Everybody pile on Rebecca for daring to differ while there are terrorists in the world...

I'm not sure which is worse, that or the DoD anthrax site. Still, I want a t-shirt.

Why, because they have a sense of humour?

The Taliban doesn't, and they're jerks eight ways to Sunday.

If Bin Laden were more inclined to laughter, and less to bitter invective, the world might be a little calmer these days...

Apparently they're saying that ninja gingerbread men are a huge terrorist threat.

I should have seen that coming.

They and their friends, the flying elves have been terrorizing me for years!

is this somebody's idea of a psy-op?
terrorists shudder in dread as they contemplate the mad photoshop skillz of the universally pheered cia.

CIA meeting:

"All right, all right, think slogan... think cool... think taking over New York City via a big building. Ghost Busters! Brilliant! City ralleys around a misfit bunch of nerds, city gains spirit... nerds become heroes! It's our story"

From now on, Osama bin Laden will be referred to as "Zuul" in all government correspondence and memoranda.

Hey Kids! Try some disguises!


My favorite is the "arrow through the head." Yeah, you'd be surprised how many terrorists the CIA comes across while looking for bad Steve Martin impressions.

Did everyone miss Bezuhin's post? The DOD site he links to is pretty amazing. I actually found myself grooving to the music. Brings back fond memories of "All Your Base Are Belong to Us". Here's the lyrics of that for those of you who forget. Kinda odd to read again in our new warring context:

What happen somebody
Set up us the bomb
We get signal what main
Screen turn on turn on
It's you it's you how are
You you gentlemen

All your base all your base
Are belong to us

You are on the way to
Way to destruction
What you say you have no
Chance chance to survive
Make your time make your time
HA HA HA HA HA
Take off every zig you
Know what you doing
Move zig move zig move zig
For for great justice

All your base all your base
Are belong to us

Yeah, Kafkaesque! It could be the next All Your...

Base...

Kill me right now, please.
