Taliban Humor ala Jay Leno

One of the right wingnut blogs I read (and enjoy) is written by a fellow I consider to be pretty reasonable… even if his blogstuff doesn’t always show it. Today he posted a blurb sent to him by one of our soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Some of my more left leaning readers may find it over the edge, but to me it shows that even in the worst of circumstances… some humor can be found.

Hat Tip to Old NFO over at NOBODY ASKED ME.

YOU MAY BE TALIBAN IF...

1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to beer.

2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes.

3. You have more wives than teeth.

4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon "unclean."

5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.

6. You can't think of anyone you haven't declared Jihad against.

7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.

8. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.

9. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least one.

10. You've always had a crush on your neighbor's goat.

I omitted one that even I thought was a bit much (correct or not), so if you want to read the whole thing, cruise over to NFO’s blog.

Thanks for the laugh and the link! Being a Lib doesn't necessarily mean you think the Taliban is peachy, and after spending a little time with Old NFO, it's safe to say being a conservative doesn't necessarily mean you're crazy. Another blogger that fits into the category of "I often disagree, but I think what you're saying is important," is Just a Girl in Short Shorts. Her posts are pictorially racy, but her writing is pretty thought provoking

Not at all over the edge. I don't think it is possible to be over the edge, when referring to people who think, My God is better than your God - And I'm going to kill you unless you change your mind. And maybe rape you a little bit - if I'm in the mood to use my Holy Rape Tool on you.

To be fair, in that region, I'm trying to remember (based on an old news show I saw) an AK47 can be had for $25-50 US dollars. Still, that may be 1 year's income. And an AK47 is not a machine gun. It is a fully automatic assault rifle. A 50 cal mountable weapon, now THAT is a machine gun.

But enough with the trifling.

Love your blog.
