Disturbing scenes from the Egyptian uprising. The Middle East is obviously in turmoil.

Let's face it. Riots break out and rioters are
rarely prepared for the chaos of battle.
This Islamic zealot seeks shelter
under either a rusted-out wok
or the hubcap from a 47 Mercury.


This revolutionary youth has
manufactured protective armor from
what looks to be an aluminum stockpot,
red yarn, and some sort of flotation device.


This Muslim Brotherhood radical has
liberated a wastebasket and seems to
be pelting the government building
with a tuna sandwich on sliced wheat.
The guy behind him throws
like my 4-year old granddaughter.


This young fellow seems to be the
self-appointed leader of some militant
fundamentalist movement insisting that
Allah wants his followers to scotch-tape
cinnamon buns and baguettes to their heads.

Those muzzlims will get my cinnamon bun when they tear it from my cold dead forehead.

The man with the stock pot on his head is famed black comedian Steve Harvey. I always suspected he was a trouble maker.

Zio... That is a chilling declaration. Delicious too.

Wetz... I initially thought the same thing. Then I learned from Reuters that he is, in fact, a member of the Cairo University ROTC.

The nice thing about America, the only time you would see that type of idiocy in a civil war scenario would be from the fringe left, a rather small group which would be exiled before the pictures were developed (if they knew what was best for them). Even I have some specific gear to use, either for visual effect or to be more unobtrusive, depending on the need.

Bagels on da head, throwing sandwiches or like a girl, trash cans and pots... Yeah, I wonder if Green Peace is behind this. Them or Atrocity International. (I know, it is supposed to be Amnesty, it just isn't right to give them a misnomer.)

Whatever the material is in the first photo it brought to mind an old question; What rock did you crawl out from under?

I wish I could post sound effects to compliment your pictures. woo woo woo woo!

Nickie -Please do not denigrate the magical and mystical properties of '47 Mercury hubcaps. Viking lasses recognized their power and wore them in tandem on their chests when their husbands were practicing rapine and looting. I am personally indebted to one which I wore during the Chicago DNC riots in '68 when a drunken National Cashier Register employee fired a salvo of depleted ink ribbon cartridges at me. The metallic clanks and the limp red/black ribbon coils wantonly sliding down my face still trouble my dreams to this day.

And what's the problem Nickie? When I'm in the shop, I often put bananas in my ears to protect them from the noise.

Doomster... I still keep my old helmet liner in the closet with my Mossberg. It may not be great protection, but I refuse to meet Obama's jackbooted thugs at the door with a soup pot and a mixmaster.

Nickie Goomba said...

Christopher... I believe the correct question is: "What camel did you crawl out from under?"

Nickie Goomba said...

Bill... and a Nyuk Nyuk to you.

Nickie Goomba said...

Siggie... we must have been in the same crowd. I retuned home caked in wet matted carbon paper and reeking of mimeograph fluid.

Nickie Goomba said...

Jeez, Woody... Those "NO PRODUCE IN YOUr ORIFICES" signs apply to you too. You especially!

Perhaps what we are witnessing in Egypt and Libya is the evolution of organic, natural protective apparel. When high carbohydrate-based soft body armor is combined with Wolfgang Puck protective plating, there are some benefits that accrue almost immediately.

It is in fact very similar to the single gold earring that sailors used to wear to cover the cost of their burial. For the victims of the current Near East crises, their mourners and next-of-kin are treated to a funeral and a delicious reception all at the same time that they identify the body.

I subscribe to the Condiments School of warfare. These muslims are lacking even the most basic of tasty sauces and spreads.

Nickie Goomba said...

During a lull in the Six Day War (I believe it was a Thursday afternoon), I and my comrades smeared our naked bodies with hummus and darted past enemy positions in search of a newspaper. I've never again felt so close to my humanity.

Nickie Goomba said...

Zio... mohammed long ago forbad the use of Worcestershire Sauce. Their culture has never recovered.

superb

Nickie - God bless you Nickie; now the mystery of the Muslim Celebration of the Prancing Circumcised Chickpeas is finally understood. One of the Jordanian guards got so spooked at your display that he accidently shot himself in the groin, effectively removing his foreskin. His comrades immediately accused him of being a Jewish spy and beat him to death with a copy of the Jerusalem Post that somehow was found nearby.

Nickie Goomba said...

Case closed.

Those helmets were manufactured in Norf Korea!

On the general subject of North Africa, reports of the British SAS (Special Forces) being humiliated by being captured by irregular rebel forces and being bundled out of Libya are all completely false!

It was the SBS, Special Boat Service, the Navys version.

After seeing this my fears about Egypt have vanished. Those people will be just fine.
