  1. Bithead says:

    Giving new definiitons of “Talk to the hand”
    Big Brother swats the opposition
    No, that’s not the Vulcan salute. Look at the poster over there, and try again.

  2. Hodink says:

    “And I say to you, ‘Bitch slap the oppressor!'”

  3. Scott_T says:

    reporter: So you are saying Mr. Arafat was wrong then???

    Abbas: Yes, that is what I said. Mr. Arafat has never been able to properly display the Vulcan sign of peace! This shall doom us to insignificance for eternity! When the Vulcans come to save Earth from itself, the Palestinian people shall not be able to greet them because of Mr. Arafat’s refusal to learn the proper ediquette of greeting foreigners.

    Not only shall we be marginalized by the United States but by aliens also!!

  4. “We have had enough of the administration of the Big Giant Head! We pledge that the Big Giant Hand will cme in and lift up our people.”

  5. “And that, my friends, is the sound of one hand clapping.”

  6. Ingress says:

    The “Live Long and Prosper” (if you are Palestinian) hand sign.

  7. McGehee says:

    Sadly, no one in the audience saw fit to warn him of the imminent smackdown.

  8. McGehee says:

    “You foolish red-state types see the hand in everything, don’t you? What…? AAAIIIIEEEEEE!!!!”

  9. McGehee says:

    Let’s try that again…

    “You foolish red-state types see the hand of God in everything, don’t you? What…? AAAIIIIEEEEEE!”

  10. Zed says:

    Years after the release of Sgt. Peppers the Muslim world is just now learning how to play records backwards.

    Foot note, On the Sgt. Peppers album there is a hand hovering over Paul’s head which started the belief that there was a cover up in Paul’s death, the hand was thought to mean that he was dead, I could go on about this but who cares

  11. pennywit says:

    Adam Smith’s hand reveals itself.

  12. Dailies from Peter Jackson’s remake of “King Kong” show a definite Middle Eastern influence in his work.

  13. Sgt Fluffy says:

    And seeing the only way to survive, Abbas announces that they have now joined the Band of the Hand.

  14. Scott_T says:

    Entry #2

    Having seen the success of the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien and Peter Jackson, Abbas declares that the new symbol of all jihadists shall be a tattoo of Arafat’s hand upon their forehead so they too could have the magical powers that they Urikai had to fight the oppressive white man in LOTR.

  15. spd rdr says:

    Just look at the length of that lifeline!
    What more proof do you need that Yassir was poisined by the Zionists?

  16. Maniakes says:

    Talk to the croud ’cause the hand ain’t listening.

  17. Kenny says:

    “Our enemies are wrong my brothers! Clearly you can see that I most certainly DO NOT have hair on my palms!”

  18. David Harris says:

    Fresh out of foam “We’re #1” fingers, the PLO settles for the next best thing.

  19. Mark says:

    Dammit people, how are we ever going to get a state if we cannot even do Spock’s “live long and prosper” gesture correctly?

  20. Yassir Arafat’s pimp hand remains strong.

  21. Maggie says:

    “Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilea. … “

  22. David Harris says:

    The press conference turned into chaos when the fifth little piggy suddenly decided to make a break for it.

  23. Bouhaki says:

    “And I say to you, ‘Let the hand of God strike me dead, here and now, if I am wrong.'”

  24. Kent says:

    The old Palestinian leadership, moments from being cast aside by the hand of destiny.


    Seeking a break from the past, the Palestinian leadership remake themselves as “The Abbas Family,” complete with their own version of Thing.

  25. Digger says:

    *homer voice* Stupid contest, Mark stole mine

  26. Maggie says:

    ….and this little piggy cried ‘weee, weee, weee’, all the way home!

  27. McGehee says:

    Unfamiliar with Western idiom, the Palestinians responded the only way they knew how, to the call to give Mr. Abbas “a real big hand!”

  28. cas says:

    “And may the spirit of our great brother Arafat come from the grave to smite me if I am lying to you today…A-I-E-E-E-E-E!!

    almost the same as McGehee, but…

  29. Rodney Dill says:

    “Where are all those silly Frenchmen running off to now?”

  30. McGehee says:

    Cas, it’s always nice to be an inspiration to others. 😉
