Life imitates Weekly World News

In a previous post ("Thomeone thet uth up tha bomb"), we noted a shocking Weekly World News article which reported Al Qaeda's "development" of a Gay Bomb which would turn anyone within a 30 mile radius into a homosexual.

Apparently there's a gay bomb race. The US military has been working on its own gay bomb (To quote a recently retired columnist, I'm not making this up)

The Pentagon considered developing a host of non-lethal chemical weapons that would disrupt discipline and morale among enemy troops, newly declassified documents reveal.

Most bizarre among the plans was one for the development of an "aphrodisiac" chemical weapon that would make enemy soldiers sexually irresistible to each other. Provoking widespread homosexual behaviour among troops would cause a "distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale, the proposal says.
