This Just in!!!!!!!

July 4

The North Koreans have test fired three missiles into the Sea of Japan, two Scuds and a Taepodong . The Taepodong is reported to have a range of more than 9,000 miles. It exploded after 30 to 45 seconds of flight. The news departments at local country music stations have been flooded with calls asking if the Taepodong has any connection to the Honky Tonk Badonkadonk. Local newspaper writers are thrilled that Taepodong is easier to spell than badonk........

This brings back memories of an incident during Desert Storm. A video store opened in Gibsonville, about twenty miles from Greensboro. They had a big searchlight lighting up the sky that night. The bad news was that the cloud cover was pretty low that night and the light reflecting off the clouds created quite a sight in the night skies over Greensboro. Local news outlets were flooded with calls from folks asking if we were under Scud Missile attack!
