Shelling out big bucks to see – Tea Sucking Surrender Monkeys: The Movie!
That's right, folks, it's official. The ironically named "Ministry of Defense" has lifted the ban that has prevented other Brits who have been injured and killed in the Iraq war from profiting from their experiences and given permission to the recently former capitulators, henceforth to be known as SPF-15*, to sell their stories.
But there's a very good reason for their doing it according to the Sunday Times:
"MoD officials claimed that the move to lift the ban on military personnel selling their stories while in service was justified because of the “exceptional circumstances” of the case. The hostages are expected to earn as much as £250,000 between them."
Rumors are flying that Rosie O'Donnell is being considered for the role of Faye Turney, the only female hostage, but there's concern that Ms. O'Donnell may bring too much strength to the character.
And it's been confirmed that two of the Royal Marines will be portrayed by Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.
