“At 1:50 PM EEST on 24 November 2017, the al-Rawda mosque was attacked by roughly 40 gunmen during Friday prayers. The mosque is located east of the town of Bir al-Abed in Egypt's North Sinai Governorate. It is one of the main mosques associated with the Jarriya Sufi order, one of the largest Sufi orders in North Sinai. The Jaririya order is named for its founder, Sheikh Eid Abu Jarir, who was a member of the Sawarka tribe and the Jarira clan. The Jarira clan resides in the vicinity of Bir al-Abed. The gun and bomb attack killed more than 305 people and injured more than 128, making it the deadliest terrorist attack in Egyptian history. It is the second deadliest terrorist attack of 2017 to date, after the Mogadishu bombings in October.” - Wikipedia

“I, ah, drew two eyes with a magic marker on the head of my penis, just above the pee spout. When Tina came back into the House Judicial Committee I was naked, and I manipulated the pee spout with my hand, um, so that it worked like a little mouth. I said, in a cartoon voice, ‘Tina, Tina, I want you to support my position on the Standard Merger and Acquisition Reviews Through Equal Rules Act of 2017.’ But, now she claims I sexually harassed her. What the hell is she talkin about?” (this is a collaborative toon)
