One of the more disastrously misheard lyrics we can think of took place yesterday, when 19-year-old Ambridge, Pennsylvania high school student Travis Clawson missed an optometry appointment, causing the office’s receptionist to call him. He didn’t answer, his voicemail message playing instead, in which Clawson rapped the intro lyrics to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Unfortunately, she critically misheard a sequence in the rap — “chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool and all, shooting some b-ball outside of the school” — hearing instead “shooting some people outside of the school.” She promptly called the police, who then called the school district, and as nobody was quite sure where Clawson was, the whole district was put on lockdown. He was eventually found in his high school’s guidance office, and the confusion was explained, though James Mann, the acting police chief, urged Clawson’s parents to make him change the outgoing message. Clawson’s father was unhappy with the entire ordeal: “An innocent young man was embarrassed. How is he supposed to go back to school and face his classmates?” source

We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping. We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid • On the manpower and resources the Taliban plan to divert towards accomplishing their new top priority: killing Britain’s Prince Harry. Only two weeks removed from his naked escapades in a Las Vegas hotel, the 27-year-old British royal is now flying helicopters in Afghanistan. For what it’s worth, the head of NATO forces in the region isn’t particularly worried about young Harry’s health. ”We do everything we can to protect all our troops deployed to Afghanistan ,” said Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, adding, “Whatever might be their personal background.”

The Muslim Brotherhood can’t even penetrate the Egyptian government.
Ibrahim Ali Iraqi, Muslim Brotherhood leader from Egypt’s Daqheleya province  • Denying allegations, brought forward by Rep. Michele Bachmann and four other members of Congress, that Hillary Clinton’s deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin has infiltrated the U.S. government on behalf of the Brotherhood. Bachmann stands by her questioning of Abedin’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, even after top members of the Republican Party spoke out against her. The New York Post also reports that Mrs. Abedin has been placed under federal protection following a death threat from a New Jersey resident. source (viafollow)

Phil — Just a quick note to encourage you to do the right thing and shoot yourself in the head. Don’t waste any more time, do it today. It is truly the greatest contribution to life that you will ever make.
A note sent to climate scientist Phil Jones • Suggesting he kill himself for his work on climate change. Jones, a scientist at the center University of East Anglia, was one of the people at the center of “Climategate,” a controversy that climate change skeptics used to call into question the basic tenets of climate change. Journalist James Delingpole, one of the skeptics who spearheaded Climategate, called into question the idea that Jones got death threats, so an environmentalist checked with the university — and got back eight pages worth of death threats. Wowza.

Even ones by 10-year-olds. Here’s a story that may have gotten below your radar: Apparently a 10-year-old boy in Atlantic City (who isn’t being named) called the George W. Bush presidential library and left a death threat for the former president. While charges won’t be filed, the Secret Service did give the kid a good talking-to. The crazy part of this clip is the person-on-the-street interviews, including the lady who inexplicably brought up the local school’s “no bullying” policy. Seriously, what was he going to do? He’s 10 years old and lives in Jersey, and Bush lives in Texas.
