Listen to the link. I can't believe this is real. Part of me remains a bit sceptical, but people in Iraq are dying for plenty of stupid reasons, so this shouldn't be too far fetched....

I wouldn't trust the media now if they said ice was cold.

"John Hendren is wrapping up the latest of more than a dozen visits to the war zone since early 2003"

Meaning that he was roaming around over there BEFORE the war.

Another of Saddam's useful idiots like the ones at CNN who admit to knowing of abuses and torture under Saddam Hussein but kept quiet to maintain their Baghdad bureau?

The very fact that it is perfectly possible shows how bizarre the whole killing sprees are and the pretexts for for them.

Mind you I remember in art college 2 clowns indulging in an animation set in a fruit market. But they were 17 years olds and given a 'talking to' by the year tutor. They were not summarily executed. Anyway nowadays it would be hailed as art.

The story also says that goats are required to wear panties -- otherwise they are too sexually suggestive.

I wouldn't buy water from them if I was on fire.

Well, to some of these folks, maybe they are.

“Shepherds in the rural western Baghdad neighborhood of [?] have recently been murdered, according to locals, for failing to diaper their goats. Apparently the sexual tension is so high in regions where sheikhs take a draconian view of sharia law, that they feel the sight of naked goats poses an unacceptable temptation.” ”

Hmmmmmmmm.

It's difficult to make the case that the USA is making progress with these types of stories becoming more common.

This is the best part of that link, especially given the events of the last few days:

On August 21, 1962 SINA reached a high point when it was featured on the CBS news with Walter Cronkite. As the segment was airing, a few CBS employees recognized that Prout was actually Buck Henry. Henry was, after all, a CBS employee.

No one will know
If you don’t want to let them know
No one will know
’Less it’s you that might tell ’em so

Call and they’ll come to you
Covered with dew
Vegetables dream
Of responding to you

Standing there shiny and proud by your side
Holding your hand while the neighbors decide
Why is a vegetable something to hide?

.
Call Any Vegetable.
