Can a Satire of ISIS Possibly Be Funny? BBC Viewers Are Split
by Dan Bilefsky
The comedy sketch opens with a hijab-wearing British woman named Afsana fretting over how to impress the Islamic State militants who recruited her. "It's only three days to the beheading, and I've got no idea what I'm going to wear!" she laments.
Another woman models her new suicide vest for her fellow jihadist wives. "What do you think?" she asks. "Ahmed surprised me with it yesterday."
A third woman reacts admiringly, typing into her phone and saying: "Hashtag OMG. Hashtag Jihadi Jane. Hashtag death to the West, ISIS emojis."
