  5. Why wouldn't you be allowed to join the army with a lithp? Thometimeth people might take the pith but you'll have to get over that thlightly thlippery thituathion. Go for it pal, if you're willing to accept the pith taking without kicking up a thtink you'll be thquared away.

    Lisps did not stand in the way of these chaps. Watch and learn.
