What does this mean (from Full Metal Jacket)
I don't understand this term:

"Private Pyle, I WILL motivate you, if I have to short-dick every cannibal in the Congo."

What does "short-dick" mean as a verb?

Re: What does this mean (from Full Metal Jacket)
Maybe that's the point Kubrick is trying to make -- that the DI makes no sense, just as the war made no sense. Thanks for the input!

The DI WILL do every thing up to and including something that would be disgusting (taking a bite off of a cannibal's dick) to MOTIVATE Pvt. Pyle to get with the program.





DI's can ad lib anything...usually for delivery one inch from the subjects nose. It DOES get one's attention.

Gny. Sgt. Hartman, Drill Instructor: "Tonight, you pukes will sleep with your rifles. You will give your rifle a girl's name, because this is the only pussy you people are going to get. Your days of finger-banging ol' Mary Jane Rottencrotch through her pretty pink panties are over! You're married to this piece. This weapon of iron and wood. And you will be faithful!"

R. Lee Ermey I believe was an actual Gunnery Drill Instructer. Apparently when he auditioned for the role, he rattled all that speil off in front of Kubrick for 15 minutes without pause. Kubrick was so impressed, he hired him on the spot so legend has it.

I think the guy rocks, I could listen to him all day. shroom

If I have to short dick every cannibal in the congo means he's got a bigger dick than the africans and will be forced to prove it unless the private does what he's told to.

I read somewhere that the actor was allowed to ad-lib most of his stuff. Also, that Kubrick cut the filming when the DI mentioned a "reacharound" to ask what it meant. He let it stand after it was explaind to him.

A 'nam era DI is NOT going to make ANY suggestion that his mouth comes anywhere close to another dick.

Re: What does this mean (from Full Metal Jacket)
I would say "shortdick" as a verb simply means to emasculate or castrate. I never listened to the rants those guys (drill sargeants) hammered everyone with, that shit didn't bother me. So they used to try to intimidate me physically, that never worked either. I beat the crap out of a Green Beret when I was fifteen, not too much scares me.

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

It has precisely the same meaning as this quote by Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove. "I'll get them bomb doors open if I have to hairlip everyone on Bear Creek."

1. short dick
To fully or partially cut off someone's penis with a dull butter knife to get things going. Doing what it takes to light a fire under some dumb cunt's ass. Often used as a pedagogical aid on the job.

 Quoting: Kuryakin 92478


He was a Staff Sergeant (E-6) while active duty and retired at that rank. After his role in Full Metal Jacket he was given an honorary promotion to Gunnery Sergeant. During the audition he basically told Kubrick his script sucked and was not at all like the real thing. R. Lee basically re-wrote the entire script using verbiage that he had used when he was an actual Drill Instructor.
