image for Wisconsin Union Protesters Somehow Wind Up in Libya

Through some strange mix-up, union protesters in Wisconsin have wound up in Libya and are scared to death.

"We were on our way to fly to Indianapolis to support the protest there as some from Indiana unions came to Madison to study our methods before they began protesting at home", stated one organizer. "But when we landed, we found ourselves in Libya. I just about shat my pants when we walked off the airplane and heard all the gunfire."

Another passenger to Libya told a reporter from BBC that they thought that the flight was a long one "but we thought there may have been another big snow and that we were circling a lot before landing".

In an interview on Al-Jazeera a lady carrying a sign "We support the protesters here!" broke down and cried after she was knocked to the ground by a rifle butt. "Then I had to run for my life after a tank almost ran over me."

Meanwhile the US is trying to get the people back home but say they have lost all contact with any officials in Libya.

"We were already placing our people from our embassy there and some tourists on two British boats and now we have over 200 people actually flown INTO Libya!", stated one official. I've been rubbing my fingers through my toupee until the glue has come off.

So what happens now?

A spokesman for President Obama says that they are doing all they can to get the strikers back. However, they have now learned that another flight with over 200 protesters headed for Indianapolis has landed in India.
