losers!

I just thought of something funny. Someone once told me not to eat at a Shia's house because they pee in their food and then serve it to you...lol...

Maybe they thought the lemon juice was pee.

lol...no it's all that hatred between Sunnis and Shias in my country...

Oh, I know. I was kidding. I'm aware of the hatred. It's not just in your country. Shia and Sunni politicians in India take turns siding with Hindus just to spite each other. It's silly.

Oh I totally got the joke. I don't know why I felt the need to explain. I side with you on the silliness. I was to hear was shias think of us though...
