http://www.theglobaledition.com/female-taliban-suicide-bomber-hates-the-
idea-of-virgins-in-heaven/

ISLAMABAD (The Global Edition) � Khalida Akhtar, a 20-year-old Taliban
suicide bomber, decided at the last minute not to blow herself up at the
main train station in the capitol of Pakistan because she remembered that
she would have to deal with a bunch of virgin guys in heaven, local
authorities say.

Ms. Akhtar, who was dressed in a head-to-toe burqa and strapped with
explosives, was seen just hours ago running and screaming through the
Islamabad Railway Station before she was apprehended by local law
enforcement.

�The young woman realized that she would have 72 virgins on her hands if
she sacrificed her earthly life, and apparently the thought made her so
sick to her stomach that she decided on the spot to pull the plug on the
whole operation and give herself up to the authorities,� police officer
Malik Rashid told reporters.

In a statement recorded by arresting officers, Ms. Akhtar explained her
decision. �I�d actually never stopped before to think about the reward I
would receive for my sacrifice,� Ms. Khalida said. �Unlike my brother and
his friends, I�m actually not a fan of virgins. To be fair, I don�t think
any woman in the world is. I�m supposed to give my life for a bunch of
guys that don�t know anything about the female body or how to please a
woman? I don�t think so!� Khalida added.

As she was taken into custody, Khalida Akhtar also reportedly told
officers that she would have gladly sacrificed herself for higher causes
if she could trade those 72 virgins for two experienced guys, a masseuse,
a butler, and a chef.

e meh.. great conundrum now, for AQ; on paper they should hunt for
lesbians, whose will give not few misgivings, even inside Islam, and
with near-zero chance of success; because I'm convinced that 1001 nights
is actually a cautionary book for young soon-to-be-husbands, I will NOT
be surprised that some 2nd/3rd or 3rd/4th wives are actually what once
was known in West as "purple marriage" (two gays marrying two lesbians)

The site does appear to be quite the exercise in
creative writting! Interesting find.
