Be The 93rd Caller Win A Grenade!


AFP  No luxury cruise but a ticket to jihad was the prize for the winners of a team quiz organised by Somalia’s insurgent Shebab group during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.  “The reason the young men were rewarded with weapons is to encourage them to participate in the ongoing holy war against the enemies of Allah in Somalia,” Sheikh Abdullahi Alhaq said at a ceremony late Friday.  The radio-broadcast quiz organised by the Al-Qaeda-inspired Shebab organisation in the southern Somali city of Kismayo lasted throughout Ramadan, which ended last month.  Five neighbourhoods of the port city entered the competition, which consisted mainly of questions on science, culture and the Koran.  The winners — a team from Farjano district — were given a first prize consisting of one AK-47 assault rifle, two hand grenades, an anti-tank landmine and office supplies at a ceremony attended by hundreds of residents.


This is bullshit…our radio stations only give away fucking Taylor Swift tickets.  I gotta ask though what are the office supplies for?  These guys doing a lot of copying before suicide bombings?  Running out of paper are they?  Or are the office supplies being used to disguise the weapons?  Kinda like when an 18 year old goes to buy a shitload of booze and then throws a pack of gum on top of the 30 packs to try and distract the cashier.  Something tells me no amount of toner and staples is going to get people away from the AK’s and grenades but I respect the effort.
