Now they’re just getting insane

Pentagon develops brain implants to turn sharks into military spies

Well, they’re trying to. It won’t work. Rational folks might say, hey, let’s use *people* as spies. But the US military seems determined to win by using super duper high-tech stuff that no one else has. This is what they thought in Vietnam, that they could win via bombing. Didn’t work. They thought they’d win in Iraq too, and charged in wearing 50 pounds of high-tech gear in 110 degree heat. That didn’t work either.

“A fool who persists in his folly will soon become wise” isn’t always true, is it?

    Will the sharks be Christian or Islamic?

    No worries. Sharks will be extinct soon.

    Should we inform the secret service?

    The sharks are Christian, as a Pentagon spokesperson said they were “an urgently needed asset in the global fight against Islamaofascist whales threatening the oceans.”

    As an atheist I resent all those beautiful and varied sharks all being labelled Christian. I’m sure there are some free thinking ones among them.
