Assange Escape
Will it be by car, by balloon, by jetpack?

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

It’s the question on every WikiLeaks watcher’s mind: Just how will Julian Assange get himself out of his hideaway at the Ecuadorean embassy in London and make his way to freedom without getting nobbled by bobbies or renditioned all the way to Gitmo?

No WikiWatcher is keener than M Cetera, who runs the This Day in WikiLeaks website—rounding up the latest news on Assange, leaks, media, and Manning—and who created this infographic GIF. It’s been cross-posted to the fan art-focused Julian Artssange Tumblr, where it’s had nine notes.

Irish betting site Paddypower is giving odds on various ways Assange might leave the embassy (wait, no “human cannonball” option?) and M Cetera has animated the most … animated options in classic 8-bit style, for your viewing and betting pleasure.

For now Assange remains in his Knightsbridge bedsit, and only a sucker would bet on when he might leave, let alone how.
