— Ace Milk again. Remember Saddam's famous "Milk Factory"? A milk factory in which the workers wore t-shirts reading MILK FACTORY, in English for some reason.
And now it's Milk Subterranean Distribution System. An underground railroad for dairy products.
Palestinian officials from the Gaza Strip have distributed a set of carefully-staged photographs they say are evidence that the smuggling tunnels running under the Gaza-Egypt border are for milk and other essential goods, not weapons.
The photographs show masked Palestinian militants lifting jugs of milk and sacks of baby food from the entrance to one of the tunnels on the Gaza side of the border.
Israel insists that the tunnels, of which intelligence estimates indicate there are hundreds, are used to import small arms and advanced weapons like heavy mortar shells, anti-tank missiles and anti-aircraft missiles. The tunnels are also said to be the conduit via which the Palestinians receive the material used to build their Kassam rockets.
Hamas has acknowledged Israel's position by insisting during ceasefire negotiations last month that it would not agree to halt smuggling efforts as part of the truce.
Iran immediately announced its 6000 high-speed centrifuges were only for the purpose of a new milk-blending technique they call "extreme homogenization."
"We need 400 gallons of 2%, Stat!"

Gee, Moby, Israel might not appreciate nuking a postage stamp on their border with Egypt. It'd be like nuking Vermont.

I knew the idea had merit.

How fuckin' stupid do they think we are?
TIP: when lying to cover your ass, try not to insult the intelligence of the entire world.
This is almost as insulting as "depends on what your definition of is is"....almost.

I feel for the Israelis, really.
Damned goblin-infested tunnels can really ruin one's day.

Hey, sunlight reduces the nutritional value of milk. They were just being extra careful.

You know what they say: If Israel gives up its Hello Kitty stickers, there will be no more Gaza Hallmark franchises. If the Palestinians give up their Hello Kitty stickers, there'll be no more Palestine.
