A Little Levity

(Warning: Insensitive Mockery and Unseemly Triumphalism Alert)

Iowahawk outdoes himself relating Zarqawi's first impressions of the afterlife, in Paradise is Overrated.

When the door close behind me, zwwwwippitch, I guess you could say I was a little surprised, maybe a little disappointed. Turns out paradise is dumpier that you'd expect. A lot dumpier. In fact it's a lot like the Iraq boondocks; sandy, dusty, seemed like 150 degrees in the shade. I always figured paradise would have better climate control, but hey, Allah has the thermostat and He works in mysterious ways. I start looking around, and looking around. No virgins, no figs, no raisins. Now, I'm horny, hungry, and annoyed. Okay, I figure, I guess it's up to Zarkman to cherchez la poontang himself, so I start to walk down this dusty street, and BOOOM!.....

IED's in Paradise.

Yesterday someone (??) dredged up this old 2001 Onion item about the 9/11 hijackers' arrival in Hell, and it makes a nice companion piece to Iowahawk's. Read 'em both for a grin...or a grimace.
