Suicide Bomber Falls Down Stairs; Dies of Embarrassment and Bomb Detonation,But Mostly Bomb
AceOfSpades ^ | 1/24/2008 | Ace

Own goal:

A WOULD-be suicide bomber fell down a flight of stairs and blew himself up as he headed out for an attack in Afghanistan, police say. It was the second such incident in two days, with another man killing himself and three others on Tuesday when his bomb-filled waistcoat exploded as he was putting it on in the southern town of Lashkar Gah.

Thanks to CAD Daddy for the story and the headline.

I had to adjust the title, it was too long.

Sounds like the Taliban is having difficulty finding suitable suicide bombers, like those that can chew gum and walk at the same time?

I just love premature explodalation stories! I can just picture the guy putting on the vest, looking at his watch, saying “Ooops, gotta go, I’m a little late”, then he hits the top step, trips on his shoelace, and BOOM!

We have a "boom" in booper bombers.

They must be under pressure, in a hurry.

Thanks to our men and women as well as those from NATO!

Thank you ladies and gentlemen for you service!

The Darwin Award goes out to him. As a matter of fact, the Darwin Award goes out to the Islamo Fascists. They would do better if the read a little Soren Kierkagaard and take a leap of faith off some cliffs (I know it doesn’t say to do so) for Mohammad.

To avoid future mishaps, I recommend that every terrorist blow themselves up, at least once, in a live training exercise.

If they survive, they should keep training until they get it right.

It would be a hoot on pay-per-view.

Make it $49.95 a pop and we could pay off the national debt and fund the war on terrorism.
