In this warped variant of stealth disco
, you strike the cigarette-dangling-from-mouth, finger-points-at-exposed-prisoner-genitalia pose made famous by Pfc. Lynndie England in Abu Ghraib torture photos. As a website devoted to Stealth Lynndie-ing explains, "The image has shocked, sickened and outraged people. But more importantly, it has captured the imagination of young men and women up and down the country who don't give much of a shit about anything."
I'm not sure what's more disturbing about this online photo gallery -- (a) the fact that people are sick enough do this, photograph this, publish it on the web, and think it's funny; (b) the fact that I'm blogging about it, or (c) the fact that Lynndie England bears a striking resemblance to the fellow in the photo at left.

Update: BoingBoing reader Dave says, "This picture taken by Kefin Smith during the production of the movie Dogma proves that the first true 'Stealth Lynndie' occurred years before the atrocities at Abu Ghraib. Specifically, it occurred in the movie Dogma: here's the 'Buddy Christ' giving what appears to be a Stealth Lynndie to the camera. Link"
(Ed. note: Technically, He needs a lit cigarette in order for this to be considered an actual Stealth Lynndie -- but in light of the fact that the Lord prefers to smite instead of smoke, we will consider this an immaculate exception. Did we mention that as of 7:10pm PT, www.stealthlynndie.com remains available?)
