Published Jun 29, 2018The endless rivalry between former Blink-182 band buddies Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge apparently continues as both men attempt to use their pop-punk cred to ultimately change the world.
We know full well that DeLonge is a legit UFO hunter, and now Hoppus has revealed his more down-to-earth approach to saving humanity. Specifically, Hoppus says he advised a U.S. navy admiral on capturing Saddam Hussein.
In response to the Twitter question of "what's the least plausible story about yourself that's true?" Hoppus detailed the time he offered his advice on how to capture Hussein.
Read his plot in full below.
On an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, I told a Navy Admiral on his way to meet with the Joint Chiefs of Staff my ideas on how to capture Saddam Hussein. https://t.co/KsKmZM4DXo— snddoɥ ʞɹɐɯ (@markhoppus) June 26, 2018
Unfortunately, the navy missed out on what we certainly would have dubbed "Operation Sad-Dammit" and instead went through with Operation Red Dawn.
