Here's a press-release headline you don't see every day: "Japanese Troops Conduct Successful Patriot Firings At Fort Bliss."
It seems to leave the impression that there's a lot of news we need to catch up on from the weekend. Like the whole Japanese Army takeover of Fort Bliss and the surrounding mopping-up of those last few resistance cells yelling "Wolverine!!"
A closer examination reveals that members of the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force (Apparent motto: "We will never, ever invade anyone again. Really.") successfully conducted a few practice tests of the Patriot missle.
Take that, Mothra!!
