My Personal Defcon Listing

In a previous post on the coronavirus I made reference to going from concerned to worried. My mind, not working like most people’s, remembered the excellent comedy piece on other nations alert status that was allegedly done by John Cleese. With that, I realized I did have my own version.

DEFCON 5: The Dude Abides All is right and good in the world, pull up a chair, sit down, have a beverage of your choice and light up a cigar/pipe/whatever. Chill dude, all is good.

DEFCON 4: Sit Up Something is going on, time to sit up, pay attention, and perhaps even make some contingency plans.

What’s going on over there?

DEFCON 3: Really?!? Are you really trying to pull that? Are you going to make me dig into things, respond to things, and/or otherwise take action?

Really dude?

DEFCON 2: A Bit Miffed Well above peeved, I’m alert, ready, and will take what actions are required though I will do what I can to de-escalate things if I can and if it is the right thing to do.

Defcon 1: Welcome To Scotland.

It’s on. I can make it as personal as the above, or we can go larger scale if needed.

Thought I would share a bit of humor (such as it is) today as I think we all could use a bit of a laugh.
