Big Mo says No to alcohol-fuelled vehicles
GOSH, can you believe that almost a whole month has elapsed without us having had a “mad Muslim cleric” story on this blog?
Just as we were beginning to think that the mullahs had run out of fatwa fodder, along comes Saudi imam Mohammed al-NajimiÂ who has issued a religious edict forbidding Sons of the Prophet from using alcohol as a substitute for petrol.
Trumpeted the old loon:
I warn Saudi students that live abroad not to use alcohol as a cheap substitute for petrol, because the prophet has cursed not only who drinks it but also those who use it for other purposes.
The Saudi daily, Shams, claims that many students and researchers who live in western countries use alcohol as an alternative source of fuel, because it is cheaper, pollutes less and many automobiles lately have been made to run with alcohol.
Of course, they also use it as a means to get completely shit-faced, but the Saudi press just ain’t that keen on pointing out how much a-whoring and a-boozing their nationals engage in when abroad.
By the way, General Motors Flex Fuel cars run on waste beer supplied by Coors. Waste beer? Surely that’s gotta be urine?
