And it's a doosy...


Seven dead at kite-flying festival


:indif: No, I'm not ****ting you. Read on,



"SEVEN people were killed and more than 100 injured in Pakistan during the annual kite flying festival marking the arrival of spring, officials said today.

An 18-month-old girl's throat was cut by a stray kite string while she was travelling with her parents on a motorbike, witnesses said, adding that she died on the spot.

Three people were electrocuted when metal wires they were using to fly or catch stray kites fell on live electric lines, and two people fell from roofs, hospital officials said.

A 12-year-old boy died while trying to catch a stray kite when he was hit by a car on a main road, police said.

More than 100 people had been reported injured since last night in various kite-related accidents, medical workers said. "

Dang...that's sad.

Who would think something as supposedly peaceful as flying kites would cause so much pain and suffering?

We should ban kites. They're obviously a weapon of terror.

I can see the headlines now.....

"President Bush orders an assault on a local park today because it is believed there are kites of mass destruction there."

Who needs million-dollar F-16 fighters and B-2 bombers or nuclear warheads when you got the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

"And now to news in Iraq. Today 15 F-16 Air Force pilots were systematically shot down by rebels wielding yet another one of their low-tech weapons...uh...kites. Um, Bob, is this a typo?"

I feel sorry for them, but you have to admit that it's pretty damn funny.

Wheel of morality, turn turn turn, tell us the lesson that we shall learn. And the moral of the story is...

When trying to light a fish on fire underwater, always remember the futon.

Actually, the real moral here is, never go outside

Ever heard of these nutters who put glass shards on their kite strings and attempted to cut each other's kites out of the skies with the shards? Well, in the end, the kite strings came down and slit some of them on the throats. And its a true story. What do you all make of that?
