The Lyrics

Ten little Jihadists were drawn up in line
One got to his senses and then there were nine

Nine little Jihadists at boot camp trained
One oopsed with his gun and then there were eight

Eight little Jihadist were promised a place in heaven;
One got his fuse too short and then there were seven

Seven little Jihadists went war against the Yanks
Six were left as one was run over by tanks

Six little Jihadists, they fought just like vipers;
Five remained still as one was pwned by snipers

Five little Jihadists, they wanted to fight some more;
They got in a firefight and then there were four

Four little Jihadists, they rigged an IED;
The bomb went off just like planned and then there were three

Three little Jihadists, they planned a strike at zoo
One went there postal and then there were two

Two little Jihadists, they rigged a car bomb
One chose to drive it and then there were one

One little Jihadist remained all alone,
Alas! He got married - and then there were none

not familiar with the original song but very accurate about these pigs. these cowards are after the "infidels". hey cowards - try going after some infidels in china or russia. the cowards wont cause they'de have thier land turned to glass, unlike our PC american militaries who have to slice & dice to protect the innocent. not a slam on our militaries by the way as they are the best and to be honored ! most americans like a spade being called a spade. a few wacko lefties wanna sugar coat things to not offend. well, because of these muslum pigs and leftie PC demands we had more innocent military die. great to see truths about these pigs to come forth even in parody land.

."..and then there were none" ... if only....

"pwned by snipers" was a clever mixed metaphor, as being pwned (computer hacked) may cost a lot of money and aggravation, but is usually not fatal. Clever. "go postal" was a LOL moment! -- Your cultural knowledge of the US is amazing. I know you've visited -- how many years altogether? ... but I doubt the jihadists know the expression, :) Three little Finn-Five-ists!

Tommy, not even a month, if all my trips are calculated together. Yet I am a very old Internet user (yup, since 1988!) and I have learned a lot of the American culture indirectly via the Net. My grandparents also lived in Minnesota during the inter-war years, and I have learned of the life in US and the culture from them. The original song is, of course, the theme of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None". The best way to get rid of extremist ideologias is getting married and getting someone you love and who loves you - it dampens hot feelings a lot.

-- But then, you get only one virgin -- maybe -- instead of 72. :) ....Very perceptive, though; most of these suicide bombers are boys in their teens, maybe young twenties, bursting with hormones and no permitted outlet. Death might sound preferable....

Interesting that you go back to the old ARPANET/USENET etc. days! .... OS is actually a US folk song dating at least to the 1860's, about 70 years before Christie used it for suspense -- just as The Vogues' "Turn Around, Look At Me" from 1968 (recently parodied by yours truly & co. -- no plug) was later used as the theme for a suspense movie, as it sounds like a stalker.

"Love is the opiate of the masses"? heh heh ... I've always found that it *strengthens* my hot feelings ;).... and when I get married, and then get someone I love and who loves me, the wife seems to get pretty mad. ;-) Heippa!

Are you indeed Finnish? If so, may the spirit of Jean Sibelius inhabit you always. Long live Suomi (from a slightly less ignorant than usual American). ;)
