BIKE. BOMB. BUMP. BOOM!

cycle of violence is brought to an end in Pakistan:

Three members of a suspected suicide bomb team were blown to pieces on Saturday when their bike laden with explosives hit a bump outside a town in Pakistan’s central province of Punjab, police said …

At least two of the dead men were students at a nearby madrasa, suspected of having links to Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan, a banned Sunni Muslim sectarian militant group, according to Deputy Superintendent Bashir Ahmed.

“The head of one man has been blown off,” Ahmed told Reuters. Another of the dead men had his legs blown off, while the third had his stomach ripped open and died later in hospital, police said.

The bike isn’t in great shape, either. More from Gateway Pundit.

UPDATE: “Ridin’ along on a pushbike honey …”

UPDATE II: “Sounds like the Pakistani version of Critical Mass.”

    1. Three jihadis on one bike, with a bomb!, is a “work accident” waiting to happen.

    1. Occ Health and Safety training seems to be non-existant.

      Too bad, so sad.

    1. It only needs one to deliver a suicide bomb.  What were the other two, on work experience?

    1. Ridin’ along on a pushbike honey

      You looked so splodey
      As you were ridin’ alo-ong
      You looked so splodey
      As you were singin’ this so-o-ong

      Round round wheels
      Goin’ round round round
      Down up pedals
      Down up down (ah-ooh)
      But I gotta get across
      To the other side of town
      Before the bomb goes off
      Hey hey hey hey

    1. At times it’s easy to get down, thinking there is no justice in the world.  Then you read a story like this, and laugh your ass off, and say to yourself “maybe there is, just maybe”.

      Am I the only one that thinks this was scene from a Pink Panther movie?

    1. Brett,

      Maybe one was a supervisor and the other was an apprentice.  Hell, for a third world country that’s a pretty lean organization.

    1. Jihadists. Phht. These guys were making a movie version of the Road Runner. If the police look under that safe embedded in the road they will find a fourth would-be star. Oh yes, Sipah-e-Sahaba is Urdu for beep, beep.

    1. Maybe it wasn’t an accident. Did anyone stop to think that the BIKE was the target?

      Evil jihadists. They will stop at nothing.

    1. Mussi had a tandem bike
      And on it he did ride
      With 2 of his best friends
      across the desert countryside

      They loaded ‘er up with TNT
      and other fearful things
      but in their haste they simply forgot
      to mend the suspension springs

      As the infidels came into view
      They dreamed of a virgin feast
      But then they hit a little bump
      And were spread across the Middle East!

    1. (sorry Freddie)

      Bicycle bombers are coming your way
      Despite what the SMH may say
      The prophets’ youth league they’ll be riding today
      So look out for those beards oh yeah
      On your marks get set, blow
      Bicycle race bicycle race bicycle race
      All I want to do is……

    1. Three punjabi peanuts sat on a bicycle
      their hearts were all a-flutter
      Oh look out – it’s a speed hump!
      Oh no – peanut butter!

    1. I’ve always said those contraptions were death-traps,

      The VC came up with a novel idea to stop their pedal-pedoes being nicked from outside the tagetted bar/installation/flozzy parlour full of Imperialist running dogs- they left the dynamo for the lights on the rear tyre, so if some Saigon rapscallion decided to twock the treadalie, as soon as it reached a speed that would generate enough current it’d initiate the detonator and set off the main charge- bicycle theft became unknown.

      A bloody good ploy- I’d like to have a chunk of C4 in the seat of my car, which goes live if it’s started without the key.

    1. maybe it was a dummy run.

      hey, to be fair, they weren’t at their best – only last week one of em burnt his lips off trying to blow up the bike

    1. Three brave jihadis rig a bike
      To murder those that they dislike.
      And, one by one, they climb aboard
      (a second bike they can’t afford)
      And lustfully they contemplate
      Such luscious carnage! They can’t wait!
      Faster! Faster! While God laughs
      And puts a pothole in their path.

    1. Habib,

      I wonder whether any VC took off home somewhat tanked & forgot to deactivate the detonator.

    1. #17 Many years ago I worked with a member of the Coffin Cheaters bikie gang. Vietnam veteran and all-round nice guy, but a bit whacko. What the hell, he was an outlaw bikie.

      Anyway, he had a explosive charge wired to the starter coil of his Harley so if anyone tried to steal it, nice little explosion under the fuel tank to take away the middle third of the would-be Harley thief’s body.

      I once asked him what would happen if he was pissed and forgot to disarm the charge. His attitude was that if he was that careless, he deserved to die.

    1. A “suspected suicide bomb team”? They killed themselves together with an explosive device; how they could possibly fail to meet that description?

    1. And i bet they weren’t wearing helmets either.  Damned unsafe work practises can only lead to an accident.

    1. #26 – I think the jury is still out as to whether the bike was laden with explosives or whether they’d pumped up the pressure in the big tyre of their Penny Farthing too far and it blew up – with devastating consequences.
