In 1989, Lieutenant William “Mad Dog” Rizer was called before the Senate Military Investigations Committee to discuss his statements regarding the effectiveness of military operations in response to the Red Falcon invasion of the previous year. The following is a transcript of his testimony before Congress. The Contra Hearings.

From Chris's Invincible Super-Blog.

Head over to vNES and play Contra.

I make it a point not to play any game that includes teethy ground vaginas. It's a personal code of honor that has gotten me safely through life thus far. If you ARE going to play with teethy ground vaginas, for Dobbs' sake, use protection! This can't be emphasized enough. Be sure to debeak that prairie squid prior to use.

This is brilliant.

I remember wondering as a kid whether or not the Iran-Contra hearings had anything to do with Contra.

Ground vaginas don't taste like 9V batteries.

You'd get nowhere with just the title code.

Needless to say, effing awesome 'transcript.' The references to other games was a great inclusion.

Good thing, at least next time they'll be issued shoulder pads.

Holy crap!

I was reading this post in Google Reader, and in absentminded boredom typed out "↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A".

And I was rewarded with NINJAS.
