Every time I think I've heard one of the more idiotic things ever

I find that I just wasn't waiting long enough. Remember the Zionist Attack Sharks? Well,
A vulture tagged by scientists at Tel Aviv University has strayed into Saudi Arabian territory, where it was promptly arrested on suspicion of being a Mossad spy, Israeli and Saudi media reported Tuesday.

The bird was found in a rural area of the country wearing a transmitter and a leg bracelet bearing the words "Tel Aviv University", according to the reports, which surfaced first in the Israeli daily Ma'ariv.

Although these tags indicate that the bird was part of a long-term research project into migration patterns, residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia's Al-Weeam newspaper that the matter seemed to be a "Zionist plot."

The accusations went viral, with hundreds of posts on Arabic-language websites and forums claiming that the "Zionists" had trained these birds for espionage.
And with visions of "I'm gonna find a baby bumblebee..."* floating through my mind, I'll leave this.

The vulture isn't as far fetched to the Saudis as you'd expect.

There is a passage somewhere in that chloroform on paper that they believe is the infallible "word 'a G-d", about King Solomon fielding a combined army of men, djinn and birds.

It doesn't take much to give them "black helicopter" thoughts.

I'm guessing that no one has cashed in on the idea of tin foil lined head rags yet.
