R.I.P., Mickey Mouse Lookalike

This just in from the AP:

A Mickey Mouse lookalike who preached Islamic domination on a Hamas-affiliated children's television program was beaten to death in the show's final episode Friday. In the final skit, "Farfour" was killed by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour's land. At one point, the mouse called the Israeli a "terrorist."

"Farfour was martyred while defending his land," said Sara, the teen presenter. He was killed "by the killers of children," she added...

Station officials said Friday that Farfour was taken off the air to make room for new programs. Station manager Mohammed Bilal said he did not know what would be shown instead.

An afternoon casting session scheduled by Hamas to find a SpongeBob Squarepants lookalike has reportedly been canceled due to a general unwillingness among available actors to be beaten to death on a children's program.
