OK, so “Gulf War II” is a misnomer. What shall we call it?
How about “The Stunted Nephew of All Battles.” Has a nice ring to it, don’t
Or The Retarded Step-Child of All Battles?
Really, the possibilities are endless. What’ve you got?
UPDATE: So far, Bill in Boston is leading the pack with “Desert Storm II – Electric Boogaloo.”
I’d considered and discarded “Desert Storm II – The Wrath of Khan” when I first wrote the post. Now I know why.
