Friday quiz (on a Saturday)


Q: What have former President of the Republic of Poland, Aleksander Kwasniewski (he's the one below) and World’s Most Wanted, Super Terrorist, Uber-Weird Beard and Cave Dweller, Osama bin Laden got it in common?

Answer: They are both fans of Arsenal FC!

Kwasniewski used to work in a pub opposite the old Arsenal football ground in north London and ended up going to see ‘the Gunners’ often.

Osama bin Laden was also a keen follower of Arsenal when he was in London in the 1990s. In fact, after 9/11 the club actually put him on the banned list of unwelcome spectators - like some Super Hooligan! Quite why he supported that particular club and not, say, Queen’s Park Rangers, Fulham, Chelsea or West Ham is probably down to him having the misconception that he could rearm the Muhadjeen via the Arsenal.

1. both are soccer fans

2. they both follow or have followed fanatical ideologies

3. both have not completed a post secondary education i.e. no actual degree


This is a tough question on one hand some people may say the former communist stooge Kwaśniewski is a fat politically irrelevant drunkard. While Osama is a homicidal maniac and religious fanatic trying to drag his fellow Muslims back to the middle ages. But wait a minute I can see a perverse sort of commonality.

Both wish they could be President of the US?

And I thought bin Laden was a Tottenheim Hotspurs fan.

BTW, WTF is a hotspur?

というか、彼らは弱くて孤独の痛みに耐えられない普通の人だからだと思う。
へんな相手と結婚することで人生がめちゃめちゃになったり、みんなから馬鹿にされたり、笑われたりもするし、愛のある結婚で素晴らしい人生を送ることもできる。
この差は大きいかもしれないね。

よし、お見合いしようっと。
