I Must Be Going to the Wrong Sports Events
The defense lawyer for ex-Abu Ghraib guard Specialist Charles Graner "compared pictures of naked Iraqi prisoners in a human pyramid to cheerleaders at US sports events, who form pyramids "all over America". (Source: BBC)
Wow, there are piles of naked cheerleaders at sporting events all over America? No wonder football tickets are so expensive now!
Of course, this raises an interesting question: If US sporting events are littered with piles of naked cheerleaders in semi-sexual poses - why was Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" so shocking? Was she punished not because part of her body was uncovered but rather because the rest remained covered? Or was it the lack of sufficient numbers of naked cheerleaders in the picture?
