The Marine Corps‘ search for a new squad automatic weapon (SAW) may have ended with Heckler and Koch, but that doesn’t mean the arms manufacturer was going to pull any punches when it came to ribbing the branch about some common Marine stereotypes. In a Facebook post published by H&K earlier this week, the company referred to Marines as “crayon eaters” and asked that the M27s’ new owners “treat them nice,” even though they designed the M249 SAW’s replacement to be “Marine proof.”

The jokes didn’t end there, however, with H&K jumping in on the comments section to deliver more quips about the Marines, before the poster (who identified herself as “social media girl”) announced that she was probably going to get taken to task for the rash of jokes.
