Led by Kata’ib Taswiyya, the group traditionally in charge of demolishing cultural targets, ISIS has started producing sculptural...

God Hopes Men Will Listen to Women This Time

In response to questions regarding the Women’s March that was sparked by Trump’s inauguration and turned out to be the world’s largest protest thus far, God commented that he “really hopes men will listen to women this time around.” Apparently the Almighty was referring to the Golden Calf Incident where women gathered at Mount Sinai and vehemently protested the decision to worship a statue made of gold.  The men didn’t listen, and God got pissed. It is said that all chaos,...

Saudi Man Assumes Bad Driver in Car Ahead Must Be Woman, and Then He Remembers…

Local Saudi software engineer, Ibrahim Awad, had a good chuckle to himself on his daily commute after remembering women can’t drive in Saudi Arabia. After a slow-driving white sedan swerved into his lane without signaling, Awad cursed out the driver and quickly assumed, “it’s gotta be a woman”. However, after feeling guilty, Awad berated himself for being so close-minded but finally came to the conclusion that “while I know it’s a little sexist, that’s just the way it is. Men...

Oman: “No One’s Noticed That We Exist Yet, So We’re Probably Good”

The Sultanate of Oman breathed a collective sigh of relief this past week after everyone in the Gulf state came to the realization that no one in the western world could give half a shit about their existence – and most didn’t even know it was a country.
