From General Discussion / Iraqi TV turns to satire in war against Islamic State
Posted 29 Oct 14 13:24
Message
So Satan marries a Jewish woman in Iraq. She lays an egg, which hatches and pops out a wild-eyed, bearded madman the proud couple names the "ISIS-ling."

Their son becomes known as "Beheader." He lops off heads with a bloody sword, shoots people dead and blows up everything in his path with homemade bombs. For exercise, he lifts barbells made of human skulls.

This is Iraq under a future Islamic state, as imagined in "State of Superstition," a hit comedy on state-run Al Iraqiya TV. The half-hour show turns a deadly serious subject - the reign of terror imposed by the extremist group Islamic State in parts of Iraq and Syria - into fodder for spoof and satire.

Maybe it's a glitch, the numbers could be cumulative totals of site visitors.

Either way nothing's moving THAT fast...

Guess it must be one of Abel's barnstormers because nothing on the current Writers Table is moving that much....

From News Discussion / Islamic State readies bioterror drone nicknamed The Ebola Gay

You'd think that Brit tabloids like the Daily Mail would have cottoned on by now about the meaning of 'spoof'.

Today's story in the DM:

"Could terrorists turn themselves into Ebola suicide 'bombs'?

Experts fear ISIS jihadists may infect themselves to spread virus in West

Isis fanatics may be thinking of infecting themselves with Ebola, says expert A U.S Naval War College lecturer says strategy is entirely plausible

The virus is running rampant in West Africa, with 3,800 dead in a few months

Terrorist group Isis may be considering using Ebola as a suicide bio-weapon against the West, according to a military expert. The virus is transmitted by direct contact with an infected person who is showing the symptoms - and it wouldn't be difficult for fanatics to contract it then travel to countries they want to wreak havoc in, according to a military expert. Capt. Al Shimkus, Ret., a Professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, said that the strategy is entirely plausible

Something strange going on in the Writers Desk Points Breakdown Table Rank - instead of 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc it's saying ERR.

Short for error?

Vast improvement over the past few days.

Just noticed that the points system still not 100%, not registering the automatic 50 points when a spoof goes to Published.

And we seem to be stuck at '20' readers now online.

Yeah, Snowden so jealous of Julian Assange's spoofs, probably thinks he'll get the same fabulous Writers' Remuneration Package and benefits as the Ecuador embassy fugitive.
