Generally F*cked Up News of The Day

It's sometimes tempting to think of America as a heavily-armed Disney World - a nation of adult children voraciously consuming cartoons, cinnabuns, reality tv... and uppity foreigners that challenge our hegemony. Think: stormtroopers with Mickey Mouse ears, Pluto crossed with Kujo. And what better illustration could there be than this?

Two days after members of the Navy's SEAL Team 6 killed Osama bin Laden, Disney trademarked the name for use in, among other things, "Christmas tree ornaments."

Yup. Before Osama's corpse even hit the ocean floor, those bright sparks at Disney had already staked their claim. Creepy. Weird.
