NEW YORK - In Harlem is an new shopfront selling cakes, cookies and the odd doughnut. What makes it different is the people who run it.
The Tea Party and Al-Qaeda have funding shortfalls - and due to low public approval rates, have not been able to rely on donations.
This has forced the two enemies to unite in a new venture.
The shop cost $1200 to buy, and makes $400 a day, split equally between the two sides. But how do they cope?
"We have a rotating-shift system," said Al-Faruq, "for four hours, we go, then for the next four hours they go. This means we only see each other for at most, 30 minutes during the course of the working day."
The two factions appear to have things in common.
"We both hate modern America, and we both love those cool whales at SeaWorld," said a Tea Party spokesman, "so, when we get enough funds together, they'll blow up Obama, and then we'll take over in the power vacuum. They get their jihad, and we get our jihad. Win-win."
