My co-workers were jumping up and down from excitment today at what they have concluded to be a sure sign from god that this cartoon crisis has been pre-ordained and foretold by Allah himself. Their proof? The 57th verse from surat Al Ahzab in the Quran, which says the following (3 translations present):
YUSUFALI: Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger - Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment.
PICKTHAL: Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in the world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained.
SHAKIR: Surely (as for) those who speak evil things of Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the here after, and He has prepared for them a chastisement bringing disgrace.
What's so significant about that? Well, you see, the product code that identifies products that are made in Denmark is ...you guessed it...57! It's on the barcode of every danish product. Freeaaaaakaaaaaaaayyyyyyy!
Spooked out yet? You ready to believe now? Repent you danish Infidels you! The Product code of your country goes with the # of the verse. Surely that is proof that your government better apologize and declare Sharia laws or else suffer the wrath of God, no?
This I am sure will go to the Urban Legend Hall of Fame, the same way the flight Q33NY thing did. What? You don't know what I am talking about? Check it out:
Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS
And prepare to be spooked and shocked by the ultimate proof that 911 was orchestrated by the JOOOOOOOOOOZZZZZZZZ.
See? We told you so. We told you. But you just didn't listen. But You can't hide things from Microsoft. Microsoft knows all.
Too bad that the flight number of the first plane that hit the twin towers was actually American Airlines
