More Comedy Disguised as News

Here’s an excerpt from an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer which has to have been intended to be funny.

Soldiers in Iraq will get a taste of Cincinnati when they receive 10 cornhole sets made by a Reading soldier’s family and painted by students.

Army Spc. 4 Shannon Bucksath, a 1990 Reading High School graduate, left Oct. 13 for Iraq. He’s stationed at Camp Navistar on the Iraq-Kuwait border, where he’s part of the 383rd Movement Control Team that moves convoys.

“We had a going-away party for him and we were playing cornhole,” said his dad, Donald Bucksath. “He really liked playing cornhole.”

If you don’t know why this is funny, think Ned Beatty in Deliverance. If you still don’t get it, then it would probably be best if you just forgot all about any of this and went back to whatever you were doing before you stumbled into this den of perversion and vulgarity.
