Any old bullet can kill an Islamic terrorist, but is that enough? The people at South Fork Industries in Idaho don't think so, so they've created what they're calling "Jihawg Ammo," bullets coated with paint that has been infused with pork. The airtight logic is that hitting Muslims with the bullets will make them unclean under Islamic law. "With Jihawg Ammo, you don't just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell," the company boasted in a press release.

But believe it or not, this idea does not hold up to rigorous religious scrutiny. "There is no penalty for coming into contact with pork given by the Koran," a professor of religious studies tells CBS Seattle. "To my knowledge, Muslims, especially unknowingly, would not be banned from heaven for … getting hit by pork." (More Islamophobia stories.)
