In latest Robot Chicken episode “Crushed by a Steamroller on My 53rd Birthday,” G.I. Joe deploys to Afghanistan. They use their years of experience fighting Cobra to train U.S. troops how to fight, but not kill, the Taliban. “The idea is to herd them back to the enemy line, safe and sound,” they instruct them. However, the enemy doesn’t return the favor.
Cobra doesn’t fare any better in actual combat. After the Joes get themselves killed, SEAL Team 6 takes out Cobra Commander and give him a burial at sea like Osama Bin Laden.
