This one is slightly MRE related. Just saw this on the interwebs from last year apparently. It's on the internet so it has to be true. I don't think this technique is in the army handbook or in the Natick SOPs.

After grabbing the spoon, he began stabbing the enemy in the neck until he was dead.
Gnarly. What I wanna know is, was he using the scoop or the end of the handle? :?: :?:

That one's been going around for years, you'll find it popping up every now and then without any "actionable" info.

I'm not surprised. It sounds very much like one of those "guess what I just heard" stories. I still thought it a bit too "out there" to not share with the forum.
