Be Alert, Not Alarmed


Please everyone stay calm. I have called this press conference because there is some urgent news. As you all know, this is what a nuclear silo in the middle of launching ICBMs looks like.

We’ve been examining maps and found this. Yes, it’s what we’ve feared. It’s an active silo preparing to launch.

Many of you hoped this day would never come. I assure you that counter measures have been initiated. You should send your loved ones to small inland cities. Our simulations show that these will take the least damage during the oncoming war. I hope you all are prepared and have appropriately stocked shelters.

Some of you have asked about getting help from other nations. To those people I quote the book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Pirates: “The enemy of my enemy is my enemy’s enemy. No more, no less.”

There’s time for one last question, you at the back. What’s that? Ah, no, I don’t think they’re too bouncy. There’s no such thing.

  1. That is awesome. I particularly like how someone in that forum helpfully points out that silos don’t really look like that.

    I think there might be such a thing as too bouncy. Some of those look like they’re filled with helium, or perhaps psychotic flies that bounce around randomly at the first hint of movement. One can’t help but admire the independent jiggle, but I think they may have gone too far in the interests of showing it off. And, the hair looks crummy.

  2. They’ve used strips for the hair which would be fine if the collision detection worked.

    Maybe they’re on the moon. Moon boobs.

  3. Too bouncy?
