A LANDMINE blew up in the home of a religious cleric in southern Afghanistan, killing the mullah, two of his sons and two other men who had been preparing an attack, police said today.

The cleric's wife was critically wounded in the blast in their compound in the southern province of Helmand late yesterday, and a daughter was hurt, provincial police chief General Mohammad Hussein Andiwal said.

The bodies of the mullah and his two sons, both under 15 years old, remained at the site of the blast, he said.

Other people in the compound said two other men were killed but their bodies had been removed before police arrived, he said.

Must be low on volunteers for the Mullah himself to have to do it.

Sucks to be that dumb, too.

Somehow I doubt that. Maybe within a hundred yards or so...

More “civilians” killed.

Wonder if it counts as a suicide bomber or a homicide bomber?

My Pinewood Derby car was way ahead, somehow jumped the track, got in front of the other kid’s car in HIS LANE, and beat him like an, er, rented Pinewood Derby car.

Except I was disqualified, and people looked at me like I had planned the whole thing.

Thanks for reminding me of this completely depressing incident.

A LANDMINE blew up in the home of a religious cleric in southern Afghanistan, killing the mullah, two of his sons and two other men who had been preparing an attack, police said today.

This might depreciate the market value of their home.

I feel your pain.

Cub Scouts was one of my first brushes with the reality of the world.

The realization that the Scoutmaster’s kid always won everything.

Since all of the men are gone, shouldn’t the wife be stoned to death for being out in public without a male relative?

I’m just sayin’....

Must be exciting to live in a compound where a neighbor is making bombs.

"Knock, knock"

"Who's there?"

"It's Fatima from next door, Ali. Can I borrow a cup of sugar?"

"Sure....do you want that with nitrocellulose or without?"

"Ciao, dude!"
