Open-mic night at the Chuckle Hut

I’ve got a topical joke, but I know it won’t go further than this blog:

The U.S. military is working on a futuristic anti-mob energy beam that makes people think their skin is on fire. Unfortunately, the military refuses to deploy it because some might view it as a torture machine.

The military’s had this problem before — the device’s first name was TortureBeam 5000.

That’s my time. Thanks, folks. You’ve been great.
