On his show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, commentator and comedian John Oliver recently compared Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu to Houdini. Speaking about the PM's changing position on a two state solution, Oliver said: "If he somehow escapes this, he should go on the road as Netanyahoudini: Words cannot hold him."

I'm not going to comment on the politics of all this, but I will say that I fully support the use of Houdini to call out politicians; a rich tradition that dates back to Houdini's own time. And a mock-up poster is always a plus.

  1. I saw that part and laughed SOOO HAAARD! X-D I was disappointed that the audience wasn't laughing quite as hard though. Come on people, that's comedy gold!
