Politically Incorrect? Who Cares?

On the run-up to the Israeli elections, I thought we could probably use some comic relief. So, when a friend of mine who lives in Italy sent me some Muslim jokes, I decided I would share the most offensive ones with you.

What do you say to a Muslim woman with two black eyes? Nothing! You told her twice already!

A Palestinian suspect was being grilled by Israeli police. "Honest, I'm not a suicide bomber," he pleaded. "I didn't say I wanted to blow myself up so I could sleep with 72 virgins. All I said was I was dying to get laid!"

What does the sign say above the nursery in a Palestinian maternity ward? "Live Ammunition."

Obviously, the word "offensive" is a relative term, and compared to the genocidal ideology of Hamas, the Hitlerian rantings of Mahmoud Amadinejad, and the carnage in Iraq, this sort of politically incorrect humor somehow seems to pale in comparison. But then, a lot of us probably felt the same way about those Danish cartoons.

You make some great points, Rory. We have to worry about offending sensibilities while they're chopping off heads and not giving a damn. Just another sign the world has gone ass-backwards.

Esther,
I'm mighty damned offended about the beheadings. Recently, I've seen pictures of beheaded Indonesian CHILDREN. Of course, MY sensitivites don't make the msm.

Well, considering that Hamas blows up women and children, no, I don't find those all that offensive. But watch out - the Muslims might blow up things over that...

I'm with you, guys. It's impossible to fathom a mind-set that finds it obscene for women to appear in public without being swathed in veils, but doesn't find it obscene to decapitate children. The West is never going to win this battle until we recognize there's a radical element that just cannot be reasoned with.

(And here I thought this post was going to provide some comic relief.)

A Muslim family moves into a upscale Jewish neighborhood. One day one of the Muslim children climbs a tree in his backyard, looks over his fence and says to his Jewish neighbor kid "We live in a Jewish neighborhood, we're just as good as you!"

The next day the Muslim boy climbs his tree and notices his Jewish neighbors have swimming pools in their backyards, just like he does. "We have a swimming pool, we're just as good as you!"

The next day the Muslim boy is in his tree and notices his Jewish neighbor drives a fancy car, just like his father does. "We have a nice car, we're just as good as you!"

The next day the Muslim boy calls out to his Jewish neighbor "HA! We're better than you!" The Jewish neighbor asks why.

"We don't live next to a bunch of damned Muslims!"

(I'm going to PC hell for this)

Mr. Beamish,

"I'm going to PC hell for this."

That reminds me that I hereby absolve Esther of all responsibility for anything in this post which is deemed by Muslims to be offensive.

(One fatwa is more than enough for this blog).

So you found a way to slip that in after all, Rory. Too funny. I'm sure I've done plenty of posts to get me into trouble....if someone's looking to deliver trouble.

Esther,
I know, but I figured why should they have BOTH our heads? After all, somebody has to be left to carry on "the mission." And not only that, but these people seem to get particularly cranky when you make fun of them, so this could be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back.

I am not Catholic so I will just be my hillbilly redneck self and light up a couple of muslims for your soul on my way home. Whut caliber lighter do you prefer I use? ==evil grin== I am partial to fifty caliber muhself.

Thanks for visiting Alnot, but don't think that's what we were going for. ;) There's unPC and then there's.... OMG.

Beak, I'll try to stop by! Congrats!

Tim, always good to see you!

Felis, will definitely have to check that out.

AOW, I'm really loving that avitar.

Tim,
Thanks so much for the link. I'll be certain to send you any copies of the hate mail I receive. :)

Felis,
I think that guy is the best example of why some people shouldn't be given access to a computer.

Beakerkin,
Congratulations on your 500th.

Alnot,
I appreciate your stopping by, but I think I may already be in enough trouble with this post, so there's probably no need to go to the extreme.

AOW,
I agree with Esther. Great avitar.

Rebekah,
Speaking of avitars, I couldn't let yours go by without notice. I have five cats, so I'm totally loving yours.
