Sailors

Fifteen British sailors arrested for straying into Iranian waters. 14 blokes and 1 woman. It doesn't take a genius to work out who was reading the bloody map.

Not bad, Chimp.

Who decides when is a good time to make jokes about sticky political situations or tragedies?

It is only the bold!

It was about a week after 9/11 (maybe 2) when The Onion ran a poster of Britney with a snake around her shoulders, dancing on the pile of rubble at the WTC. Caption: A Shattered Nation Longs to Care About Tired Bullshit Again.

Some things just have to be said.

Yes - I remember the Onion after 911, I thought that issue was brilliant. Didn't they do one with a headline that went something like "Hijackers surprised to find themselves in Hell" ?

Yes! I remember that.

Well - now the thing is winding down and the sailors are all going home. You timed it well.
