According to the Unusually Suspect News Agency

Yesterday at noon a group of visitors evaded strict security at the NRA headquarters in Virginia.  They were able to infiltrate the HQ building carrying deadly plastic sporks.  Most deployed to the staff lunchroom, while others blocked exits.  Then started the vicious attack on staff members' brown bag lunches.  Sadly 37 lunches were destroyed before well-armed staffers bought down the last terrorist.  While most invaders were neutralized by fire from NRA employees, some succumbed to self-inflicted spork pricks.  No member of the NRA office staff was injured.  A memorial service for those 37 innocent lunches is scheduled for Thursday morning, and CEO Wayne LaPierre  will delivery the eulogy.  One employee interviewed broke down weeping.  "My wife made my favorite sandwich.  We are devastated', he said.

'It is long past time to institute meaningful spork control.  I blame the powerful eating utensil lobby for preventing effective measures from being enacted in Congress,'  an NRA spokesman added.

A sporksperson from the Alliance for Plastic Disposables predictably blamed violent cooking shows on television, and the recent increase of unregulated picnics and catered events for the tragedy.

Do not venture over the snow covered mound of fettucini with vodka sauce, there is no there there.

This has been another in my series of NRA ridicule.  The first is here.

Ha! made you look!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
