Silly Week 2012


The government of Malbolé awarded a USD3.5 billion contract to Dumnocopters Inc. to supply 10 attack helicopters for the country’s military. Dumnocopters, a very recently formed company (a joint venture between MB Poultry Inc. and Kichap Sauces Inc.) was to design, develop and build the most advanced attack helicopter to date.

After 2 years, they unveiled the Tigris HSS ( Halikodter Sherang & Shokong, Malboleian for “Attack & Support Helicopter”). The government of Malbolé is very proud of the “national” helicopter and is now currently negotiating with a few African countries to supply the Tigris HSS to their military.

Recently, documents have surfaced indicating that Dumnocopter purchased 10 attack helicopters from a pan-European helicopter company about 2 years ago for USD 35 million each. The officials of the company denied that there was ever such a purchase and whatever documents linking this are all false.

All things appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real things, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

HAPPY 2012.
