Yet An­oth­er Draw­back of Ab­sti­nence-On­ly Ed­u­ca­tion

White guy to girl: You know both these guys are Mus­lim, so don’t piss them off. Mus­lims don’t care if they die be­cause then they’ll get 72 vir­gins.
Mus­lim #1: It’s not 72 vir­gins, it’s 45 vir­gins.
Mus­lim #2: I thought it was 40 vir­gins.
White guy: But a Mus­lim per­son told me that it was 72 vir­gins.
Mus­lim #1: What are you gonna do with 72 vir­gins, man?
White guy: The same thing you’re gonna do with 45 vir­gins, but I would get tired of telling them what to do.

Hap­py Holidays–NYC Style

White Mus­lim Woman: The women who were sit­ting here were laugh­ing at me be­cause of how I look. I’m a so­cial work­er. Some of my clients are OM­RDD so I read lips re­al well. Be­cause I’m Mus­lim they did­n’t like my out­fit. They think we don’t care about how we dress. I was ac­tu­al­ly Kr­ish­na be­fore I was Mus­lim. The Christ­mas hol­i­days, the spir­it is sup­posed to be giv­ing. My daugh­ter’s Chris­t­ian still. That’s why I’m laugh­ing. In my house we used to have Kwan­zaa, every­thing. I knew my hus­band for three years. I taught him Eng­lish. I was his teacher! I just con­vert­ed. Re­ver­sion, they call it. Then two weeks lat­er we got mar­ried. Eng­lish I taught him and he was teach­ing me Ara­bic. We met in a store ’cause they have re­stric­tions about com­ing up to a wom­an’s apartment…They don’t think you un­der­stand Eng­lish, but I speak Span­ish and Ital­ian. One time this la­dy said she thought I was dis­gust­ing. I told her “You’re dis­gust­ing!” in Span­ish. I was pee­ing my pants. I was hys­ter­i­cal.
