Frenchmen Set Fire to Eiffel Tower to Signal Surrender to Boy Scout Troop

From the guad:)spot blog, but appreciated by me:

Smoke billowing from Eiffel Tower!

Frenchmen set fire to the tower to signal their surrender to an American Boy Scout troop touring through France this morning. The boys were apparently overheard by a French Government official who reported that they were planning a “military strike” and using “coded transmissions…” Later it was discoverd the boys were playing the popular video game Command and Conquer on their GameBoys, and had no intention of taking France by force.
