Hello Abu Hamza, I'm Your Roommate Bubba
I love the smell of soap-on-a-rope in the morning:
He once described Britain as a "toilet" -- now, radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri is to be flushed out of the UK legal system and into a potential life sentence in America, the end of an era for perhaps London's most famous anti-Western preacher.It's about time. Let's just hope he's on the next plane out of Heathrow. I have a feeling he's going to find a federal prison less comfortable than the ones in the UK.
After nearly a decade of legal battles, a European court has ruled that the one-eyed, hook-handed al-Masri, who was convicted in a British court and jailed in 2006 for a variety of terror-related crimes, can be extradited to face terror charges in the U.S.
Which reminds me of the only funny joke from the movie Mallrats. It had to do with the Ben Affleck character having a certain predilection in which he lured vulnerable young women into having sex in an uncomfortable place.
The punchline being: You mean like in the back of a VW Bug?
Yeah, that was a good line.
