Sure, there’s a big game between Army and Navy this weekend in Philadelphia. But Army already won the most important contest of all—the prank contest. How? By hacking the email at the U.S. Naval Academy and sending this email to the student body, with advice on how to prepare for Navy’s eventual defeat in the actual game:
“First: when we stage for march-on, we need to clean up our act. The internet has us pegged as dirty slobs – this year, we need to bring trash bags and clean up after ourselves. From what I understand, Army is embarrassed to even be associated with us.
Second: clean up the actual march-on. Please at least pretend to be in the military. Dress right dress, don’t talk at attention, etc. Seriously, this one is too easy.
Third: we need to have better accountability of our goats. This is also very embarrassing.
Of course, hacking that email is probably a federal crime. Still: Point goes to Army. [USA Today]
