I love a clever headline, but perhaps I'm too thick to get this one.

doyner: I love a clever headline, but perhaps I'm too thick to get this one.

"Suicide attack strikes market"


I think that's the joke.

And if I'm right... it's just not funny.

If I'm wrong... well... then I'm also too stupid to get it.

"Sadly I can confirm that the head of counter-terrorism and traffic police for Kunduz province have been killed in today's suicide attack in the centre of Kunduz province,'' police chief Gen Khalil Andarabi told the BBC.

Ironic?

Meh.  If that is the joke it is too far of a stretch.

What's the "product" that the headline references? The suicide attack? That doesn't make any sense, especially not comedically.

Well they went and changed it. It did say exactly what the headline says.
 
2013-01-26 04:57:23 PM
Yeah, it's is a play on "IPhone strikes Market" or "Peanut butter and jelly in the same Jar strikes Market"...

No really funny.

Psst, you lookin' for Taliban? Oh, I can get you some, buddy. I can get you some Taliban. Fresh Taliban; good price.How much you lookin' for? Two, three Taliban? Give me the money; wait here. I'll get you some Taliban. Wait right here.

"Sadly I can confirm that the head of counter-terrorism and traffic police for Kunduz province have been killed in today's suicide attack in the centre of Kunduz province,'' police chief Gen Khalil Andarabi told the BBC.>/I>

So what are the odds he was killed by a guy who got fed up with red light cameras?

Is traffic so light in Kunduz that they can have one guy over that and counter-terrorism? 'Cause I know terrorism is big in Afghanistan...
 
2013-01-26 05:08:46 PM
The province's governor said the bomber was driving a motorbike and used potent explosives in the attack,

Being me, I have to ask, what the hell would IMPOTENT explosives do to a market?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't see the humor.
I don't feel so alone anymore.
I DO still feel dirty.

If it's one of those where a little slips out every time I take a step... it make the whole aisle smell really, really bad.

Subby's headline is a mistaray maray to me..

Bump prices after an amusing arrest involving a bomb squad and multiple ED jokes.

Still, that makes more sense than the headline.

The headline made much more sense in it's original Klingon.

Never thought I'd agree with meow.
 
2013-01-26 06:33:18 PM
The head of terrorism and the traffic police are not the same person. That's why quote from the article used "have been killed" instead of "has been killed".

I really hope I just unwittingly stumbled into a thatsthejoke.jpg situation.

They'll be out of business within a few months - everyone just orders their suicide attack strikes from amazon.com these days.

okay,
I think the original url apparently include the text that is now the fark headline
BBC fixed it
Subby forgot to get a screenshot to prove they are not a cray cray
We all get to throw rotten cabbage and carp at subby

It says "have been killed" meaning the guy who is head of counter-terrorism was killed as was the the head of traffic police. I think. It's not the best writing ever.

I can't help but wonder if this Market has the same "uncertainty" that the GOP and Wall Street uses to force us to do things for them...

This is what happens when someone who normally hangs out in the Business tab takes a stab at the Main tab. Confusion ensues.

Also corks on forks.
