Tank Man

Twenty-five years ago today, “Tank Man” made his immortal stand in Tiananmen Square. The Chinese Communist government panicked. They were sure that their tankers would grease their treads with the guts of ordinary people who might stand up to them. Training now attempts to thwart that sort of reaction to a man with courage.

Big Jim

Will you send former Director Comey soap-on-a-rope when he goes to the big house?

Ok, before all of you skeptics attack me for being a Polyanna, it could happen. Yeah, I know that maybe pigs will fly.

I'm simply testing the depth of your compassion. Would you send him soap-on-a-rope or would you send him slick soap that he's sure to drop in the communal prison shower?

Those Tricky Russians

I've often thought that the Russians were on the track by training svelte supermodels to trap GI's into giving up the nation's secrets. Sweathogs working as waitresses always made more sense to me.
MOSCOW – The Russian Federation intelligence “sparrow” school has launched a new program to train fat, tattooed women to seduce lower enlisted analysts, sources confirmed today. 
“For decades, we’ve trained elegant, sensual, intelligent women to lure high-level officers and diplomats into compromising ‘honeypot’ traps,” said Col. Vladimir Nutskoff. “As we tried to expand the program to send ballerinas and rocket scientists to seduce E-6 imagery analysts, we found that they couldn’t make eye contact with our agents. The system had to change.” 
SVR agent Natalia Korchova has been successfully working a source since she gained twenty-five pounds, had a dolphin tattooed on her ankle, and adopted a cover as part time nursing student at Cochise College who waitresses at Texas Roadhouse on Military Mondays, sources confirmed. 
In another successful recruitment, SVR agent Anya Egoranova, bought glasses and dyed a purple streak into her hair. She met her targets at The Android’s Dungeon Magic Lair, a Dungeons and Dragons meet-up and board games store near Fort Huachuca. At least four analysts are giving her classified documents, but none figured out how to kiss her.
