No CNN, that is not an Isis flag at Pride. It's a dildo flag

Posted by in offbeat

American news network CNN thought it had a world exclusive on an Isis flag being paraded through the streets of London during the annual Pride parade.

The "unnerving sight" in the anchor's words was spotted by CNN International reporter Lucy Pawle, who said she saw the flag being waved by a man near Regent's Street.

She said:

This man dressed in black and white was waving what appears to be a very bad mimicry but a very clear attempt to mimic the Isis flag, the black, white flag with the distinctive lettering.

If you look at the flag closely it's clearly not Arabic, in fact it looks like it could be gobbledygook, but it's very distinctive the Isis flag.

Anyway I seem to be the only person who has spotted this.


If you follow the reporter's advice and do indeed look at the flag closely you'll see that it's not Arabic, nor gobbledygook, but, um, butt plugs.
