I want to call my parents and tell them that I’m considering going to Baghdad to be a “human shield”… Or, better yet, I could have one of my friends contact them. “Mrs. Maynard, I don’t know how to tell you this, but I’ve heard through Linette that Mark is in the process of booking a flight to France where he plans to meet up with a group of people who will be heading to Baghdad to be human shields.”
Why can’t I get this idea out of my head? And why do I find it so amusing?
