Imagine This At The Siege Of Antioch

Mexicali, Mexico

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a marvel of modern engineering! A device so useful, so simple, so absolutely ingenious that it boggles the mind!

Behold! It is The Mexican Weed Cannon!

That's right. Police in Mexicali seized a pick-up truck mounted air cannon that they say has been used to lob packages of marijuana over the border and into the lucrative markets of the United States.

But is it, really? Maybe these are tests for something less sinister? I don't know about you, but I see that and think Fifteenth Century Siege Weapon. I mean, come on, in the back of a pick-up it's more mobile than a trebuchet, easier to aim and fire than a bombard and would look really badass at the next SCA get together. Toss some duct tape and burlap around it, slap on your Kingdom's colors and go to town, baby!

Because marijuana cannon? That's just stupid. I mean, what's gonna happen? Will they get their scattered, poorly aimed product to the markets they want? Or are they just all going to get picked up by Arizona State Troopers?

That's a trick question, by the way.
