- Who said Arabs never invented anything?
That stands for Improvised Rectal Explosive Device; Al-Qaeda’s newest weapon.
- Update: There may have been, uh,Â dry runs for this sort of thing.
* I’m sure Winds of Jihad cartoonist Shem will come up with a great cartoon to celebrate this memorable event:
The suicide bomber who tried to assassinate a Saudi prince used an unusual place to conceal his explosive charge; his anus.
Pic snatched from the Tundra Tabloids:
Al-Arabiya, a Saudi-owned television network, said the attackerÂ concealed the explosives in his anus, allowing him to evade detection. The network also quoted an expert as saying that the method of concealment aimed the blast away from the target, while blowing the bomber to bits.
Gladly the attack failed, otherwise Iraqi officials would freak out and demand that all visitors to government offices have their anuses probed before entry.
But seriously, how did he place the explosives in his anus? I don’t think he could’ve done it on his own. But on the other hand if someone else helped him do it then that makes the whole operation unholy, and very gay, right?
