Silly String in Iraq

Maybe showering 80s kids with all those toys worked out well after all. Last year, they used remote controls from toy cars to prematurely trigger IEDs; now it seems Silly String (which even I let my kids play with) has a military use.

No word yet on whether Raytheon is tendering an offer for Toys [Russian vowel yoo] Us.

Awesome! Now the Silly String cartel can make millions of dollars! Purchased at Spencers, a can costs $3.99. However, the Pentagon can procure it for the reasonable price of $399 per can! If it saves one life, it's more than worth it.

Image Silly String canons mounted on Humvees or police vehicles. Much better than water canons.
