I don't know what is funnier, that the Islamo-Facists actually tried to pass off an action figure as a hostage, or that the US snooze media fell for it. I will say this though, it has provided for a great deal of humor on the blogosphere. Especially this hang-your-head-in-shame piece:
EtherHouse: Photo PROOF that captured "doll" is an actual American operative!.
You can also get a few chuckles at The Dawn Patrol, as well as The Curt Jester, Powerline and Scrappleface. I'm sure there's more out there, but it is still early and I have a bad cold.
Now, if they would be so kind to take Elmo and Sponge Bob and put them out of my misery.
