Single Arab Male, looking for good time, with a party in his pants

Instapundit had this bit from the Washington Post that is too good not to share.

The 23-year-old Nigerian man accused of the attempted Christmas Day bombing of an American airliner apparently turned to the Internet for counseling and companionship, writing in an online forum that he was “lonely” and had “never found a true Muslim friend.”

    We all feel lonely at times, but so what? When I first moved to Seattle five years ago, I was single, away from my family and had almost no friends within driving distance. I felt alone and miserable on an almost daily basis, for quite a while, before I met my wife. But guess what, I didn’t try to blow up any airplanes. There are probably millions, if not billions of people on the Earth who feel lonely at any given time, but they don’t try to blow up any airplanes either.

      Whenever Mrs. Firefly reads me a newspaper headline about some idiot going on a killing spree, then turning the gun on himself I always reply, “They always do that in the wrong order. Turn the gun on yourself, THEN go on the killing spree.”

    Eh the guy was a loser like Reynolds said. I feel no sorrow for him. No pity. World would be better off without him.
