17 Things To Look At That Aren't Gaddafi Getting Murdered (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

So, here's the thing. Here at HuffPost Comedy, we're no experts on the delicate balance that is Middle Eastern power struggles, but it generally seems good that former Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi is no longer in power.

How do we know he's no longer in power? Well! If you haven't noticed, it's hard to turn around (on the Internet) without seeing graphic images of Gaddafi's final moments -- getting dragged and beaten, apparently being sodomized by his culprits and finally getting shot several times. All of it was captured on tape, and much of it has been easily accessible in the American media.

Maybe we're just softies, but we'd be just as happy not to see these graphic, disturbing images anymore. To cleanse our palate, we've collected 17 things that warm our heart and make us forget, just for a moment, that we might accidentally watch Gaddafi getting a bloody cavity search if we aren't careful.

We hope you agree!
