This was inspired a while ago by the satirist and comedian Bill Hicks, who was, in my humble opinion, a genius, if a little perverted. He’s dead. At 36. From pancreatic cancer. But I think he was assassinated by the FBI because it makes a better story.
Anyway, he was most prolific during the first Gulf War, and he had a sketch where he talked about the incredible accuracy of smart bombs to knock the fillings out of the teeth of the enemy, and he wondered how they couldn’t use the same technology to shoot food at hungry people.
