A new training program has been introduced at the prestigious US cadet academy, West Point, pillow fighting!
Several cadets were seriously injured after it was discovered that the pillows were filled with plastic feathers not goose ones. It seems that many pillows burst open releasing a plethora of plastic feathers into the air and believing that the plastic feathers were too hard, cadets dived on the ground to avoid being bombarded by such lethal flying objects!
Bruised ribs, damaged knees, ankles, and cracked heads were recorded by medical staff and in the future participants will be forced to wear steel helmets to protect their very soft heads!
A Vietnam Vet, Jo Stoned-Eisenhower (no relation to the real Ike) issued the following comment:
A West Point spokesman, 5 star general, Homer Gay, also gave a statement:
"Fact is this training exercise is designed to battle-harden our cadets just in case they are sent in to deal with ISIS because we regard their threat like a 'Feather in the wind' and there is no point in chasing a bunch of headless chickens, we prefer to 'goose' them alive!"
An ISIS spokesman holding the head of a featherless gander in his hand also said:
"US cadets be warned, we are prepared for you and this is the proof, a featherless, headless goose in the hand is worth 2 in your Bush, thanks George!"
More as we hit the pillow and not the Foxhole!
