This is Some Fucked Up Shit

Via the Boston Globe (i'm a few days late on this).
Maine National Guard members in Iraq and Afghanistan are never far from the thoughts of their loved ones. But now, thanks to a popular family-support program, they're even closer.

Welcome to the ``Flat Daddy" and ``Flat Mommy" phenomenon, in which life-size cutouts of deployed service members are given by the Maine National Guard to spouses, children, and relatives back home.

The Flat Daddies ride in cars, sit at the dinner table, visit the dentist, and even are brought to confession, according to their significant others on the home front.

I don't even no where to begin with this. Yes, I do. Scrap these stupid cardboard cut-outs and provide military families with robots that look like their deployed loved ones. That would be cool. Especially if they were sexbots. Until this is possible, I'm willing to sleep with the wives of our soldiers in Iraq. We all have to do our part in the war on terror.

Not to be outdone in the reality-imitating-satire world we now live in, satire is striking back.
