A discount on the pump price or is it the price to pump?

It seems that in Austrailia, when you fill up at the pump you can get a discount on the price of your next pump. Two brothels down under are offering a discount on their rate when you bring in your last gas station receipt.

I wonder of the chicken ranches outside of Las Vegas are going to match the offer?

My Cubicle

Share and enjoy!

The last time I was here

The last time I was up here, this place didn't exist. The next time I end up here, they will probably be closed for the season.

That's my luck.

The al-Qaeda Fund

Somewhere, right now, in the world a bomb is exploding. Infidels are dying. The streets are running red with their blood. Somewhere in the world, a martyr is on his way to Paradise for his reward of seventy-two virgins (see below).

Allah be praised.

Sometimes things go horribly wrong and there is no new martyr for Paradise. Only a maimed and crippled man is left. He cannot go to prayers at the mosque. He cannot herd his goats. He cannot satisfy his camel.

How very sad.

Now thanks to the al-Queda Fund, Achmed has a new wheelchair to go to the mosque. With his new prosthetics, Mahmoud can herd his goats. Even poor Musab who was rendered impotent when his bomb misfired has been helped. The al-Queda Fund has given him Viagra and his camel has never been happier!

Allah be praised.

But there is more work that needs to be done and more maimed martyrs-to-be that need our help. Please send your tax deductible donation today!

This just in ...

Al Qaeda leader "Abu Musab al-Zarqawi", killed by US Forces in Iraq last month, has just met with the first of his 72 virgins that Allah promised.

Only 71 more to go!

Allah Akbar!

I'm thinking crab for dinner

The BBC is running a story about an invasion of giant red king crabs invading from Russia.

Environmentalists and fishermen in northern Norway are warning of a Russian invasion of alien crustaceans which are threatening to ruin the local sea fauna.

They say the giant red king crab is spreading with alarming speed from Russian waters along the Norwegian coast, destroying everything in its wake.

The crab has few natural enemies, and is considered to be an omnivore, digesting everything from cod larvae to other crabs.

It seems that the crabs, which are native to the north Pacific (around Kamchatka and Alaska) were transplanted to the Barents Sea in 1960. Since then, they have spread over a much larger area.

"With the king crabs, we know that they are an enormous crab, today it's about 20 million of them in the Barents Sea. Twenty years ago there were zero."

Mr Hansson says the present annual fishing quota of 300,000 crabs must be increased. Local fishermen agree - too many king crabs ruin their nets.

Currently, Norway is planning on increasing the quota of crabs its fishermen can catch. Personally, I think the ought to drop the quota and declare an open season. If the crabs don't belong there, then they should be fished out.

Let's get the boat fired up boys, it looks like we're having crab for dinner!
