer. Except, of course, rescuing a child in a war zone.

    We kept trying to figure out the joke. Was it an Aggie joke? Did he make a wrong turn and expose the child to enemy fire? What did Eubank do that should be mocked and derided? Why include a heroic deed on a list of stupid behaviors?

    Ultimately, it just seems like you are mocking a hero. I can only assume that this is not your intent. It just seems so.
