Default Amusing stuff from the US Military...

Made me laugh anyway (and of course it is not true it is humour).

I believe the Littoral Combat Ship is known within the USN as the Little Crappy Ship...

Sorry, I thought it was obvious it was humour, not news (other stories include 'Army welcomes first transgender Dog' and 'Air Force to allow average uncool people to become fighter pilots').

It has NOTHING to do with the game and despite your later edit that "of course it is not true" is is NOT " amusing stuff from the US military" it is a childish attempt at humour from DuffelBlog
