Sometimes you make up a theme for the magazine months in advance you think “I’ll think of something to write, I got plenty of time.” But sometimes you don’t come up with shit. Wet and Wild? I’ve been afraid of the water since I was 5 years old.
So even when the usually inspiring combination of materials are consumed and still nothing comes up, you toss ideas around the office like a bouncy ball and see if anything hits. Well, you be the judge.
War sucks. I like playing guns, paintball and Modern Warfare and all that. But real war sucks. So what if all wars in history were fought with water balloons and super soakers and the like…What if indeed?!?!??!?!
The Super Soaker Boston Massacre
In March of 1770 the colonists were hot under the collar about King George and all his Britishness and stuff. Well those Redcoats really cooled them off!
The Water Balloon offensive at Khe Sanh
Since WWI, technological advances with water balloons by the time of Vietnam allowed them to be handheld.
The Bull Run Slip and Slide-off
The Water Balloon Bombing of Sommes
After months and months in trenches nothing cleaned off the stench like a nice strafing run from the German Air Force.
