...Choose Not To Blow People Up!
The original Reuters headline reads, "Iraqi girl aborts suicide bombing, surrenders," which struck me as one of the least-controversial uses of that verb that begins with "a." That's a kind we can all support!
Remember, kids: when they ask you to blow people up, fake 'em out! Think of the stories you'll be able to tell your grandchildren. The ones you wouldn't be around to have if you went along with the madmen.
Swlep me, if people start an argument over the more-typical use of the word, I will pull the plug on commenting, just that fast. There's places for that. Here is not one of them.
