CNN reporter Lucy Pawle went live on the news network Saturday afternoon with a heckuva scoop: someone had brought an ISIS flag to London’s Gay Pride march!
Arguing the Pride banner was “a clear attempt to mimic ISIS,” Pawle reported from the scene:
“In fact, it looks like it could be gobbledegook. But it’s very distinctively the ISIS flag. I seem to be the only person who has spotted this, and nobody seems to be raising any questions or pointing it out.”
Well, now we know why nobody else was raising any questions about the flag. If you look really closely (OK, let’s be honest, you don’t have to look that close at all), you’ll see the flag clearly isn’t made up of Arabic characters, but rather images of sex toys!!!
Ohhhhh yes! LOLz!
Apparently Ms. Pawle hasn’t been to a Pride event before, or she might realize (a) what some of these sex toys look like, and (b) how tongue-in-cheek stuff is totally cool during the march!
Ch-ch-check out Pawle’s HIGHlarious “scoop” (below):
Not surprisingly, the report has already been scraped from CNN’s website.
And also not surprisingly, Twitter ate it all up:
CNN looking at an ISIS-mocking dildo flag and taking it seriously is the second-best flag news this month
