D'oh, D'oh, D'OH, D'OOOOOOH

Man faces 10 years in prison for downloading Simpsons porn | TV | Newswire | The A.V. Club:
Author Neil Gaiman had one of the best responses to the 2008 case, saying that the court had “just inadvertently granted human rights to cartoon characters,” and that “the ability to distinguish between fiction and reality is, I think, an important indicator of sanity, perhaps the most important. And it looks like the Australian legal system has failed on that score.” It remains to be seen how a U.S. court will react during Kutzner’s January 2011 sentencing. In the meantime, if you value your own job, resist the temptation to Google “Simpsons porn” right now. (Or if you do, stick to the Homer-and-Marge stuff, we guess.)
I just don't get it.
