Default The US Navy welcomed the latest member of its fleet today.

The US Navy welcomed the latest member of its fleet today.
Click the image to open in full size.

Pictured above:
The USS William Jefferson Clinton (CVS1) set sail today from its home port of Vancouver, BC.
The ship is the first of its kind in the Navy and is a standing legacy to President Bill Clinton
"for his foresight in military budget cuts" and his conduct while president. The ship is constructed
nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots.
It boasts an arsenal comprised of one (unarmed) F14 Tomcat or one (unarmed) F18 Hornet aircraft which
although they cannot be launched or captured on the 100 foot flight deck but form a very menacing presence.

As a standing order there are no firearms allowed on board. The 20 person crew is completely diversified
and includes members of all races, creeds, sex, and sexual orientation. This crew, like the crew aboard the
USS Jimmy Carter, is specially trained to avoid conflicts and appease any and all enemies of the United States
at all costs.

An on board Type One DNC Universal Translator can send out messages of apology in any language to anyone
who may find America offensive. The number of apologies are limitless and though some may sound hollow and
disingenuous, the Navy advises all apologies will sound very sincere.
The ship's purpose is not defined so much as a unit of national defense – but instead in times of
conflict the USS Clinton has orders to seek refuge in Canada. The ship may be positioned near the
Democratic National Party Headquarters for photo-ops and can be used extensively for social experimentation,
and whatever other worthless jobs the ex-commander-in-chief and his wife can think of.

It is largely rumored that the ship will also be the set for the upcoming season of MTV's "The Real World".
The ship was renamed and commissioned USS William J Clinton when someone realized the USS Blowfish was already taken.

Just gotta wonder whether budget cuts or wearing out as much military equipment as possible does more harm to our military.
