News, but not the serious kind
Tanks for nothing…
“This is General Johnson, come in Alpha Dog. Are the assault vessels in place? Roger that…
“Affirmative, we’re all set for the attack. I want you to deploy all 1,000 of our T-69 amphibious tanks and begin our surprise invasion. Push ‘em into the water, boys, now!
“These amphibious assault vehicles will give us the edge we need, roaring out of the sea and onto the land before those poor bastards know what hit ‘em.
“This is our chance to teach them a lesson that… What, Lamar? No, that can’t be!
“Boys, my goofy major tells me the T-69s are NOT amphibious. Is he just jerking my chain?
“Oh. Gosh, some days NOTHING ever seems to go right!
“Lamar, there’s no need to mention this in your report. Make me a dry martini, will you?”
Officials dump a Chinese-made T-69 armored tank into the Gulf of Thailand, near the southern Narathiwat province August 9, 2010. The 25 decommissioned Thai-army tanks will form artificial corals to improve the marine ecosystems and increase fish stock in the area.
