Say It Ain't So: 'Anti-Islamic Extremist' Pork-Laced Ammo

youve-got-to-be-kidding-me.jpg

In please stop making us look bad news, a company in Idaho is selling pork-laced ammunition as a deterrent to radical Islamic terrorists. The concept is that the thought of being shot with pork, which is 'haram' (unclean), will deter extremists from committing terrorist acts with the fear of not being able to enter paradise. It might be one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard.

Shannon Dunn, assistant professor of religious studies at Gonzaga University, said South Fork's concept is based on an inaccurate understanding of the Quran.


"There is no penalty for coming into contact with pork given by the Quran," she said, pointing to verses that prohibit the consumption of pork and carrion that are reminiscent of Jewish dietary laws outlined in Leviticus.

"To my knowledge, Muslims, especially unknowingly, would not be banned from heaven for eating or getting hit by pork," she said. "There are some interpreters who suggest that Muslims should eat pork rather than starve, if faced with that alternative."

First of all, how often is John Q. Potatofarmer in Idaho actually fighting off radical Islamic terrorists? Are they sneaking onto the farm at night and ruining his crops? Secondly, can you please stop making the rest of us look bad? It's like you're trying to fight fire with retarded.

Thanks to Medi, who's a firm believer pork belongs on breakfast plates, not bullets.

    As a muslim Geekologie reader, I personally was lmao at this.
    Extremists might go bombing your asses alright, but not because you're infdels, no sir, but because of the sheer stupidity and ignorance this whole thing is wrapped in xD

    when the Iraqis would blow themselves up to kill a bus load of Iraqi children in the name of Allah then the Iraqi police would dump the chunks of suicide bomber in the garbage and the stray dogs would eat them.

    This product is genius!

    This is eerily reminiscent of what General Pershing did in the Philippines.

    And everyone below falls for the marketing ploy, you're doing exactly what is planned.

    Free word of mouth advertising is priceless.

    how would the person you are shooting know if the bullet that just killed them was laced with pork products? this is a product for retards, made by retards.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Nobody mentioned how this is probably the tastiest bullet? Hmmmm lead...

  • GigiAUT

    Well, if you're stupid enough to believe a suicide bombing will get you into heaven and have 72 virgins waiting for you there, you're most likely stupid enough to believe a pork laced bullet is enough to ruin you chances of getting there. These guys might actually be on to something....

  • catallergy

    why would a pork laced bullet prevent them from getting into heaven? muslims aren't allowed to ingest pork. it doesn't matter if they get shot with something that may have once touched a pig. its not like a silver bullet for a werewolf.

  • Girgear

    It doesn't count if they don't bite the bullet... ok I'll shut up now.

  • Greg

    What a whiny columnist.. Crybaby liberals.. I spit on your familys graves. I hope your daughters and wifes are gang raped my muslims, Fuckwads.

  • disqus_LaKriMeObS

    Not really a new idea. For years people joked about pork fat coated bullets and around 10 years ago Russia seriously considered burying dead Chechen terrorists in pig skin body bags to deter others.

    This is the type of thing you'd expect from a Fallout video game. But then you realize that all of the goofiness, cynicism, and satire of the Fallout games is grounded in a very real and very scary reality.

    If only it weren't so expensive...

    Face palm.

    Why is everyone hating on this? They aren't saying they really believe it will have an effect on their after-life, but what if this was just enough to make them doubt just enough to decide to stay home rather than plant bombs for our troops?
