If you can believe it, Ted — the Seth MacFarlane movie about a potty-mouth teddy bear that comes to life — has a defense industrial base reference.
The film opens with the narrator — Patrick Stewart of Star Trek fame — giving the background of John Bennett, a young boy with no friends except his stuffed bear, Teddy.
Bennett wishes that his stuffed animal was real and, to my best recollection, Stewart tells us this:
There is nothing more powerful than a young boy’s wish; except an Apache helicopter. It comes equipped with machine guns and a missile launcher. It’s a machine of death.
Hysterical. Boeing should find a way to work this into its Apache PR material.
