Be reasonable. Iron Dome? You can get a deal on aluminum foil!

[Phone rings]
Construction Loan Department: Hello... Iron Dome financing? Come, come now. Be reasonable. Iron Dome? Too expensive... Too heavy... It'll rust.

Think it through. Why would I finance you to do such a fool hearty thing? Even if your citizens would allow you to put up such a monstrosity over their little country, it would rust away & fall... The Iron Curtain? I lost my shirt on that one. No collateral. No resale... Are you kidding me? Rusted wreck... The war never came... Complete waste.

Iron Dome won't work!... Listen to me. I'll get ayou deal on aluminum foil! Yea... Aluminum foil!... Hey, it was good enough for the Lunar Lander. Light weight. Easy to transport. Looked great in pictures!... Your saw the film, right?... Yea, Armstrong... I swear to you. People still believe it! [Smirk]

So, it's aluminum foil?... Great! How many of your 143,000 square kilometers do you wish to cover? Will you be purchasing extended form comprehensive coverage from our insurance department?
