Slow News Day, Ends In Hilarity


Apparently I over estimated the medias coverage of the newest U.K. terror plot. I searched all forms of news near and far and found nothing remotely interesting to tell you about. I expect something unique to materialize in the coming days but as for now the entire media worlds coverage can be summed up in a few short words…

-Islamic terrorists.

-Pakistanis.

-Airplanes.

-Liquid explosives.

-U.K.

If you read the news you’ll find that any other words are just filler. Luckily I did have an entertaining encounter regarding the terror plot at the convenience store.

This morning I went to my friends place downtown which means I had to park by a meter. I didn’t have any quarters so I decided to go into the convenience store and buy something in order to break my bill into quarters. I grabbed a bottle of water and got in line to pay. While waiting in line I noticed the two guys at the counter were Palestinian. They were going back and forth in Arabic talking about each others moms and talking about the boobs of a girl in line. I was loving it of course. Finally I get to the front of the line, place my bottle on the counter and ask “ALI” if he could give me my change back in quarters. He says sure and then the following ensued…

ALI-You cant bring this on the plane anymore huh? (laughing)

Me- Uhhh no I guess not, you have to throw it out or something.

ALI- Yea, that’s ok just come back to us, we’ll fill it up for you. (Winks at me and starts laughing)

I thought it was funny but I don’t think anyone else did, I looked at the American guy next to me who looked like he just crapped in his pants, he probably called Homeland Security as soon as he walked out.

It might behoove the Arab community to emphasize the fact that Pakistanis are not Arabs. The Pakistanis are giving the Muslims a bad name and also confusing the westerners as to what the Arabs look like!
