Eco-Friendly Jihad

Irish comedian/social satirist Abie Philbin Bowman is supercasual, but his jokes come thick and fast. With his rapid-fire delivery, wit and taste for paradox, he calls to mind both Swift's Modest Proposal and Robin Williams' riffing genie in Aladdin. He observes that while the U.S. delivers its lethal power via huge, expensive transport planes, al-Qaeda operatives carry theirs on foot, so obviously the jihadists create a smaller carbon footprint. Bowman's material is so rich that occasionally one suffers psychic overload: I sometimes missed joke no. 4 because I was still pondering nos. 1, 2 and 3.
