CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Two U.S. fighter jets dropped four unarmed bombs into Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park last week when a training exercise went wrong, the U.S. Navy said, angering environmentalists.

The two AV-8B Harrier jets launched from the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard each jettisoned an inert practice bomb and an unarmed laser-guided explosive bomb into the World Heritage-listed marine park off the coast of Queensland state on Tuesday, the U.S. 7th Fleet said in a statement Saturday.

The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest network of coral structures, is rich in marine life and stretches more than 1,800 miles along Australia’s northeast coast.


Here’s hoping Walsh is “The Bomb” again this year.

Don’t make us bomb you again G.I.P.F! The kangaroos are next!!!

  1. I thought this article was a segue from my last posts on the previous blog. It’s the bomb! Meaning it is cool. Likewise, in similar fashion, as I proposed, let’s thumbs down all the posts we like and agree with– that way the hamburglar will either have to join the majority or give a thumbs up– and in that confusion, maybe he will get a job or hobby.

  2. Do people really exist? What proves your existence? Are you people just figments of my imagination? Have I gone crazy? or are these normal questions that people have asked in the past? Is it possible I am screwing around with you with these questions or do I actually want them answered?

    • These lyrics would explain why…….

      Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
      Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
      And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled:
      “Who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me?”

      Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
      You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me
      And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled:
      “You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me.”

      Down came a jumbuck to drink at that billabong.
      Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
      And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag:
      “You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me.”

  3. Now, according to Wiki, a Jumbuck is an Australian term for sheep, featured in Banjo Paterson’s poem “Waltzing Matilda.” It generally denotes a difficult to shear sheep, either large or untamed.
    Dancing with sheep, large, untamed or otherwise, is generally frowned upon in North America outside of Wisconsin.


    Brooks then allegedly clocked Divens in the head with a beer bottle. Brooks allegedly began cursing and then struck him in the head again. Brooks allegedly asked Divens, “Do I need to get my (expletive deleted) gun?” and struck him again. Prosecutors also allege in the warrant that Brooks punched Divens.

    If I would do something like this I’d be in jail. Why are people held to different standards just because of money and fame?

    • I hate that they get away with this stuff but I’m more sick of fans who defend this shit! Every time a player does something wrong fans rally behind them and accuse you of not being a true fan or some shit like that it’s ridiculous. A few weeks ago a player from Canberra did something like this (100th offense) and the club made the fans vote on whether he should be sacked. 95% voted he should keep his job. A couple weeks later he assaulted a female and still kept his job. Seeing New England sack Hernandez immediately and trade in all those jerseys was a breath of fresh air for me.

  5. GIPF… I will send you the plans for radioactive trampoline beaver-launching, but you will have to take into account the weight difference between beavers and your ammo, koalas.
    According to my calculations, the lighter koalas, if targeted for Washington, D.C., would actually land near Green Bay, Wisconsin.
    You may or may not want to alter your trampoline’s trajectory.


    Harbaugh emphasized his message is still the same.

    “That hasn’t changed,” he said. “I think our guys do a good job of playing within the rules.”

    HA! Yeah, the players stay within the rules, it’s the crybaby whiner coach that breaks the rules. How many more reviews do you get when you’re out of timeouts?

  7. Concerning Fantasy Football – I’m the one that offered to put a league together and I will. I moved to Albuquerque for a job offer that did not work out so I am now back in Las Vegas. As soon as I get settled again I will put up a post for everyone to join.

      • That wasn’t even the worst of it. Take a look at his mistakes listing the wrong position on the left guard slide.

        “1. Charlie Johnson

        Unlike Matt Kalil, John Sullivan and Phil Loadholt, starting left guard Charlie Johnson is a weak link on this Vikings offensive line.

        According to Pro Football Focus (subscription required), he graded out as the 61st-best tackle last season. Johnson was a huge liability for the team—especially against the pass.

        While his poor play was masked thanks to the brilliance of Adrian Peterson, due to depth on the offensive line and the Vikings’ push for a youth takeover, the 29-year-old Johnson should be ready to face an open competition this year at camp.

        2. Jeff Baca

        A sixth-round pick in last April’s draft, former UCLA standout Jeff Baca should be considered the backup to Johnson right now.

        With the possibility of becoming a “swing tackle” due to his sheer size and quickness, Baca really hasn’t carved out a role for himself quite yet. But at 6’4″ and 302 pounds, Baca has the size needed to play pretty much any position on the offensive line.

        It should be interesting to watch him develop at camp and attempt to overtake Johnson as the starting right guard down the line.”

  8. Found a hippie sleeping on the bathroom floor in the bar last night…

    So two things;
    First of all, the bluegrass music last night wasnt THAT exciting, but the benches outside and the park across the street arent good options??!!?

    And second, from what I have seen happen to that floor…….nevermind. Words cant describe……..that hippie can shower, but he will never be clean.

    • Yeah man! Still in shock. That hippie who slept in the bathroom came back in yesterday, and without reason went to the broom closet, grabbed the broom, then proceeded to sweep the floors and then the sidewalk outside!!!! I am pretty sure he thinks the Vets Club is his house! The Great Green Gorilla should have told him to sweep before he sleeps.

      I think there are only 12 stand alone bars in county, and 30 bar/restaraunts. It is an honor, for sure. I didnt know there was voting. Or that the people here could read. SEND.

Keep it purple...
