    Where the Streets Have No Name

  20. FORWARD!

  21. On his way home from the wedding, Ahmed suddenly realized he didn’t play the guitar and he’d never learned to shoot an AK rifle. Then he understood why the streets were empty.

  22. Suddenly, it occurred to this Rasmussen poll taker that it wasn’t the gun scaring respondents away.

  23. With a full magazine and a guitar, Ahmed was ready to rock and roll in more ways than one.

  24. Jeremy says:

    Hoping to breathe new life into their franchises, the creators of Guitar Hero and Call of Duty. join forces.

  28. rodney dill says:

    “Now I just need to find Noah’s Deli…”

  29. The man Ahmed was going to see was a traitor. But Ahmed couldn’t remember whether he’d been told to make him pay or make him play.

  30. The dusky houses about Ahmed stood faint and tall and dim; the trees towards the park were growing black. Night, the mother of fear and mystery, was coming. Then suddenly a change, the passing of something–he knew not what–and then a stillness that could be felt. Nothing but this gaunt quiet.

    Aleppo’s ruins about him gazed at him spectrally. The windows in the white houses were like the eye sockets of skulls. About him his imagination found a thousand noiseless enemies moving. Terror seized him, a horror of his temerity. He turned ran headlong from this unendurable stillness.

    An insane resolve possessed him. He would die and end it. And he would save himself even the trouble of killing himself.

    He knew he would die, but unlike so many of his countrymen, he would die fighting and singing.

    With apologies to H.G. Wells

  31. CSK says:

    “I can’t hear you; I have a banana clip in my ass.”

  32. KRM says:

    Can you tell me how to get,
    How to get to Sesame Street

  34. ♫We will, we will, rocket you — Everybody Now! — We will, we will, rocket you♫

  35. “First, I will play for you a lovely ballad on my guitar. Then, I WILL KILL YOU!”

  36. “Hey, Dude. Check it out. I think the Battle of the Bands is just about to get serious.”

  37. No one knew for sure if MTV’s Syria Unplugged would be a hit or not. So everybody held their breath, kept their fingers crossed and their body armor close by.

  38. Brian says:
