The "rains down in Africa" bogged some trucks down in the mud and the Cubans were using a T51 to pull them out, which gave the "contractor" a perfect shot on the tank with his Hellfire. Raytheon has the photos in one of their visitor areas captioned as the first confirmed kill by a Hellfire.

    The line "there is nothing that a hundred or so men couldn't do" refers to the ability of a small group of well trained mercenaries to overthrow unstable governments in Africa.

    Think about that the next time you think this song is gay.
    The wiki article about the song doesn't make any mention of this.

    Okay.

    STOP.

    Are you going to tell me they made a movie about a brainy and bald, goatie-wearing loser with a head too big for his body?

    About someone with a fable for "blue", and short-haired nerd chicks whose name is an alliteration?

    Somebody who nerdily refers to his friends as his "minions",
    and his work drones as his "babies"?



    I know such a person:

    Spoiler:




    I am laughing.
    I am crying.
    I ate a cheeseburger.

    I am going to get so wasted tonight.



    Oh, wait, no I can't.
    Training.
    Gonna make those kids paaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy.

    Not fair!

    I have a light tan, and I can get an eyepatch,
    and I even have a scar on my chest.

    From when they cut a mole out.

    It really stung, you know. Couldn't sneeze for a week.


    Oh, now I am going to have nightmares.
