Danny Kaye puts confusion in perspective

I'm showing my age here, but the whole confused and confusing mess about who produced the spoof ("Innocence of Muslims") that is currently provoking outrage and violence in several Middle Eastern countries reminded me of actor Danny Kaye's schtick in the 1956 musical comedy, "The Court Jester." Danny Kaye had a hard time getting things straight and, as of now, news organizations are tying themselves in similar knots in an attempt to get a bead on the 'who' and 'why' of the spoof.
