US Military Tosses Kittens Out of Airplane

Photo via Slate

Photos have surfaced that allegedly show the US military tossing kittens out of an airplane. When Gen. G. Rover Barkly was asked about the photos he said, "We wanted to find out if a cat really does always land on its feet. The upside is that if they don't make it the first time, we have eight more tries per animal. That is a bargain for the American taxpayer." I made that all up naturally, that photo is one of the more humorous ones from a Slate story titled "Cats of War." link

First this is posted on Miss Celania, then it's tweeted around the twittersphere a bit, where someone removes the "it's a joke" text and replaces it with text describing this as an actual event. It's claimed that this was done as an artistic statement on "neo-fascism and social isolationism in the military-industrial complex". The modified picture and text hits reddit and goes viral. Someone (anonymously) comes forward with an in-person description of the event and it gets picked up by secondary and finally by primary new sources. A congressional panel is appointed to investigate while all the armed services are required to undergo 'sensitivity to kittens' training. Later a news correspondent at CNN calculates that Kitten-Gate has cost modest sum of $14,000,000,000,000 to the American taxpayer.
