OMG there's a lot of memes on this going way back.
Am I pre-empting the Friday thread again by posting this music video?

That was so great! -- needs a Showa Era version though. (War of the Planets; the Mysterians; Godzilla vs Monster X; Destroy All Monsters)

This has to be the dumbest shit I've ever seen. How many people are truly suffering in our country and this hillbilly redneck wants to make sure the Skrulls or the Kree never invade our country. Jesus H Joseph and Mary....the US gov't (yes, a slight generalization) has to be the biggest fucking cesspool on this planet.

Word.  I do disagree about him being a hillbilly redneck as those kinds of folks I can deal with (as they do comprise most of my family).  More like, "bloviating, Yankee carpetbagger," in my eyes.

I'm thinking we can solve this problem if we just build, 'The Wall'. And make it really, really tall.

No. We need "The Roof".

And then what about the underground aliens? How you gonna stop them when they tunnel up from their secret base under Mt. Rushmore? OH! Wait, you're all not supposed to know about that.  #:-)   Quick, everybody pretend we're still talking about the Space Force.

Don't be foolish.  There are no underground aliens.  How can there be when the earth is flat?

And how long into the procurement&production phase will we go before someone points out that the designers forgot to include "The Bathroom"?

I would like to plead a case for a special steel clad 15 ft. barrier fenced 'Mother-In-Law' room if I may. Thank you.  <:-)

Gotta look up that gobblygook in the middle of Chief's rank patch there.

All we need now is that huge, 2 person Air Force sword to make in to the pic for maximum cringe.
