image for Baghdad Market Day 'unspectacluar'
A 'dead' giveaway?

News reports are trickling out of Iraq that its Thursday Flea Market & Hippie Stall Day passed by unnerving quietly. For the first time in 3 years, it appears that no suicide bombers were available to successfully activate a bomb in the name of mass-murder (but their bosses call Allah & a 27 virgin promise).

Mothers, children & pensioners shuffled through the stalls as usual, clad in corrugated iron jackets as blast protection, but the day passed without incident. Apart from a fight between a hippie who had a stall selling bongs and pipes and the local hookah shop owner, over a poster of Bob Marley with an RPG on his shoulder.

Experts were quick to dispel any grand winds of change, stating cautiously, "It is refreshing news, but maybe the suicide bombers alarm didn't go off, or maybe it did while he was still in bed, but he'd rigged it up to his explosives late last night and not realised the consequences"

In other news, 80% of Afghanistans heroin is somehow making its way to Europe and the USA, despite there being a huge military presence there, albeit a military presence rife with pin-veined soldiers who are somehow able to retire at 25 when they return home after finishing their tour.

Make Mahavishnu BBZ's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
