Battleship

A favorite board game while growing up was Battleship.  In fact, my children have the game, and I still love to SINK THEIR STINKIN’ BATTLESHIP.  Especially the 2-holers.

I have a take no prisoners mentality when game playing.

When I came across this news story this weekend, I couldn’t help but do a one-legged happy dance.  Okay, 2 crutches, one leg.

Apparently, a skiff carrying 6 suspected pirates fired upon the U.S.S. Ashland 330 nautical miles off the coast of Dijibouti.  The U.S.S. Ashland fired back.  And sunk that 2-holer.

In the interest of humanity, I will add that the U.S.S. Ashland sent a rescue boat for the 6 crispy intrepid pirates and rendered medical care.  But really, you just can’t fix stupid.

I’m thinking that the U.S.S. Ashland won that game handily.
