This is not funny

. . . except for one thing: the name of the guerrillas involved. You can read the story here, but I'll fast forward to the funny part for you. The English name for the group involved in this (quite violent and sad) story is abbreviated as MILF. And I did not make up that acronym - it is taken directly from the BBC themselves.

Perhaps I'm feeling particularly sophmoric and/or snarky. But when I heard the story on NPR BBC news this morning...I started cracking up. Because really? In my pre-coffee stupor, the idea of MILF guerrillas was hilarious. I can always count on the BBC for a good laugh . . .
