Amazing Radio Contest Prizes

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) An Islamist insurgent-run radio station in Somalia says it is awarding guns, bombs and books to three children in a Quran recital contest.
Andulus radio station is run by the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militia.
The station announced Monday that the first prize winner in the contest received a rifle and $700, the second prize winner got a rifle and $500, and the third prize winner received two bombs.
All three children also received religious books.
Al-Shabab is battling Somalia's weak, U.N.-backed government. The militants have recently been weakened by famine in territory they control.

When I was six I would have submitted multiple entries for that one. Wow! With the bombs we could have dammed the creek and had a fine swimming hole.
