Dutch "Comedy" Show Makes Fun of Drummer Rigby Getting Butchered at the Hands of Jihadis

If, as that old saying goes, comedy is tragedy plus time (meaning that you can make fun of almost any tragic event so long as you don't do it right away and allow enough time to elapse), then this has yet--and may even never--make the transition:
The controversial Dutch television show has screened a comedy sketch about the brutal butchering of soldier Lee Rigby.  
Langs De Leeuw, which last week showed the host sucking milk directly from a young mother's breasts, appeared to make light of the gruesome murder in Woolwich in a spoof Eurovision Song Contest sketch.  
 The sketch showed two men who had been dressed to resemble Drummer Rigby's alleged killers Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale -  waving bloody knives and cleavers at the cameras...
Hilarious it ain't.

Sick. Disgusting. Emblematic of Western decadence: absolutely.

But a laugh riot?

Not by the longest of long shots.
