Now comes word that the U.S. may be standing down from its use of colors to notify the nation of our security status... in times like these. I do love naming conventions, like Apple’s OS (Jungle Book or German tank), or agency conference room names, so why not use a pop culture fav? In this case, Pulp Fiction. (Reservoir Dogs, while a natural extension with its brilliant use of color as surname, still relies on color.)
Currently, the system ranks threats on a 1-5 scale of severe, high, elevated, guarded and low. A Pulp Fiction* reimagineering would see this change to...
Low: Buddy Holly the waiter. No real threat there.
Guarded: Butch. Increased vigilance.
Elevated: Mia Wallace. There’s danger there, lurking, under the surface.
High: I want to put Honey Bunny here, but Jules is the chill you want at this level.
Severe: The Wolf. You know when he shows up things are truly fucked.
Feel safer, America! Jules is on it!
*Sorry, tried to work Marsellus and The Gimp™ in there somewhere.
