This Week’s Sign of the Apocalypse: ‘Rambo’ General Becomes ‘Dancing Queen’

After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on earth.

In an apparent proof that life imitates art and not vice versa, a Thai general [1] has followed in the steps of such manly macho men as Arnold Schwarzenegger [2] and Vin Diesel [3] to become the next of his kin to exchange the fast and furious soldier life for a role less full of preposterone [4]. Except, oh yeah, he’s not acting.

After apparently threatening to bomb and airdrop snakes [5] on protesters [6], the general was reassigned to promote fitness to the public through aerobics classes at marketplaces.

“The army chief wants me to be a presenter leading aerobic dancers. I have prepared one dance. It’s called the throwing-a-hand-grenade dance,” said the unfazed general, true to his image.

But we’re sure the Warrior Spirit within will help him battle through the hordes of unfit citizens to hopefully somehow end in a heartwarming dance-off [7] where everybody discovers a bit more of who they are.
