when i was your age

Mullah Nasruddin was walking down the street when he came upon a group of a few boys about 10 years of age, surrounding a Cat. Concerned that the boys were hurting the animal, he went over and asked them what they were doing.One of the boys replied, "This cat is an old neighborhood stray. We take him home with us sometimes, but only one of us can take him home. So we're having a contest: whichever one of us tells the biggest lie can take him home today."Of course, the Mullah was shocked. "You boys shouldn't be having a contest telling lies!" he exclaimed. He then launched into a 10-minute sermon against lying, beginning, "Don't you boys know it's a sin to lie?" and ending with, "Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie."There was complete silence for about a minute. As Mullah Nasruddin smiled with satisfaction that he'd gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a deep sigh. "All right," he said, "give him the Cat."

The Dangers of the Movies

The Pashtun lay sprawled across three entire seats in the posh Lahore theatre. When the usher came by and noticed this he whispered to the Pashtun, "Sorry, sir, but you're only allowed one seat." The Pashtun groaned but didn't budge. The usher became more impatient. "Sir, if you don't get up from there, I'm going to have to call the manager. The Pashtun just groaned. The usher marched briskly back up the aisle.
In a moment he returned with the manager. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move the Pashtun, but with no success.
Finally, they summoned the police. The Policeman surveyed the situation briefly then asked, "All right brother, what's you're name?"
"Abdullah," the Pashtun moaned.
"Where are from, Abdullah?"
With pain in his voice Abdullah replied.... "The balcony."

female muslim comic

This is an article about a muslim female comediene very iteresting.

No one embodies these ideas better than Shazia Mirza, a devout Muslim woman whose quest to pursue the simple--and quite personal--ambition of being a stand-up comedienne is literally taking the world by storm. It's not just that she is Muslim and is doing jokes about 9/11 and the backlash and hysteria that has followed. "My name is Shazia Mirza. At least that's what it says on my pilot's license." It's not just that she is funny: "If the comedy thing doesn't work out, I'm going to be a suicide bomber. I spoke to my counselor about it. She said no experience is required, you don't have to wait for payday, and it'll get you out of that marriage to your ugly cousin" or "Comedians and suicide bombers have one thing in common. Me, me, me." Indeed, what is most striking about Mirza and the condition she brings to her work as a comic is that her very existence is a powerful, if unintended, challenge to the countless social, cultural, political, racial, and gender paradigms that have the world locked in an endless, unwinnable battle with itself.
