DoD on Avian Flu: We Guess The Best Defense is NOT a Great Offense
A little, thoroughly vaccinated birdie told us today that buried deep within the Department of Defense Appropriations Bill -- which is otherwise noteworthy for the steps taken to fund avian flu preparedness -- is some language that piques curiosity even as it strongly claims to be oh, ho, apropos of nothing.
Does not include any language nor was any language ever being considered related to cockfighting or animal fighting
What? Ohhh, nooooo. No one's been talking about cockfighting around here! Why are you bringing it up?
So, rest assured America, no chickens will be fighting on the Department of Defense's watch. They'll just be wearing flightsuits.— DCEIVER
