"Bzzz Bzzz"

"Who's there?"

"Malaria."

"Malaria who?"

"Mal-Aryan world domination!"

Well I guess that'd add a whole new meaning to "Buzz bomb"....

I thought we weren't supposed to mention the war.

/I mentioned it once but I think I got away with it.

You know, the more I hear about these guys the less I am inclined to think they are nice.

The US weaponized bats and pigeons . The Russians weaponized dogs.

WWII POW camps banned knitted sweaters from being delivered to POWs for fear that code would be stitched into the garment. The list of tiny, whacky, individually insignificant actions all sides did in the war to increase their odds of victory is very long.

Weaponized bats would have eaten the weaponized skeeters.

An OSS agent developed a set of tools, including a silk map and money, that were hidden inside Monopoly games distributed to US POWs in Germany.  Supposedly, several hundred POWs used the tools to escape and return to England.  The story was suppressed into the late 50s - early 60s.

BTW, Japan weaponized a whole range of bacterial and other diseases, then released them in occupied China.  Weaponized anthrax is still a problem there.
