Riches Seek Me Out
"Did you and Aisha enjoy your honeymoon, Mohammed?"
Good fortune continues to seek me out. Just over a month ago I found I had won $1,843,210 in a lottery in which I didn’t even participate.
Tonight I found riches seeking me out from Iraq, from a Mrs. Aisha Mohammed. Where had I heard that name before? Oh yes, Mohammed and his child bride, Aisha. As we students of religion recall, the man who brought us Jihad also was quite a hand with the ladies, and liked to start them young. Muhammad was 52 and Aisha was 9 when he married her and sexually consummated their marriage.
The ancient Aisha was screwed then, but the modern Aisha wants to reverse roles.
The following is an unedited copy of the email I received today informing me of my good fortune.
