Recently a certain world power has been "flexing its muscles" by flying around Cold War era bombers. We're talking machines older than most wargamers. So, in light of this, I've come up with "Yo' Bomba'" Jokes (TM and Patent Pending)

Propose your best completion of the phrase "Yo' Bomba' so old…"

My options so far:
"…we've deployed Estes model rockets as coastal defense."
"…we can't find a jet slow enough to keep pace with it."
"…we've reactivated the Confederate Air Force."
"…the Wright Brothers have filed for a patent infringement."
"…we had to Google to find out if it could still fly."
"…no one's updated its Wiki entry since 2004."

Your turn!
