British Al Qaeda On Strike

June 2, 2010 at 10:38 am (News & Politics)

  [My buddy Scott passed this on to me.] 
 Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike this week
in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife.  Emergency
talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement.

   The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins
a suicide bomber would receieve after his death would be cut by 25% this month, from
72 to only 60.  The rationale for the cut was the increase in the number of suicide
bombers and a subsequent shortage of virgins in the afterlife.

   The suicide bombers’ union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs (B.O.O.M.)
responded with a statement that this was unacceptable to its members, and immediately
balloted for strike action.  General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press: “Our members
are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad.  We don’t ask for much in
return, but to be treated like this is a kick in the teeth.”
   Speaking from the shed in Tipton in the West Midlands in which he now resides, Al Qaeda
chief executive Osama bin Laden explained, “We sympathize with our workers’ concerns but
Al Qaeda is simply not in a position to meet their demands.  They are simply not accepting
the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace.

   “Thanks to Western depravity, there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife.
It’s a straight choice between reducing expenditure and laying people off.  I don’t like
cutting wages but I’d hate to have to tell 3000 of my staff that they won’t be able to blow
themselves up.”

   Spokespersons for the union in the Northeast of England, Ireland, Wales and the entire
Australian continent stated that the strike would not affect their operations, since “there are
no virgins in their areas anyway.”

   Apparently, the drop in the number of suicide bombings has been put down to the emergence
of that Scottish singing star, Susan Boyle.  Now that Muslims know what a virgin looks like,
they are not so keen on going to Paradise.
