Does this level 20 Paladin work in the Pentagon?
Somewhere in the E-Ring of the Pentagon someone comes up with macho names for military operations. Like Operation Anaconda, Mountain Resolve and Slipper.
Wait a minute. Operation Slipper? That's about as manly as My Little Pony. How did that get past our linguistic warriors? Oh, I see, that was an Australian op. So that explains why it wasn't all George Bush strutty and muy macho.
But the one we've got now is the macho-ist op ever. So tanked on testosterone that it sounds like it was written by a 13-year-old who wet dreams over vorpal swords and +4 full plate mail.*
It's called Operation: Arrowhead Ripper.
Look out! Shock and Awe! Are the Hajjis scared yet?
Oh, and as a little aside, General David Petraeus told Fox News this morning that we'll probably have to be in Iraq for another nine or ten years.
Just thought you'd like to know in case you've got a little one hanging around the house. You might want to start teaching him Arabic now.
File this one under: Gee, thanks, President Bush! You're the Swellest President Ever!
