There's so much going on in this recent photograph above, published on the Defense Department's official website.

The official caption explains that a U.S. Marine from Charlie Co., 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment was helping others get through a barbed wire obstacle while training in Latvia.

But what I see is a U.S. Marine with a gigantic hole in his cammie bottoms — which rip so freaking much they should just issue them that way — screaming out "Please caption what I'm saying right now!" while the Norwegian is seen mean-mugging the camera man.

It's just... beautiful.
