My Son The Shark

Allah and His Shrink Wrapped Prophet should be proud of their devotees. According to Newsweek, a series of shark attacks in the Egyptian resort town of
Sharm al-Sheikh has been hit by a spate of gruesome shark attacks, with one person killed. Authorities have been scrambling to reassure tourists that the issue is under control. But the shark is still on the loose, prompting some Egyptian officials to accuse outside forces of sabotaging the country’s booming tourism industry.
Okay, the over-the-top Muslim rhetoric alarms are going off and the lights are flashing. But then again, sharks have been known to frequent the centuries old ocean routes of slave ships, no? It seems like a good meal goes right down the throat and straight into GPS-enabled shark DNA. But somehow the evil Jooos have found a way to weaponize the sharks' capacity to eat fish, humans, hubcaps, license plates and just about anything else they can stuff into their many-toothed maw.
In an interview with a TV talk show Monday, the governor of South Sinai, Mohammad Abdul Fadhil Shousha, came up with this gem: “What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark in the sea to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question. But it needs time to confirm.”
Brilliant, simply brilliant.

Nickie! Whoa! Let us know when you're rearranging the furniture.

At first I thought you might have sold the joint to Murdock like you was talkin' about.

So, can I have that lamp I like? I see it's not being used anymore in the Green Room.

All, I like the new look. Right is left and left is right. It's like going back to England for a while.

As far as Egyptian Sharks, it would seem once again that 'God is Not Willing'.

Well, if Allah Ain't A Great White.
One of my daughters was in Sharm-al-Sheikh in '07. She returned home unscathed and uneaten. This is the one currently serving in Afghanistan.

I think that was the resort where my daughter saw some American tourists yelling at a vendor to leave them alone; an Egyptian cop strolled up w/o a care in the world and butt stoked the kid right in the puss with his AK47. Then the woman really freaked because she thought the cop killed the kid right there in front of her. POW.
Allah is Merciful.

Yeah Kid, Nickie finally broke down and had the newsroom repainted. At least the odor of feta cheeseburgers, garlic fries and kuskus has been somewhat abated.

We still can't get DC's toenail clippings out of the rug though. Rhod finally learned that he can't walk around here in his socks.

Randy - only Rhod's termite farm.

Screw it. It took me about 7 hours to miss the old site.

BTW, the Egyptians are correct. I attended university with that shark who, in 1973, went by the name Jacob Goldman. I recognized his predatory glare from many uncomfortable encounters at our Student Union's Ten Cent Taco Tuesdays.

Rhod said...

Thank Heaven the carpet only contains DC's toenail clippings. The other stuff absorbed into a fairly clear image of The Alamo.

Rhod said...

No, Nick, that was Jacob Silverman.
Goldman was kosher; he'd never eat an Egyptian.

So Nickie ... How many times has there been a dry run to change the carpet around here? It's tough to change success, isn't it?
