Anybody wanna buy an aircraft carrier for a penny?

Kinda a bittersweet footnote to a historic warship and her crew who served the nation for nearly five decades.

The U.S. Navy announced Tuesday that the former aircraft carrier USS Forrestal had been sold for scrap for one penny. The ship will be towed from its berth in Philadelphia to Brownsville, Texas, for dismantling. The Forrestal, named after former Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, was decommissioned in 1993.

Maybe it will be the flagship of the Texas navy when the fuckers secede?

Five decades is pretty darn good for a piece of military hardware, at least!
