shades of Bagdad Bob

  1. Do Iraqi's have a talent for unintentional humor? Reporters were questioning a bystander about yesterdays shooting of SH's supporters. He was told that American soldiers had claimed they had been shot at first. The bystander said (in good English I might ad) "They held up pictures of naked women so we had to shoot first." I had to suppress a snicker. I had to remind myself that children had been killed and injured. It was not supposed to be funny.
