U-S-A! Chant Fails on L Train

After Osama bin Laden's death, proud Americans poured into the streets. They cheered in Times Square! They waved flags on Ground Zero! They flashed their boobies in front of the White House! And, on the NYC subway line that runs through Williamsburg, they stared blankly and stifled yawns while some guy implored "everybody with a pair" to chant "U-S-A!" with him. Or, as YouTube user Bigjstokes describes it,

"Bin Laden's dead! Anybody give a shit?" he cries, as his fellow Americans avert eye contact. And with that, New York returned to its usual state of jaded eye-rolling. Freedom from enthusiasm on your Monday morning commute: It's what our troops are fighting for. [AnimalNY]



You mean the military that protect us at the rate of $1 trillion a year in peace time, no credible threat for its size and spending more than the military spending of the next 25 countries together? As Gen. Smedley said, it's a racket!
