The first question on everyone's lips will be... will coffee show up on the piss test? Can I drink coffee on leave and liberty? What if my friends are around me drinking coffee... could I come up hot on the pee test? How long does coffee stay detectable in the blood stream? Does drinking coffee fund terrorism?

Given the way things work nowadays, it wouldn't surprise me if somebody got into trouble for putting out this fake release. After all, it is public money.

Yea, the Pentagon, AFHQ, STRATCOM, DISA, Cyber, ISR, ALL deployments, are going to take their coffee pots out of the offices/work area. NOT going to happen. And I DON'T even drink it. But will allow it!

AS for fake, it is April Fools Day!

This is a really funny article. It literally reads like something the dufflebag.com puts out. If this is true you can certainly expect a civil going on in the military.

Am I the only person who sees no humor in the government spending public money to disseminate a poor April Fool joke?

Yet not a whisper about all the money the government wastes on a daily basis in many areas? I am disgusted with all the wasted spending by the government, but it makes no difference. They just keep on wasting it daily and they keep on getting elected.

Come on Bob, any money spent towards this, if there was any, would be trivial.

I'm just thankful somebody in the Air Force still has a sense of humor.

April fools joke aside, I'm not sure if I could survive without coffee. It'd be pretty rough, that's for sure.

Amen to that! There may be life before coffee but it sure as hell ain't intelligent!

Please, would someone pass a little green to RFD for submitting a stand-up thought concerning the Govt blowing their bosses funds on a small Apr 1st laugh.
Those expenditures could have gone twd keeping 'Big Blue Bird 1' in the air longer.

Behind the times as always I see. Please explain what money was spent...?

FFS! How much could this really have cost? A PA specialist could whip this up in 15 minutes. That's a smoke break. How much did it cost to put it on the website? Probably nothing. The site is already there and they already have the bandwidth to host it. This probably didn't cost a dime.

Funny article. The sad part was the JAG-induced disclaimer at the end.
The "cost", if any, to take a break from the routine to let off some steam and have a laugh is important. Maybe if there was a little more of this we'd be in better shape.
Reminds me of the video clip of President Clinton as he was leaving office...the scene of him watching laundry in the dryer was priceless.
Laughter is the best medicine!

Whatever it did cost to create and post this story was probably regained tenfold in value of morale and SNCO humility.

But, just in case: I'm glad I get my caffiene from soda.

Anybody got any good stories of pranks from April Fool's Day? Need another laugh to help boost my morale in this staff weenie hell-hole.

..."Anybody got any good stories of pranks from April Fool's Day? Need another laugh to help boost my morale in this staff weenie hell-hole."

Don't know if it was a joke or not, but I saw a news report that our government blew a few million bucks on the study of the "sex life" of snails!

Sad to say Sly ol Dawg, but the snail sex life study is not an April Fools joke...just another example of the government keeping colleges in "business".

Not an April Fools prank, but one radar I worked on had an optical eyepiece (like binoculars) that we would use to verify the target. Many times the black rubber eye cup would be coated with ink, shoe polish, or pencil graphite.

Former Pope A Pilot, Brings Instant Credibility

ANN April 1 Special Coverage

One of the names that is being quietly discussed as a candidate to replace Craig Fuller as president and CEO of AOPA (Airplane Owners and Pilots Association) is Joseph Ratzinger ... who the world knows better as now-former Pope Benedict XVI.

Ratzinger recently resigned the Papacy, and is reportedly looking for an organization that could use his skills in his retirement. It was reported that the former Pope holds a private pilot certificate and a helicopter rating, and often flew the papal helo from the Vatican to Castelgandolfo, his summer retreat.

An internal AOPA memo forwarded to ANN points out that Ratzinger has many of the qualities that could make him a viable candidate for the post. "He is a pilot, and he has international credentials that will make him a strong leader for the international chapters we have. And let's face it, he's infallible. Maybe that will finally get Campbell off our backs," the memo says.

ANN Editor-in-Chief Jim Campbell was unavailable for comment.

The memo indicates that the former Pope has not yet been approached about the idea, and admits that they would have to come up with a very attractive package to lure Ratzinger out of retirement. Another memo discusses the possibility of constructing a balcony at AOPA HQ in Fredrick, MD, from which he could address the membership, and muses about a deal with the White House for a time-share agreement for the use of nearby Camp David. "Maybe we can give him a different retreat to fly to," the memo states.

The sad part is that they felt compelled to reveal it was a joke with a disclaimer at the bottom. Do they think Airmen are so dense they couldn't figure it out on their own? And if they couldn't, so much the better for an April Fools joke.

I think certain peeps forget that the money was spent during budget planning time and the space was filled.

I'm sure that they could have done an article of spouse's rank, but too many people would not have believed the statement about it being an April Fools joke. :noidea
