This one is creepy. Bert (of Sesame Street fame) is talking to evil terrorist mastermind and all around bad guy Osama bin Laden on what appears to be posters used during pro-Taliban rallies in the Middle-East.

If you look at these pictures you can clearly see just below the left ear of the large central picture of bin Laden our old friend Bert.

The PDJ has tracked down three different pictures of this poster. The first one is on a Dutch site. PDJ archive. The second one is a Reuters pictures on Yahoo. PDJ archive. And the final one is on a web site owned by a Swedish lawyer heavily involved with ICANN issues. PDJ archive

I've closely examined all of these pictures of the poster and I'm unable to declare them forgeries. Not that I'm an expert at photo interpretation, but if these are forgeries, they are extremely well done.

I also believe that we've located the original source picture of Bert and bin Laden that was cropped into the poster here. PDJ archive This site (on hosted by angelfire) consists mainly of historical pictures of well known people and Bert. A strange fetish to be sure, but not as strange as some.

Quitely frankly, I'm not sure what to make of this. Did the supporters of bin Laden really carry around a sign with Bert apparently whispering into the ear of their hero at a rally? Or is this some extremely well thought out and executed Internet hoax?

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
