White House Erects Massive, Intimidating Barrier to Prevent Future Fence Jumping

This weekend an emotionally disturbed Iraq veteran with an affinity for weapons jumped the fence in front of the White House and made it inside the building before being apprehended. It's a serious situation and no doubt the Secret Service is making changes outside public view that will keep such an intrusion from happening again.

However, they have also taken the public step of putting a second, tiny fence in front of the regular fence, and it is hilarious.

Yep, that should do the trick. No...wait. It needs one more advanced security feature.

Perfect. Impenetrable.

Tho maybe we should cut the Secret Service some slack. There isn't a lot that can be done to address an issue like this on such short notice. A ha ha ha ha. Because the new fence is short. It's a tiny fence.
