homeopathic bomb

There's some great satire of homeopathy over at NewsBiscuit (h/t: PZ Myers at Pharyngula):

New Age terrorists have harnessed the power of homeopathy for evil. 'Homeopathic weapons represent a major threat to world peace,' said President Barack Obama, 'they might not cause any actual damage but the placebo effect could be quite devastating.'

The H2O-bomb has been developed by the radical New Age group, The Axis of Aquarius. In a taped message to the world, their leader, Professor Hubert Pennington, said: 'For too long the New Age movement has been dismissed as a bunch of beardy weirdy cranks and charlatans. But now we have weapons-grade homeopathy and we demand to be taken seriously.'

Homeopathic bombs are comprised of 99.9% water but contain the merest trace element of explosive. The solution is then repeatedly diluted so as to leave only the memory of the explosive in the water molecules. According to the laws of homeopathy, the more that the water is diluted, the more powerful the bomb becomes.

The whole thing reminds me of this hilarious poster:

Oh, dear. We have a wonderful friend, a really good person, who is always tinkering with tinctures and herbal extracts. He makes 'em himself. Whenever we complain about a cold, headache or whatnot, he'll offer us his little, dark vials of...whatever it is they put in there. It's not like we can say no, right? He's our friend. My husband ignores the stuff, but I try. I always try. I figure, it can't hurt me and it just may help. They never do anything, but after reading your post, I will never be able to look at those little, brown (shitty) vials the same again! :shock:
