A New Definition for Stupid

Overheard in the White House Military Office:

We need some new photos. So let’s send a 747 up to New York City, let it swoop around the city, real low. Oh, and we’ll give it an escort of two F-16 fighters, so that nobody gets alarmed. We’ll keep the mission classified, so nobody will even know it’s happening…right?

While we’re at it, let’s shoot off a huge fireworks display from atop a few skyscrapers. That’ll be cool.

Let’s do it without telling President Obama. Keep it a surprise. I’m sure he’ll love it.

I can imagine the 747 pilot, plus the F-16 pilots, all thinking to themselves, “This is a bad, very bad idea.”
