As I read your post it came to my attention that my attempts at humor were overlooked. What I wrote was supposed to be funny! I have seen those films dozens of times and eventually I noticed some rather humorous and unintentional glitches on the part of some of the participating reenactors. Also since when did the hobby of reenacting become some sort of sanctified pursuit that it is above a little ribbing? When you think about it the sight of overweight, middle-aged folks attempting to portray malnourished, exhausted, young soldiers is funny!
As for your challenge to join the reenactors?
"I reject the challenge! Cuz' reenacting is no challenge! But I will enjoy beating up on it some more!"
"Hey Marlita! Hey Marlita! Why don't you come over here and get with a REAL hobby!"
"Shut up, old reenactor! You know you are the one who has been ducking me!"
What is my prediction for fat reenactors attempting to march a mile of open ground in July heat?
You wanted Mr. T! You got him! (Oh by the way, the above are jokes courtesy of the REAL Mr. T's, overlooked by the Academy, performance in the classic Rocky III.)
