    British tourists imprisoned and deported from US… for Twitter jokes

    1984 doesn't seem that far-fetched after all!
    -------

    If the decomposed corpse of Marilyn Monroe is robbed from the grave, the terrorists have won.

    Authorities in America take threats seriously, and when it comes to Hollywood royalty nearly 50 years past their expiration date, the feds don’t kid around. So when a would-be British tourist joked about digging up the body of famed Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe, US officials, to say the least, were not amused.

    The attempts at humor were posted on the Twitter account of Leigh Van Bryan, 26, which somehow managed to make its way to the US Department of Homeland Security at the same time the British resident’s plane arrived at Los Angeles International Airport. When Van Bryan and his 24-year-old traveling companion arrived at LAX last week, feds were waiting for them.

    It turns out that they didn’t think the whole grave robbing joke was that funny.

    It was two tweets that had DHS riled up. The first was one in which Van Bryan joked that he was going to “destroy” America, which he explained to authorities was British slang for partying. The second message, perhaps a bit more straightforward, said that the two had plans to hang out on Hollywood Boulevard, an event that would be topped off by “diggin’ Marilyn Monroe up!”

    In this case the Merkins might be right.

    Here are the 2 British tourists on Blackpool beach just prior to departure.

    Hardly surprising the lack of sense of humour, when English only just beat German as the choice for the national language.

    if you mean the usa got frightened and caused a huge deluge of cash to be wasted as it pissed away its global rep in iraq and squeezed weaker countries to rally around (uk, aus, etc) as well as the lost lives and limbs...i agree whole-heartedly.

    bin laden changed many many things.
