We pick on right-wing propagandists FOX News a lot around here but sometimes you get a story that's so insane, even they're amazed by it.

Terrible things happen every day (like the MMVAs hosting the Jonas Brothers) but thousands of brave Iranians in the streets are proving you don't have to be afraid of the dark.
