Robin Williams entertaining the troops with a raunchy routine at Baghdad International Airport on Tuesday as part of a tour of U.S. bases in Iraq. Other celebrities turning up included actress Shannon Tweed, wrestler Curt Angle and stock car driver Mike Wallace." Nice to see that they did their research ...

Sad that they got it so wrong though... I mean, especially since he actually WAS at some point a legit athelete. Seems like the black hole that is pro wrestling killed him for the rest of the world.

And those are from diehard WRESTLING FANS! If we can't do research, how can we expect a third-world news organization to? Tribal Prophet Wrestling exists in the eternal present.

I'd be more upset that they misspelled "athlete," myself... But in all seriousness, I think people named "Curtis" tend to go by "Curtis," while "Kurt" is the more common spelling of....well...Kurt.

There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who know binary, and those who don't.
