Britain is under attack...

... From a rubbish Al-Qaeda tribute band. Thank god they're so piss poor at being terrorists, and have instead spent the last few days proving that the difference between tragedy and comedy is timing.

Their first car bomb fails to go off, their second one gets towed away by the clampers, and now their devastating attack on Glasgow airport ends with two smouldering terrorists being helped out of their lightly burning car by the police.

Hopefully, this will all seem just as funny in a week or two.

its all rather exciting, i might just go to an airport for the day to see if a comic duo turn up

I can just see old dusty bin laden saying "if you want a job doing properly around here, you have to do it yourself"

maybe he might get some Poles to do it

can you imagine how pleased David Cameron is? "The terrorists just aren't as good as they were under Tony Blair..."

Actually, this is all dangerously tasteless and a bit bobbins.

Talking of which, it's about time the comedy support act that is the Met shot someone innocent.

yup, if you own a Merc or a Jeep, be very very worried

I have to say, i do like this "Britain under Attack" headline the newspapers are running with - We, as in the UK, produce more carnage and deaths on the road each week, then these bunch of muppets

Let's all hope that the incompetence continues (or preferably not at all).

Turns out one of them was working as a GP. Genius.

"Don't worry about the smoking, Mr Stuart. And fried bread counts towards your five a day..."

At the risk of appearing totally tasteless, it put me in mind of the Thompson Twins. "Doctor, doctor, can't you see I'm..."

Knit - I do think that's funny but I'd find it funnier if one of them hadn't been working in my LOCAL hospital until fairly recently.

The fact that his Mrs was still a lab technician does make me wonder if my recent results (your fine darling no abnormal cells) are bollocks! - just out of spite!

What I love is that their Glasgow Bombing was clearly based on a rag week stunt.

They went from "pushing a bed through town for terror" straight to "well, what if it was a burning bed?", before arriving at, "lightly smouldering chelsea tractor".
