Space Balls

The Pentagon says it has to shoot down a malfunctioning spy satellite because of the threat of a toxic gas cloud. Space security experts are calling the rationale "comedic gold."

Oh but can't you see them having fun and for extra points, poking the finger at the Chinese? This was the biggest funfest the army've had in ages, and so much jollier than getting blown up in Iraq, no?
BTW in line with my policy of using the govt as my example, I will be filing "because of a toxic gas cloud" as a plausible excuse for almost any behaviour.
