I know that this is much easier to say now that the Cuban Missle Crises is over, but I did think the commercial where the people ducked under the picnic blanket was very funny. I mean, what would the picnic blanket do?

I know that there wasn't anything else to do, and I'm aware that this would have provided false hope for the people, but if one actually plays the scenerio of crawling under a picnic blanket in their head as an atom bomb goes off, then one may see the humor in that. The funniest part had to be how calm the announcer was as the family ducked, when he said "this family knows what to do. Your family should as well."

I would like to once again state that it is only funny now because the threat is gone. IN a time of fear, that would have appeared much more logical.
