Al Qaeda have missed out on a sizeable cash windfall due to a missing self-addressed envelope.
An Al Qaeda video blooper was successfully submitted to the Harry Hill show, “You’ve been Framed!”, but they did not include a return address, causing some to speculate this was a deliberate move for fear of reprisals from the British security services.
The hilarious clip, which shows a masked man trip on his M16 assault rifle and shoot himself in the foot whilst leaving a cave, was said to be one of the highlights of the show.
A real shame
A spokesman for Mr Hill said, “It’s a great shame, the clip was hilarious, and now they’ll miss out on £250 because they are frightened MI6 would watch where they cashed the cheque. I feel a bit sorry for them.”
A security services spokesman was quoted as saying that although they like “a laugh and a joke as much as the next man”, this human side of Al Qaeda should not be “tolerated”.
“Sure it’s funny watching a terrorist shoot himself in the foot. It’s well worth £250 of anyone’s money. But remember that money would have gone towards killing you or I, so it’s probably best they didn’t include a self-addressed envelope.”
Al Qaeda were unavailable for comment.
