Army Successfully Tests F-Bomb

The F-Bomb has been successfully tested.

The Army announced today that the first successful F-Bomb test has taken place in the New Mexico desert. The F-Bomb – which is not nuclear but still produces a mushroom cloud – was begun after the above ground testing ban treaty in the 1960’s. “There was a lot of research left undone.” according to Dr. Renaldo Hererra, chief of Munitions Linguistics at Los Alamos. “We went straight from the A-Bomb to the H-Bomb, omitting everything in between. The B project showed promise, but C through E were complete failures. It’s good to finally have some success.”

Having grown up around the military and served myself, I had inklings that this one has been in the works for some time.

    Since a threat to use a nuclear bomb would be “We’re gonna nuke you”, would a threat to use this bomb be “We’re gonna F… you”?

    That’s just sad. F—— sad.

    Hey, I know a guy who worked on the D, E, and F projects. He said F is explosive enough, but it’s too bulky. What they really need is something as light as, say, a string of thread. He says he’s trying to get himself assigned to the G-string project.

    Gee; and I thought A stood for ATOM, and H stood for Hydrogen. I didn’t know Ol’ Henry Ford ran the program![lol]

    Careful Pat …I think George Carlin has a patent on that line. That’s one of his earliest bits, circa 1971.

    Bithead,

    Really!? I know of George Carlin, in fact I may have seen one of his shows on TV, but I didn’t know that he said something of this nature. I guess great minds think alike, huh?

    had to use when they were orderd to unload their
    weapons?

    Lets hope they dont combine this research with that of the Gay bomb…if that happens everyone will be screwed….

    I thought is a post by Ann Coulter about the gay bomb.
