Iraqi Detainees Have a New Weapon - Favre

A group of Iraqi detainees in a Wisconsin National Guard Camp in Iraq have discovered a new way to get under the skin of those holding them: Brett Favre. Yep, the Brett Favre.
 
"They know Favre by name," said First Lieutenant Tim Boehnen, who is from New Richmond, Wis. 
"One of the big words they know now is shenanigan. They'll constantly talk about 'Favre shenanigans,' 'He's so good for the Vikings,' and 'The Packers have got to really feel bad about that one.' "
You've got to hand it to the detainees, it's a pretty clever way to make fun of the troops. The most annoyed soldiers are probably the ones who aren't even Packers fans, but are simply tired of hearing people talk about Brett Favre.
