A new hostage-taking was announced today, but it seems our jihadist friends may have been reduced to threatening to behead G.I. Joe dolls:

True, it will probably turn out that this was done by some teenager with too much time on his hands, not by real jihadists [are we still supposed to call them "insurgents" after Sunday? I have not yet received the memo] who actually expected this to work, but still. This is sublimely hilarious, and I'm still a little high from the vote, so what the hell.
