    I've walked into plenty myself, back in the day

    Sorry but I don't get it I know what seals are (both the animal and the soldiers) and of course I know what marines are but...

    Problably it has to do with something well known by american people but not foreigners.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I didn't get it at first, either, Toni. You let your mind go to the traditional (drinking) "bar" jokes, but think of another definition of bar...

    You have to take it literally. Like, you might walk into a wall if you don't watch where you're going.

    Thanks Charlie, now I get it, it means a bar (rod) not a drinking place, that together with the verb "walk into" makes the double meaning. The seals and marines are there to distract attention.
