Offensive Cartoons + Flags = Profit!!!!

Am I the only one seeing this? Surely the creative minds of Hollywood could crank out a limitless amount of offensive fare and our once thriving textile industry could hum again in the production of Danish, Israeli and US flags. We could even have them made out of environmentally friendly hemp. Are we going to shortly find out a Bush crony is a flag magnate?


All Herzog, all the time

One day after news broke of his pulling Joaquin Phoenix from a wrecked car, Werner Herzog was shot in the belly during an interview with a journalist from the BBC. All was well, as it was an air rifle that got him, but his reaction is priceless:

HOLLYWOOD - German director Werner Herzog was shot by a crazed fan during a recent interview with the BBC.

The 63-year-old was chatting with movie journalist Mark Kermode about his documentary Grizzly Man, when a sniper opened fire with an air rifle.

Kermode explains, "I thought a firecracker had gone off.

"Herzog, as if it was the most normal thing in the world, said, 'Oh, someone is shooting at us. We must go.'

"He had a bruise the size of a snooker ball, with a hole in. [sic] He just carried on with the interview while bleeding quietly in his boxer shorts."

An unrepentant Herzog insisted, "It was not a significant bullet. I am not afraid."
Two notes: I'm not sure what Werner should be repentant for, and does anyone know what a snooker ball is?
