    W-w-what?

    'I'm going to destroy America and dig up Marilyn Monroe': British pair arrested in U.S. on terror charges over Twitter jokes
    So - didn't they attempt to explain themselves, were then heard out, and the whole thing abandoned as a merry mix-up?
    much more, with pictures of the "desperadoes" and a sidebar with words deemed "sensitive" by DHS, at Daily Mail link above

    Reading paranoid garbage like that, one would hardly think politically-correct America could ever have been home to the James Gang or Bill The Kid. What IS this nation coming to?

    I am glad that all serious threats to the security of US citizens have now been ruled out and the authorities have got nothing better to do than to do quality control on Twitter jokes.

    No, wait...
