Brickbat: What Are You Laughing At?

A court in the
United Arab Emirates has sentenced Shezanne Cassim to one year in
prison and a fine of $2,700 for posting
a parody video
 to the Internet. Cassim’s video poked fun
at local youth who have adopted American hip hop style. Authorities
have refused to say exactly what law the video broke, but Cassim’s
family say he was charged with endangering national security.
