The Most Trusted Name In News

Watching a little CNN as I head off to work and they just had a bunch of footage of scary al-Qaeda training camps. The story? A possible al-Qaeda attack on the Olympics in Beijing. Not that there's any evidence this will happen, of course. It's just something that some CNN producer has decided could happen and hence the story.

Here's my story pitch to CNN. It's also something that could happen: I've known since childhood that the ruthless Cobra Commander has been using genetic manipulation and human cloning in order to create an army of super soldiers who are stronger, faster, more agile, more resilient and smarter than the average person. Seems to me that these superhuman clones could blend in well with.... Olympic athletes. CNN should do this story. What if Cobra Commander replaces the world's Olympic Athletes with his superhuman clone soldiers? As soon as the torch is lit, the clones could attack and take over Beijing, China and eventually the world.

Good point.

But there's an easy screening procedure in place: Make all the Olympic athletes go to the Bejing shooting range and give then ten minutes of shooting instruction. Anybody who can hit the target after that clearly can't be a COBRA operative. Of course, this will also eliminate any GI JOE undercover operatives, but it's a necessary drawback.
