Somethings Shouldn't Exist

A few years ago I remember watching a particularly good episode of South Park. The episode featured Cartman looking for more mature friends and he decided it was best to do this on the internet. Unfortunately his new friends kept getting arrested moments after they met, so he was advised to join NAMBLA – the North American Man Boy Love Association, where he would meet lots of interesting mature friends.

Jealous, all the other boys also joined, it was only when the lights went out and the FBI showed up did we discover it had been a mistake and Cartman had joined the wrong association, he was actually recommended to join the North American Marlon Brando Look-a-likes Association.

Anyway, it was a really great episode that even my Father, who never liked any comedy post 1982, liked. But I had assumed it was all just made up, so imagine my surprise when I found this out…

Fact about the Federated States of Micronesia of the day: The FSM is a sovereign, self-governing state in free association with the United States, which is wholly responsible for its defense. The Division of Maritime Surveillance operates a paramilitary Maritime Wing and a small Maritime Police Unit. The Compact of Free Association allows FSM citizens to join the US military without having to obtain U.S. permanent residency or citizenship.
