    Have you ever wondered why it's OK to make jokes about Catholics, the Pope, Jews, Christians, the Irish, the Italians, the Polish, the Chinese, the French (including French Canadians) etc., but its insensitive to make jokes about Muslims? We need to level the playing field for the sake of political correctness..... Jeff Foxworthy on Muslims: 1. If you refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor, You may be a Muslim. 2. If you own a $3,000 machine gun and a $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes, You may be a Muslim. 3. If you have more wives than teeth, You may be a Muslim. 4. If you wipe your butt with your bare hand but consider bacon to be unclean, You may be a Muslim. 5. If you think vests come in two styles: Bullet-proof and suicide. You may be a Muslim 6. If you can't think of anyone you haven't declared jihad against, You may be a Muslim. 7. If you consider television dangerous but routinel

      7. If you consider television dangerous but routinely carry explosives in your clothing, You may be a Muslim.

      8. If you were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs, You may be a Muslim.

      9. If you have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four, You may be a Muslim.
