: : News references to at least one of the pictures from the Iraqi prison abuse stories repeatedly refer to a "human pyramid". To me it just looks like a heap or pile of five or six bodies. Do you see a "pyramid" in these pictures. Does "human pyramid" mean something more than just a heap of bodies? Did some newswire create "human pyramid" and the phrase just spread?

: Cheerleaders form pyramids. See images at the bottom of http://cheergyms.com/illusions/gallery/gallery2.htm

Acrobats also form human pyramids, as do other groups, including motorcycle display teams.
