Fish Don’t Kill People, Air-To-Air Missiles Do

A commercial fishermen  in the Gulf of Mexico last month ensnared a 8ft long missile in his longline.  The missile contained a hole leading the fishermen to assume it was previously detonated.  Wanting to keep the missile as a souvenir, he tied it to the top of his boat where it rested for the remainder of 14 day fishing trip.  Ashore several days later, emergency officials determined that the missile was actually live.  A bomb squad from MacDill Air Force Base was summoned to the marina

The fishermen is on record as stating, “If it was going to explode, it was going to explode a long time ago”.

Let jokes ensue.
