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.
