Recently a famous American television star has been seen giving support to the terrorist Osama bin Laden...

I can't reveal his name here... it's just too shocking...

Read the news story at FoxNews.com...

I just can't believe it...
-Nate

P.S. - I thought someone on here said there was no Internet access in Afghanistan...

I saw that on a Dutch news site a couple of days ago. It's very bizarre, I really don't know what to make of it. Surely respectable news photographers don't doctor their pics?

They swear that they didn't. It looks like someone stuck the picture in the original collage, and the folks that were having it re-printed either didn't notice it, or didn't recognize what it was.

Oh well he was always the more intense and uptight one of the two... maybe he has reasons - being buried up over his head in the sand at the beach by Ernie my have been a cause...
very very sad though

Okay, maybe whoever made that poster doesn't know who (or what) Bert is. But I still don't get it: suppose you are making a poster of the person who you consider to be your spiritual leader. After a while you stand back to admire your handiwork... and you see a funny yellow doll.
I mean... wouldn't you do something about it ?! I guess it just goes to show that fanaticism makes you lose sight of everything around you .

Supposedly they made the sign out of a collage of pictures they found on the Internet. There is supposed to be another one in the collage that shows him holding a bottle of Jack Daniels, but I haven't see it.
This kinda reminds me of the Baghdad Betty episode during the Gulf War. Baghdad Betty was what they called the woman who was the voice for Iraqi propaganda radio that was broadcast to the allies from Iraq. During one of her rants, she is widely reported to have told the American troops "wives and girlfriends back in the United States are having sex with movie stars like Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, and Bart Simpson!".
