Almost immediately after Brian Williams admitted that he was not on a helicopter that was shot down by an RPG in Iraq, people were buzzing and chatting about the NBC news head. While many were determined to see punishment doled out, essentially in the form of Williams losing his jobs, others saw it as an opportunity to have a little fun at the expense of the scandal.
