Folks we live in a world where peanut butter has a label on it that says "this product was made in a factory that handles peanuts." And yes, we live in a world where "hot coffee" has a product warning on it saying that "contents may be very hot." So is it really a stretch to imagine a world with a Godzilla running around in it where weapons like the one above, might draw some confusion by those using it?
Just imagine the dialogue:
Beffudled American: "Are we supposed to hit ourselves with this, captain?"
Answer: "No, you need to aim it at the enormous creature knocking over the Golden Gate bridge."
Beffuddled American scratches head and says, "Oh. Okay."
One could say it's "tongue in cheek" but with the U.S. ranking 30 globally for students in mathematics, 23 in science, and 19 in reading I can't really argue with this. Sadly, the sign on the Godzilla busting nuke in the trailer is very believable.
