Yes, once the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. competed in the missile gap.

Turns out China's now competing with the U.S. in another, er, missile gap.

And making up the difference, to boot.

To China, The Ford can only say ... wait for it, wait for it ... Bra-vo!

Or would you prefer "Breast wishes?"

Or is that too much, um, flattery?

OK, The Ford's done.

Cross my heart.

(On an unrelated note, has anyone considered that perhaps the true downfall of the U.S.S.R. was how much of a pain it is to type "U.S.S.R."? I mean, c'mon, that's an awful lot of capital lettters and periods. Especially when compared to "U.S." Half the caps, half the periods, shoot, we're 50% ahead on productivity before we've even gotten away from the name of our respective countries. Which might mean single-capped, no-perioded China's got the true advantage, even beyond their mysteriously burgeoning bosoms.)
