Taliban: "We Just Wanted Yul Brynner Dancers"

Abdulkhel, Pakistan, April 12 - Local villagers took up arms against the local Taliban after the religious fighters kidnapped local transvestite dancers and shaved their heads. A two hour battle involving small arms and rockets ensued that ended with the Taliban taking more villagers prisoner. A local leader, known as an "Ulema" brokered a deal between the villagers and the Taliban that included the unusual provision that the transvestites put on an all Yul Brynner production of the Rogers and Hammerstein classic the King and I. The local "Ulema" who brokered the deal stated that the Taliban headquarters featured Yul Brynner posters and that the King and I was running in the background during the entire negotiation. The unusual provision calls for a two week run including two Friday matinees of the unusual all Yul Brynner production. The local "Ulema" said that the local Taliban leader was a very big Yul Brynner fan, that he called Brynner "the greatest actor to ever live" and that he himself had dreamt up the all Yul Brynner production and was insistent on showing it to the world. The Taliban leader said that the transvestites were the only actors within miles so kidnapping them and shaving their heads was his only option. The local "Ulema" also stated that he was "a fan of modern Jazz" and that if "I hear I Whistle a Happy Tune one more time I will throw myself down a well!"

Warning the above is satire, but only the part about Brynner and a certain Broadway musical.
Hat Tip to the Gateway Pundit who had a more reasonable take on this strange story, Yul Brenner was not actually mentioned in the reporting.

Many thanks again to Dr. Sanity for inclusion in her Carnival of Insanities.

"The King and I" is Yul Brynner's finest moment on the screen, and if this outrage doesn't get the leftwing GLBTV activist crowd behind the war effort, I just don't know what will!
