The French have already declared a full unconditional surrender.

We (and they) don't know why or to whom but apparently a giant rubber duck is reason enough.

Upon seeing the unveiling of a giant rubber duck North Korea has vowed to develope their own.

Present North Korean R&D timetables suggest they may have a somewhat functional design of their own ready by by 2035.

South Koreas comments in this were mostly just wild giggling.

The Navy could not give this President an aircraft carrier christen with his name, so a compromise has been taken.

Lady's and Gentlemen, I like to introduce you to our newest combat support ship. The USS Barack Hussein Obama. (YGN-00) (that's double zero)

It's main mission is to campaign around the world.

Here you see it's fully loaded, and embarking on its first mission.

Barack Hussein Obama: "I love it, by the way, what does hull designation "YGN" stand for?"

U.S. Navy: "It stands for a Service Type Craft"

Barack Hussein Obama: "Perfect, that's me, no doubt about it. And it's fully loaded?"

U.S. Navy: "Not until after you board, sir."

With no aircraft suitable for carrier operation the UK gave a free hand to their designers.
Beneath the benign exterior is a full complement of rapidly deployable farmyard inflatables.

A spokesman for the Special Boat Squadron said the inflatable goat was particularly well suited to amphibious landings on rocky shorelines.
