Here at Comedy Central Insider, we tend to take our ability to tell terrible jokes for granted. It's because we live in a country where we have the right to blog freely about poop without fear of prosecution and where freedom of speech (about poop) is not only tolerated, but encouraged.
Unfortunately, there are still places in the world where merely highlighting the differences between Kayin monks and Rakhine monks (and the way they poop) can land you in jail for the rest of your life.
A court in military-ruled Burma has sentenced a popular comedian and pro-democracy activist to 45 years in prison.
Authorities detained Maung Thura – known by his stage name, Zarganar – earlier this year after he organized private aid deliveries to victims of Cyclone Nargis.
Keep fighting the good fight, Zarganar. The most agitating that we've ever had to do was for fluffier flannel bottoms. But all of us at Insider sincerely hope that you and your poop get sprung soon.
