Mr. President, here’s a brilliant idea. Why don’t we combine your plans for the border moat and your plans for the Space Force and just launch snakes and alligators into space?
Designing spacesuits for the snakes would be a challenge — as would the question of how they would hold their laser guns. But if we pulled it off, we could call it the Ssssssspace Force.
Locating the snakes to recruit would be easy. Just look at any Republican Congressman still supporting you.
In a surprise press conference, President Trump unveiled its mission statement:
- Man the air.
- Ram the ramparts.
- Take over airports.
- Do everything they have to do.
I just started the Twitter hashtag #spaceforceselfies to troll Donald Trump’s planned “Space Force.” Just take a shot of yourself in any sci-fi getup to parody an eager recruit. You get extra points if you work in a gag directly at the president’s expense within the photo.
This could be a lot of fun if it gains traction among the cosplayer crowd. I’d go first, but I haven’t the slightest idea how to make a costume.
I’d love to figure out a way to make a convincing costume for the Mobile Infantry depicted in Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers.” This … this might actually just be an elaborate excuse for me to dress up as “Starship Troopers.”
