Yale dental students, professor busted over “selfie” w/ severed heads


Who knew ISIS had a satellite campus in Connecticut?

In a rather gruesome stab at humor, an orthodontics professor and “several” students at Yale University have been popped by school officials after a selfie of the prof and students supposedly posing with two severed heads came to the officials attention.

As reported by Britain’s The Daily Mail;

The selfie, which was taken in June at the Yale School of Medicine during a training workshop, has been described by Yale officials as ‘disturbing’ and ‘inexcusable’.

Dr Flavio Uribe was one of the people in the photo. He is a top University of Connecticut orthodontics professor and a visiting associate professor at the Yale School of Medicine.

In the photo, Uribe and several graduate students are looking at the camera, while others continue to work. All are wearing surgical masks and the two severed heads are on tables, face up.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the photo from a person who received it through a private group chat.

But that person, who demanded anonymity because of potential harm to their career, said the person who took the selfie did not give permission for it to be published for fear of being expelled.

As it turns out, Dr Uribe and his students in question just may be the victim of a drive-by selfie-ista;

Dr Uribe said he was teaching students how to place screws in the cadaver heads at the time during the 2017 DePuy Synthes Future Leaders Workshop, which focused on dental-related facial deformities.

He said at one point, someone took a photo.

‘Somebody unfortunately took a photo,’ Uribe said. ‘It was so quick. I wasn’t sure of the surroundings or scenery at that point.’

Officials at Yale and UConn Health said the universities have taken steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Please share on Facebook and Twitter, especially if you think Dr Uribe is unjustly taking heat.

Miss Israel selfie: Miss Iraq flees after death threats


Sarah Idan and her entire family have been forced to leave their Baghdad home due to their daughter daring to pose with a selfie with a Jewish woman.

As reported by the New York Post;

So much for diplomacy by selfie.

Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, and her family had to flee their homeland after receiving death threats over a photo she posted online last month.

Why? Because Idan posed with Miss Israel, Adar Gandelsman, at a Miss Universe International Beauty Pageant, the Times of Israel reported.

Idan came under fire for posting the photo to Instagram, captioned, “Peace and Love from Miss Iraq and Miss Israel,” in addition to modeling a bikini.

“The two of those things together caused a mess for her back home where people made threats against her and her family that if she didn’t return home and take down the photos, they would remove her (Miss Iraq) title, that they would kill her,” Gandelsman told Israeli TV, the paper reported.

Miss Iraq 2016.

Not the first time a Miss Iraq has had to deal with death threats.

Miss Iraq 2016, Shaima Qassem Abdulrahman, was also threatened this time last year by none other than ISIS.

In a land where kidnapped is synonymous with butchered to death, Shaima Qassem Abdulrahman understands completely what was meant in a recent phone call.

As reported by Kuwait’s al-Watan news via The Jerusalem Post, the pretty 20-year-old was threatened not long after being the first woman crowned Miss Iraq in almost half a century.

Within hours of being named as Iraq’s representative to the 2016 Miss Universe contest, she “received a threatening phone call in which she was warned that if she refused to join the ranks of the Islamic State movement she would be kidnapped.”

The Prune and the Danish

Wonder Woman knows...
Wonder Woman knows…

Oh, yes he di’id!

As just about the entire Western World already knows by now, Barack Obama’s public appearance at the tribute to South Africa’s Nelson Mandela included a well photographed selfie-session with Denmark’s leggy leader.

If facial expressions are any indication of what thoughts may be swirling in one’s mind, Mr. Obama’s happy-happy moments with Madame Prime Minister were much to the apparent chagrin of First Lady Michelle Obama, as reported by Fox News on Dec. 11, 2013.
