Bert is Still Evil

Even though it’s slightly old news, I still can’t get over the fact that a doctored image of Bert – yes, that Bert – posing with Osama bin Laden has appeared on posters made for bin Laden supporters.

It was later revealed that the posters were created simply by taking images from anywhere on the web – and the old Bert is Evil site (which is now gone, sadly) was one of those sites.

I guess I should start printing up those posters with pictures of Tony Blair and Elmo now…. -pm

This has been cracking me up for the last 24 hours... everytime I see a story about it, I can't help but laugh.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
