Great Moments in Pop Culture

Johnny Knoxville must be ecstatic:

Soldiers in Tijuana have detained three suspected drug assassins with uniforms featuring a skull above crossed crutches, apparently patterned after the logo of the "Jackass" television show and movies.

The men are suspected of working for a Mexican cartel operator nicknamed "Muletas," or "Crutches."

The 15 black uniforms found in the men's SUV in Tijuana, across the border from San Diego, had arm patches with the logo and the slogan, "Muletas Special Forces."

No word yet on whether these guys were videotaping their own hits, but MTV América Latina has reportedly asked for a pitch meeting.

Anyway, the Spanish word for jackass is burro, so obviously they were trying to suck up to us for some reason.
