Not That There's Anything Wrong With That

A persistent rumor reported in Ananova (all leads seem to point back to The Sunshine Project) claims that in 1994, Wright Laboratory proposed several non-lethal military agents including a "Gay Bomb". The proposal suggested creating a weapon that would sow confusion amongst enemy ranks by using aphrodisiacs to make enemy troops go into rut and begin passionately schtupping each other. It would give a whole new meaning to the phrase, "I've got your back, buddy".

After the initial frenzy, which would certainly disrupt military operations, the Dread Pundit Bluto posits that the resulting feelings of awkwardness would further impair organizational efficiency.

The Sunshine Project consists of three activists: a German, an American, and a Columbian, who claim to use the Freedom of Information Act to expose chemical and biological weapons research. Their physical evidence for the Gay Bomb is an Adobe Acrobat file that really could be anything - there are no identifying marks on the papers, which look to have been fed through a copier thirty or forty times, sideways.

The Dread Pundit Bluto smells a hoax.
