Syria has its own version of Gaddafi’s virgin bodyguards. They’re called “The Lionesses for National Defense,” not a very catchy title, and their uniforms are not as visually arresting as Libya’s virgin bodyguards or the Iranian female ninjas. Clearly the Syrians lack marketing expertise.

I’m going to go with what Chevy Chase said in the 70’s on SNL about women in the military – “Make it an ALL female military. That way, when somebody beats us, we can say – ‘So what? You beat a bunch of women!'”.

Just sayin’.

Just when you thought Syria couldn’t get any weirder.

Is Assad afraid he isn’t going to get his 40 virgins in heaven (though why virgins are such a reward I’ll never understand) so he has them here instead? Why aren’t THEY in Burkhas?

Well, since Islam seems to have such a liking for blood, I can understand the virgins thing, plus, when you’re packing a Gherkin, you want as tight a sheath as possible.

Hang on, now. When you say that “The Lionesses for National Defense” is not catchy… well, maybe not in English. It might very well be a groovy snappy name in Arabic. Remember: Batman translates into Das Fliedermaus Herren, which is fairly unimpressive.

I don’t care what language, “Virgin Lionesses” would be a better name.

Ah yes. I think I’ll apply to be a medic for that unit. “Turn your head left and cough, ahh, now to the right please….yes…cough. Thank you. See you tomorrow. Next please.”
One cant be too careful about inguinal hernias in military units you know.

No reason they shouldn’t be checked regularly. Just in case.
