She'd be a lot less funny if she ever admitted that she'd made a total fool of herself

OMG...ROFL....LMAO.... I'm suffering paroxysms of abbreviation-sickness here. You see, I just noticed what may be the funniest example yet of Bonni Benstock-Intall's inability even to cut and paste a story properly. Here she not only introduces an illiterate typo, she then goes on to make her own error the subject of the story.

Here, using the magic of CUT and PASTE, is the original story from Turkey's Hurriyet Daily News (the highlighting is mine):

Investigation launched after claims of mosque attack in NATO base

The Public Prosecutor's Office has launched an official investigation into a mosque attack at the NATO İncirlik Air Base in the southern province of Adana, following claims that the attack was carried out by U.S. soldiers, Doğan News Agency has reported.

Turkish and U.S. generals, as well as other relevant authorities, will be asked for information about the incident as part of the investigation, reports said.

Local media in Adana had earlier reported that a number of soldiers at the İncirlik base entered the mosque on New Year’s Eve, destroying its minbar and windows along with the Quran. Turkey’s chief of staff subsequently denied the allegations.

Windows in the prayer room were broken by unknown individuals and there was some additional small-scale damage, the chief of staff said in a written statement issued late Jan. 10.


(A minbar is the pulpit of a mosque.)

Now here is Bonni's version, complete with incorrectly transcribed text from Hurriyet Daily News (this time the highlighting is Bonni's):

HUH? U.S. soldiers accused of destroying a minibar inside a mosque at NATO Air Base in Turkey

A minibar in a mosque? Are they serious?

Hurriyet Daily News The Public Prosecutor’s Office has launched an official investigation into a mosque attack at the NATO İncirlik Air Base in the southern province of Adana, Turkey following claims that the attack was carried out by U.S. soldiers, Doğan News Agency has reported.

Local media in Adana had earlier reported that a number of soldiers at the İncirlik base entered the mosque on New Year’s Eve, destroying its minibar and windows along with the Quran. Turkey’s chief of staff subsequently denied the allegations. Windows in the prayer room were broken by unknown individuals and there was some additional small-scale damage, the chief of staff said in a written statement issued late Jan. 10.

Now in my last post I said that "randy63ism" from Tulsa appeared less intelligent than Timothy McVeigh or Osama bin Laden, and I stand by that (probably less fun to hang out with than either, too). But he clearly knocks spots off Bonni when it comes to common sense, as he points out her howler to her not once but twice in the comments. (Though not before putting his own foot in it, as the snip here shows). Still, at least he twigged eventually. Clearly he is but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly he can tell a minbar from a refrigerator.

Bonni, on the other hand, sails on in blissful ignorance, because what does it matter if she prints rubbish? Her sheep will swallow it whole anyway (see all the other comments). Whoever heard of a questioning sheep? (Fictional ones don't count.)

If Bonni imagines that all women are as stupid as she is, no wonder she doesn't think they should ever have been given the vote. (Of course, she opposes letting black people vote too: they hardly ever vote for neofascists, after all.) Highlighted text is Bonni's interpolation into a piece from All Alabama.)
