Well, then, I guess it's cleverly funny. :D

And now I know what Poe's law is too. Bonus.

If I were an evil woman, I'd suggest that the TV Tropes article provides the best information, but I appreciate that you all have lives. =:)

I really want to believe it's a joke, because then my brain will stop going, "But then wouldn't the Romans have artillery?" But I've seen enough trucks with multiple bumper stickers dedicated to both Jesus and guns, and I don't think anyone is THAT dedicated to satire.
:help:
