Lucky Strikes (Almost)

LOST DOG!!!

3 legs, Brown with some patches of fur missing, tail cut short from lawn mower accident, blind in one eye. Answers to the name of "Lucky"

So this might be a bit of gallows humor, but "Lucky's" human counterpart showed up at a US Installation the other day.

Chapman PRT in the Khowst area reported the other day that a man with one arm and one eye showed up at the front gate allegedly seeking medical attention when he produced a grenade, pulled the pin and held it waiting to see 80 virgins promised to all suicide bombers. He's still waiting. The grenade didn't go off. He had another grenade on him as well as 2 anti-tank mines strapped to his body which he apparently was hoping would explode as a sympathetic detonation from the grenade in his hand.

So now Lucky is a guest of a US detention facility and in light of the considerable increase in his quality of life, maybe fortune has finally started to swing his way.

There's text, it's just black on black. Drag your mouse from the upper left corner of the text area to the lower right corner to highlight the text and you'll be able to read it.
