Skinny Puppy demand their fee

Having discovered that their music was being used in Guantanamo as part of - remind me, what's the current sanitised phrase for 'torture' they're using at the moment? - Skinny Puppy have sent a bill:

"We heard through a reliable grapevine that our music was being used in Guantanamo Bay prison camps to musically stun or torture people," founder cEvin Key told the Phoenix New Times. "We heard that our music was used on at least four occasions."

"So we thought it would be a good idea to make an invoice to the US government for musical services," Key added.
The surprise is that the team from PRS - who I'd assumed had left no business unbothered for one of their licences - hadn't yet made it to Cuba to insist that the US Military get a little sticker for the door.
