Would you like some BS with that pizza Private?

August 28, 2009

Some ridiculous story is making the news today, via The Telegraph, of a British soldier, down from Iraq for some R&R in Kuwait ( that’s an oxymoron in itself) who claims he was kidnapped by ‘Islamic fanatics’ when he nipped out for a pizza in the middle of Ramadan’……LOL.

Now I think it could have been one of several things – he’s suffering from PSD (Pre Pizza Stress Disorder) , he’s been ‘boynapped’ by a few sex crazed Saidies or some Bengalis felt there was a penny or two to be made from this bloke if they could only get into his pants…..or….he woke up after having consumed copious amounts of distilled Eth and hadn’t a clue where he was…..and thought he could fly …. off the balcony.

Nice try Private, but here in Ramadan nobody has the strength to carry out a kidnapping, never mind contemplate one.
