How Baloo Ruined Veteran's Day

So, I've seen a couple people quoting John 15:13 in their Facebook statuses for Veteran's Day. It's a fitting quote: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."

But all I can think of, every time I see it, is that scene from Disney's Jungle Book. You know what I'm talking about, don't lie.

And then he jumps up and is all okay and everybody's happy and they sing. No solemnity whatsoever. Dammit, Baloo, you're ruining Veteran's Day for me!

Although, I don't really like being solemn anyway, so I guess I don't really mind all that much.
