No More MASH

The US military gave away its last Mobile Army Surgical Hospital today to the people of Pakistan. Not too interesting - until the end of the article:

The Pakistani doctors, nurses and technicians taking over the MASH just gave blank looks and said, "No," when asked if they've ever seen "MASH."

But Pakistani Army spokesman Maj. Farooq Nasir said he saw one episode of the show six years ago.

"It was a nice comedy," he said with a smile before becoming earnest and adding, "They didn't behave like that here. They were quite serious."

You would hope so.
