This Is Real Picture

It's an AP Photo, so I can't show you the full thing. I'm kinda hoping that I can show you a heavily-cropped version, though. From the continued anti-Danish outrage in Pakistan, we learn what a real picture of Denmark looks like:

The resemblance is striking, ain't it?

Priceless, as always. For those of you who are still keeping count, this makes for roughly three months of continual anti-Danish outrage in Pakistan.

Don't they have anything more constructive to do with their time over there?

If you're in the mood for some excellent Rage Runners-Up, be sure to keep reading beyond the fold!Some runners-up: Also closely cropped for maximum legal protection. First, a look at what my "holy father's" are teaching me:

I eat dis-hearting for breakfast around here.

And lastly, someone else who is really mad:

Assume the traditional Howard Dean Pose.™

Chanting "Down with Denmark" and "Down with the Netherlands," hundreds of Sunni Muslims protested in Karachi on Saturday against a film critical of Islam and over the reprinting of a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad, local media reported.

As always, if you're a Corporate Lawyerly type and have an issue with my use of these extremely cropped images—Hello there, Priti!—just drop me an e-mail, and I'll fix things for you.

I'm pretty sure the Pakistani government pays them to be there...so it's a financial incentive for them to "protest".

Perhaps there's an additional stipend for "best sign".

I'm taking the second guys advice. If a telemarketer calls, I'm hanging up till death the bloody.

Hey Kevin, that is the second most popular show in Afghanistan. "Death The Bloody".

It is funny, satirical yet thought-provoking.

It is kind of like the show Seinfeld here in USA. Except the character Newman has to be replaced every other episode cause he just looks like an evil westerner (thus the reason for the animosity between he and the Seinfeld-like character) and thus must be decapitated every so often.

I try to watch it when I can.

BTW, is that the Lion King's kid under the old white guy's left armpit???
