Frankly, I welcome pretty much any opportunity to spread awareness of our activities, whether presented seriously or humourously, as long as it does not portray us in a specifically unfavourable light. Mercer has appeal to a wider and younger audience, just the demographic that might include exactly the type of recruits ALL our units sorely need to guarantee we will still have an 1812 community in ten years' time.
That's MY tuppence worth...
