News, but not the serious kind
Life imitates art, over and over…
Blog Guy, following up on your post about the motorcycle attack machine, may we turn to China’s army?
Your sources are very good. Indeed, there are about six bullets left in all of China, so military training classes have been overhauled.
For instance, in one course the recruits are shown a pirated copy of Edvard Munch’s famous work, “The Scream.” The idea is if they can irritate the enemy enough, they’ll just go home.
Awesome! What else?
Yet another new tactic is training infantry troops to bark like schnauzers at attackers, and go for their throats if necessary. For training, they use a life-size cutout of Michael Vick.
Interesting. It’s a shame they can’t get the real Vick.
Shush! Don’t say it out loud, or you’ll spoil my recent birthday wish!
“The Scream,” by Edvard Munch.
