I worked with him in the late 80’s at the Ramstein AB Safety Office. He was the Flight Safety Officer,, and I was NCOIC of Ground Safety. A truly great, down to earth person!

Under no circumstances should GEN Strangelove be allowed into the War Room, why he would see the Big Board. Plus, no fighting allowed in the War Room, although with today’s Administration that would probably be a plus.

I can’t imagine the $hit that this guy has had to endure through the course of his military career. In the old days he would be buying drinks every time he walked into a bar.

Strangelove? The irony is profound. Maybe he holds the secret to cobalt-thorium G.

It was this following piece in the article that made me think it was a joke, otherwise, I don’t think I normally make fun of names:

“. . . The United States initially nominated Jack D. Ripper commander of Burpelson Air Force Base, to the job. But his nomination had . . .”

Imagine how I feel, Dmitri.

Breedlove, where’s the fun it that. Strangelove, Strangelove, he’s our guy. He’ll still get to see the Big Board.

My good friend, COL Bat Guano, called me to confirm that this is correct. The guy’s name is Strangelove. Bat and I went to the Basic Course and Airborne School together, he would never steer me wrong.

How does Col. Guano feel about the preverts and all their preversions being allowed in the military these days? And where’s that damned Coke machine? I need some change.

General “Buck” Turgidson: Hmm... Strangelove? What kind of a name is that? That ain’t no Kraut name is it, Stainesey?
Mr. Staines: He changed it when he became a citizen. Used to be Merkwürdigliebe.
[the German word for “Strangelove”]
General “Buck” Turgidson: Well, a Kraut by any other name, uh Stainesey?

In lieu of self flagellation, I recommend one of the many fine craft bourbons. PM me for a list of highly recommended distillers.

I believe that he is reconsidering his demand that desecration of the machine required answering to the Coca-Cola company given their corporate position on same sex marriage. LGBT, etc. etc.

It ain’t your father’s commie conspiracy anymore.

This is hilarious! The general’s real name is BREEDLOVE. I’ve known him since middle school and served in the USAF with him in the early 80’s.
