As long as everybody keeps his, no problems anywhere.

Don't forget, this is an old song. He wrote it in the 60's, I think. So that'll account for the "error" Sherman points out. As you can see at the beginning of the quote, China just had their first successful detonation, so everything after China in the song was probably fictional at the time.

That doesn't have anything to do with Hiroshima, or with Nagasaki, or nukes.

We can all go on and be serious and get a philosphical look, but sometimes you gotta find the fun in the pathetic parts. Do not take that personal by the way.

But the song has a rather good point, as I see it though. So I do believe it has something to do with nukes.. Once again we are there with the envy, wich the song points out.

Well.. it does with the Nukes, but not with Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

Therefore we are not completely

Back to the song it does have a good point, even though it contains dark humor. As long as the nukes dont leave the silos i think we'll be ok.

I can see why....
Humor is a way of coping with bad, sad, or scary things, events or sircumstances. I remember about 10-15 years ago a plane (EL AL btw) hit an appartment building in Amsterdam. It was a big tragedy. I heard the first joke about it the next day....
