Rematch: Bambi vs Godzilla… Bambi wins!

The rematch of Bambi vs the Godzilla* of Japan’s army aka the Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) is having Bambi coming out the winner!


Bambi vs the GSDF
Japan Security Watch | Feb. 9, 2011
40 servicemen from the 27th Infantry Regiment (Light) of the GSDF 5th Brigade were dispatched along with two helicopters and ten snowmobiles at the request of Kushiro in Eastern Hokkaido to assist 33 members of the Shiranuka branch of the Hokkaido Hunting Club in a cull of the deer. A further 32 staff from the prefectural government participated….
…Herding their quarry on snowmobile and by helicopter, the GSDF attempted to drive the deer
…[they] expected to kill 100 deer over the course of the three-day operation, but … failed to kill a single doe, buck or even Bambi-like juvenile more...

Hmm, let’s see those odds against Bambi again:

  • 40 servicemen
  • 33 hunters
  • 32 bureaucrats
  • 2 helicopters
  • 10 snowmobiles
  • at least 20 trucks and cars
  • 3 days
  • Damn, that sounds like part of the old joke, “How many X does it screw in a light bulb?”
