Man On Fire: SmackLT: Yeah, it SOUNDS like lighthearted boost for morale, until you consider the reality that this could ignite a baking goods cold war. Now that we've unveiled a cupcake tank, do you think those filthy ruskies are gonna sit back? Hell no, they've probably already got a brownie-based fighter jet in production as we speak. Then, how long will it be before the middle east obtains yellow cake?

WE CANNOT ALLOW A CUPCAKE GAP

bdub77: In before people complain about taxpayer money. This is a fun story, a quick boost for morale, wasn't all that expensive when you compare it to other things the army spends on. Like that, for example, a single drone missile costs $70000.

Very cool stuff.

I guess that's the perfect thing for tankers. 19K isn't just their MOS, it's how many calories they consume per day.

You really want to feed the homeless? Here's a great idea!

Steal a cupcake, box of donuts, McDonalds hamburgers, whatever, from the most obese person you see and run for it. Give it to the nearest bum on the street corner.

1. The hungry homeless will get to eat
2. Fatty McLardass gets some exercise if they chase you (and they'll try)
3. YOU get some exercise

Everyone should do their part to feed the homeless and fight obesity. Why, I stole two boxes of Dunkin Donuts Munchkins from a 350 lb whaleasaurus just last week. She chased me for 40 whole feet!

intelligent comment below: common sense is an oxymoron: It's idealistic, not-of-this-world statements like this that make liberals look silly. Not that the military isn't misused, but to equate a celebration of the Army's birthday with "worshiping death and destruction" is a crime against logic.

/providing for the common defense is cool
//providing for the petrochemical industry, not so much


The military is the enforcement arm of the corporate controlled world that requires never ending war. If you want to worship the Empire, the Emperor, and Darth Vader that's your problem, but don't pretend the military has provided for the "common defense" of anything.


Has any culture, anywhere, at any time, survived without the ability to defend itself? And are you seriously suggesting that the US (or any other country) has never, in its history, faced a real and imminent threat which was successfully repelled through military force?

You can't spell "pacifist" without F-I-S-T.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.




How poetic. Now give your money, that sandwich you are eating, and your clothes before I shoot your ass!

Cup-a-tank, cup-a-tank, army man.
Bake me a tank as fast as you can;
Cover it with cupcakes both brown and green,
Load it with more cupcakes, and shoot 'em at me.
