    Could not make myself watch the whole thing! I hope it was a parody because the inaccuracies in the story and pictures was epic

    If it doesn't have Gun Jesus it isn't going to be accurate.

    At first looked like it was as good as other TFB articles/videos. But the content was a good spoof this time. Pretty funny.

    I stopped watching after about 45 seconds when the Trap Door Springfield was misidentified as the Krag-Jorgensen, the 30-40 Krag was called anemic, and the Phillipines were described as "the Caribbean islands " where khat was being grown.

    And those were all within the first 45 seconds. I literally could feel IQ points being sucked out of my head.

    I can't believe that "guns" people would actually think that this video isn't a parody.

    Seriously, "Gaston Browning" should be a clue.
