    The AlMasri part of his assumed name means “The Egyptian”, as with hook-handed Abu Hamza Al Masri

    It looks like the poor guy is leaking into the sand and cooling off.

    Please Sir, may I have more?

    I hope that he suffered a lot before he discovered that Jesus denied his Eternal Life.

    Happily he has now discovered that there ain’t no 72 virgins in his paradise. Arsehole!

      That’s actually the problem. He’s dead so he has discovered nothing. He is as ignorant now as he was in life. Only less dangerous.

      They’re 72 virgin pigs and a big black devil is lashing his back to make sure he keeps at it for all time. 🙂
