    Default How many jihadists can your car hold?

    I think I'm going to be sick...


    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A car dealership's tongue-in-cheek radio advertisement declaring "a jihad on the automotive market," will not be changed, the company said, despite drawing sharp criticism that the ad's content is offensive.

    Several stations rejected the spot from Dennis Mitsubishi, which boasts that sales representatives wearing "burqas" -- head-to-toe traditional dress for Islamic women -- will sell vehicles that can "comfortably seat 12 jihadists in the back."

    "We firmly believe the ad does not in any way disrespect any religion or culture, but we feel, I guess, that maybe poking a little fun at radical extremists is fair game," dealership president Keith Dennis said on Saturday. "It was our intention to craft something around some of the buzzwords of the day and give everyone a good chuckle and be a little bit of a tension reliever."

    While Dennis defended the ad as a harmless attempt to bring levity to a serious situation, the Columbus chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations decried it as disrespectful.

    "Using that as a promotional pitch when so many are dying from the criminal activity of suicide bombers, that's not funny," chapter president Asma Mobin-Uddin said. "I don't think it's appropriate when it causes real pain. It exploits or promotes misunderstanding in terms already misunderstood or misused."

    In the ad, Dennis talks about "launching a jihad on the automotive market" and giving away toy swords to children.

    "Our prices are lower than the evildoers' every day. Just ask the pope!" the ad says. "Friday is fatwa Friday, with free rubber swords for the kiddies."

    A fatwa is a religious edict.

    Some radio stations are balking at the dealership's attempt to poke fun at extremists, though.

    "With no disrespect to their creativity or their desire to build business, everything we're about is promoting the values of diversity. To air things of that sort would go against our mission statement," said Jeff Wilson, general manager of three Radio One stations in Columbus.

    The dealership claims nothing in the ad is intended to promote a negative stereotype of Islam. A group that previewed the ad didn't raise any objections, although no one from the group was Islamic, Dennis said.

    Radio executives who heard the ad last week thought it was funny and aggressive, dealership general manager Aaron Masterson said.

    "This is one where we feel we're taking a bull's-eye on terrorists," Masterson said. "After all the nonsense that the terrorists put the public through, they're fair game."

    The ad, written and produced by the company, will begin airing next week, although he was uncertain of which radio stations had accepted the spot, Dennis aid.

    There is currently a print ad campaign (saw it in the paper over the weekend) involving VW, referring to it's car as "doping" because of it's superior perfomance off-road.

    Thus is the questionable art of auto salesmanship. Good taste does not enter into the equation.

    Now that's funny in itself.

    I know there's a one-liner here somewhere about "the decider(s)", but I got nothin'.......

    How many jihadists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    All of them.
    (One to hold the bulb and the rest to screw the world around it.)

    Did you hear about the Muslim strip club?
    It features full facial nudity!

    That's in better taste than the current VW television ads. One of these days, someone's going to sue them and their ad agency for Post Traumatic Stress after they have a flashback to their own violent car wrecks. Totally irresponsible way of illustrating a "point" about how well their airbags work, or whatever it is they're trying to say in those commercials.

    I guess the question should have the adjustment: pre or post mission?
