Apparently someone creating a collage of Osama bin Laden to sell as a poster inadvertently copied a picture from the now-defunct humor website Bert is Evil, which contains photos of Bert posing with notorious villains. Angry demonstrators, oblivious to the presence of a certain Sesame Street character, displayed the posters at anti-American rallies. Check it out:
