George Clooney and the Pooses for Peace Spokes-poose Zevo hussein Calamari were arrested today outside of the Sudanese embassy in Washington D.C.
Reports just came in that several Pooses for Peace members, Miss Lucy Fur, Nubi wan Kenobi, Mz Smudge, M. hussein Monkay, Prima Ballerina Luna Miso Poosie and at least 200 other felines along with Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), former Rep. Tom Andrews (D-Maine), Nick Clooney (the actor's father), NAACP President Ben Jealous and Martin Luther King III were also taken into custody at the scene. Reports that a Schuanzer wearing a Che Guevara beret along with a newfie mix with the code name Poopalina were also seen being paw-cuffed.
The arrests were anticipated and part of the actor's effort to draw attention to the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. The actor, his father and politicians were protesting the country's blockade of supplies and humanitarian aide. Clooney was reportedly handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cab. Several cats sat on their laps while others were tossed in a paddy wagon. Later the paddy wagon had to be fumigated and a bio-hazard team brought in to attempt to remove the horrid stench.
"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children," Clooney's publicist said in a statement published by TMZ. "They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."
Clooney and the founders of the Pooses for Peace have been friends for years. Rumor has it he dated the infamous Miss Boo and broke her heart. This is said to be the reason why she ran off with Captain Jack Sparrow and now lives on a remote island.
Clooney is in Washington DC to celebrate the season of Zevomas, a month long tribute to Zevo hussein Calamari's birthday. The Pooses for Peace relocated their headquarters to Washington DC this fall from Salem MA which is said to have a dictator mayor who wears an ill-fitting black suit.
No word if Clooney and the cats have been released yet from jail. However an unconfirmed source reports seeing a catering truck with bottles of limoncello, large cans of tuna and salmon being carried into the prison.
