"... And Roberto Filoseta's WMDs, as the name suggests, was a sharp skit that debunked pre-war media frenzy (amplified chattering and typewriter tapping), then sent Kangaris wandering into the audience, calling "weapons of mass destruction?" with increasing desperation, as if searching for an errant cat. Who said electroacoustic satire was dead?"
