Gents (this is a men’s blog only),
I am delighted to give you news of a great tragedy. The austere scholar and founder of the group formerly know as ISIL, al-Baghdadi, was killed last night in an American raid. While the loss of this avid soccer fan and religious icon will be missed, markets seem to like it, as Nasdaq futures are +28. Because of this, and I speak only for myself here on iBankCoin, I am celebrating the death of this man tonight, over some gimlets.
WaPo’s actual obit for a terrorist monster:
“austere religious scholar w/ wire-frame glasses”
“Mr. Baghdadi maintained a canny pragmatism”
“Acquaintances would remember him as a shy, nearsighted youth who liked soccer but preferred to spend his free time at the local mosque” pic.twitter.com/XFFBnUsHEO

Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi transformed himself from a little-known teacher of Koranic recitation into the self-proclaimed ruler of an entity that covered swaths of Syria and Iraq https://t.co/CNI5XBsoai

While other nations are disgusted by our American brand of media, I am incredibly grateful for all of their efforts, as I do admit finding joy and laughter in the psychosis of others. “The Fly” is a gregarious chap and sees the bright side in all things, which is why I am so amiable. In the olden days here on iBC, I was a cantankerous meddlesome force, dark and evil, always banning persons from commenting on the site. Not today. iBC is a beacon for freedom and expression. If you wanted to praise the evil man Trump whilst declaring al-Baghdadi to be an awful individual, you can do so here without reprisal.
Good evening.Comments »
