Wannabe Terrorists are practising all over Iraq

Sick of the lack of correctly trained terrorists Al-Quaeda has today announced plans to start a new gameshow where points will be awarded to teams of terrorists who manage to pull off an atrocity accurately. The show, which will be aired on popular network Al Jazeera, will be called Terror Factor after the original concept of Terror Idol was rejected over the meaning of the word "idol."

Teams of terrorists will be awarded points for such categories as "remembering to add a detonator" and " not being caught on CCTV" and deducted points for "not using enough Sodium Hydroxide" and "implicating your fellow terrorists to gain a lesser sentence."

Top Judge in the new gameshow is alleged to be Osama Bin Laden himself, who has expressed concern at the lack of accurate targeting lately, with the other 5 judges wishing to remain anonymous due to the risk of hanging.

Wannabe terrorists were apparently queueing round the block outside TV Studio headquarters until a reporter asked what the prize was, the network administrator responsible for the show's concept advised, "You get to die a martyr, what better prize can there be."

He was sadly killed in the stampede for the exit.

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