Coalition Forces Launch Naughtiest Offensive Yet In Afghanistan
So, Pentagon, Defense Department and, well, Canada: Are you trying to make us giggle at the war in Afghanistan? Really? You want Americans to have to stifle laughter at the thought of our troops and allies finally securing the lawless southern regions? Because you just named your offensive "Operation Mount and Thrust," and there's no way there wasn't someone out there in Crystal City with a mind as immature as ours to tell you what you were doing before you got the press releases and commemorative t-shirts printed up.
Coalition spokesperson Benny Hill could not be reached for comment.
