Why is it classified …

… if the enemy knows what’s in it, is a party to it, and knows we know that they know about it? I see a few possibilities: 1.

not Samson

In the land of the hair-pullers, the bald man is king ~ vid ~Nah, this isn’t an end-of-the-world item. It’s just a feel-good/schadenfreude/hair-joke post; but I mean, maaan, I hate thieves.
