A new reality show
in Iraq features "police" stopping celebrities at checkpoints where
they find "bombs" in the cars, only to reveal, after the accused freak
out a while, that they were just kidding. Surprise! You're on Candid
Camera! Only this time it's called "Put Him in Camp Bucca,"
a profoundly unfunny U.S.-built prison! But ha ha anyway! Public
reaction to the show has been...mixed. Is this what happens when people
have been at war too long?
