Terrorists and ne'er do wells around the world are gearing up for their moment in the spotlight this coming August.
"9/11 was a good start and now a pretty memorable date, then the 7/7 bombers came along and set the bar pretty high. We think if we can pull it together on the 8th of August this year then we will probably get on TV' said Muhammed Al basomethingorother.
It would appear though that there is competition for the rights to terorrise the world on this date and it is causing some problems.
"We had some Aryan Militia groups write to us and ask us to leave the date alone but it is too good an opportunity to leave to a bunch of illiterate skinheads' said Ali Akhbar of the Judean Peoples Front. "Death to the pigdog infidels on appropriately memorable dates!" he continued,before returning to watch Baywatch.
George Bush declined to comment on his plans for the auspicious day but said it included 'killing forners' before returning to watch Baywatch
