News, but not the serious kind
Looks like that one passed the test!
Sarge, look sharp. I’ve got a job for you.
Sure thing, Captain, Sir!
Can you take care of that? And start with that big anti-aircraft gun over there!
Jeez, Sir, I can only think of one way to “test” an anti-aircraft gun….
Well, then it’s a good thing we’re close to a civilian airport, right? Who’s your best man for the job, Sarge?
That would be Hookah Joe. You give him a comfy chair and his water pipe, and he’ll test those weapons all day long.
Relax, Captain, we’ve got 10 minutes before the next scheduled departure!
Say, Sarge, what’s he got in that big blue container, anyway?
Could be water, could be gasoline. Ya never know, with Hookah Joe….
